Welcome to Kamloops, our precious hidden gem nestled in the middle of B.C.'s Southern Interior. We Kamloopsians are all too familiar with the many wonders of the city we call home, and when asked to pick the one place that we love most, many of us simply wouldn't be able to choose!

At Team Cavaliere - River City Realty, we are one of the many who would be unable to tell you just one part of Kamloops that we love best. That's why we want to give a tour of our city that doesn't only zero in on one, two, or three particular neighbourhoods; instead, we are going to show you every beautiful part of this town! Our tour is going to take you through the major geographic areas that make up Kamloops: the North Shore, the South Shore, and all the rest (which

Canadian Building Permits - February 2017

As per the most recent BC REA Economics Now Update, it appears that construction intentions are cooling off significantly in BC's biggest markets... but have no fear! We may see fewer new builds popping up this year, but the Kamloops real estate market is getting hotter and hotter by the day! The low inventory that we are seeing in Kamloops and the surrounding area means that new listings are selling very quickly and at extremely competitive prices.

Have a read below for the numbers behind the BC REA news release:

The total value of Canadian building permits decreased 6.6 % from November to December, the result of declining permit activity across all commercial and residential sectors. In BC,  permit

The British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA) has just released the numbers for real GDP growth of the United States for the final quarter of 2016 as well as for 2016 as a whole. These numbers were weaker than expected, at 1.9% growth in Q4'2016 and 1.6% growth for the year; numbers that were influenced by a variety of factors in the U.S.

Notable in this report is the prediction that this trend will not continue in 2017. Most economists are expecting the U.S. economy to achieve a growth rate of about 2.2% this year.

The pace of American economic growth could be a major factor contributing to the B.C. housing market in 2017. While an increase in growth in the U.S. usually means good things for us British Columbians, a stronger pace of

Amongst all of the chatter circulating about the B.C. government's HOME Partnership Program, we thought we would chime in with a few thoughts of our own. While it’s easy for us to simply agree with the government's move to implement this program because we are in the real estate industry, we believe that before we can agree, we must first educate ourselves and our clients on the big picture: an all-encompassing view of both the pros and the cons of this decision.

While I do very much support the B.C. Real Estate Association as well as this government initiative, I have decided to take a different approach to discussing this topic:

What are the negatives?

Negative #1:

The Kamloops Real Estate Board residential sales statistics for November 2016 have been released, showing an increase in residential sales value of 12.3% compared to November of 2015.  The number of single family residential properties sold was identical to last year’s at  135 units sold; however, fewer homes were listed and the number of active listings was lower as well.

Though active listing numbers were comparatively lower than those of 2015, the   results do follow the trend that we see annually as we move from the busy summer months into the cold Kamloops winter, and the decrease is proportional to the level of activity that we have seen throughout 2016.

The Kamloops Median Residential Price for single family homes landed at $417,300, above

As we approach the 4th Quarter of 2016 there is lots of chatter about the perceived slowdown in the Canadian Real Estate market. In reality, Kamloops continues to set records unlike the suggestion that our national, provincial, and municipal economies are slowing down. I’d really like to focus this post on sharing some of the reasons why I believe that things are actually looking really good for us in Kamloops and generally all Canadian when it comes to real estate and the economy.

On November 30th, the British Columbia Real Estate Association's Chief Economist, Cameron Muir, alongside his colleague, Economist Brendon Ogmundson, released a quarterly summary full of very positive and encouraging numbers. For example, following a 1.3% decline in the

Kamloops is rich with rental options, but there's no doubt that buying a home in this rapidly growing city is a very advantageous move. Between 2006 and 2011, Kamloops witnessed a growth rate of 6.6% and is expected to continue growing. This demand has led to the development of a wealth of beautiful new properties in the city, as well as increased variety in property types.

Spectacular, trendy condos and townhomes are being crafted throughout Kamloops, as are stunning new construction homes. Meanwhile, Kamloops' more established ranchers and bungalows are only appreciating, with the average sales price for the city leaping upward. You might be thinking, "If it's a seller's market, why should I buy?" Well — the term "seller's market" can be a little bit

The Kamloops Real Estate statistics for July 2015 has been released, showing very similar results, compared to July 2014 with 210 homes sold in July 2015 compared to 213 sold in July 2014. The Kamloops Median price for single family homes is still $367,500 - $500 higher than 2014. While these numbers are great, we feel that the market will remain very active, and reasonably stable over the next few months as the Federal Election ramps up.

One of the most active areas in July 2015 was Sahali which had 37 sales compared to only 24 sales in July 2014. Aberdeen continues to show strong sales, along with Brocklehurst, North Kamloops, and Valleyview. All areas seem to be very comparable to sales in July 2014. Although South Kamloops and Westsyde both
