September Housing Market Update for Sunshine Coast BC

Although the housing market update for September was not as hot as anticipated and detached housing is moving toward a balanced market, the fundamentals of low inventory and continued demand will keep prices buoyant.

 

Externalities such as the federal government’s introduction of the stress test for insured mortgages to all uninsured mortgages as well as those having more than 20% down will put pressure on the market.

 

Look to the attached market to show even higher demand and for prices to continue to rise over the next months.
