December 2022 Parksville/Qualicum and Nanaimo Market Update

Posted on Jan 09, 2023 in Market Update


The market sure went out with a fizzle in the last month of 2022. We continue to see the difference a year can make when comparing the market statistics from December 2021 to December 2022. Prices are lower than they were a year ago while days on the market have gone up double or more.

April 2022 Parksville/Qualicum and Nanaimo Market Review

Posted on May 09, 2022 in Market Update


I haven't done one of these in a little while so thought I would start getting back to it especially since it seems we are starting to see a little change in the market!
