The Real Estate Market on the Sunshine Coast has come into a balanced one this second quarter. Rising interest rates and an influx of listings with sellers trying to capitalize on the market are bringing the sales to active ratio right around 20% opposed to the 60% it was at this time last year. Meaning that solds aren't exceeding listings; creating more of a balance.
More specifically, we aren't seeing a lot, if any, multiple offers anymore. Instead, negotiations and subjects are back on the table; bringing a normal buying procedure again and allowing buyers to get a good deal.
I do expect more listings to continue to come on the market and rates continue to rise. Buyers are certainly still out there enjoying these new listings finally coming on and seeking to buy.
If you are a buyer and had put pause on buying until market relaxed, now is the time to reach out again and get your self set up for success!
If you're looking to sell, whether to downsize or upgrade, this is the time to capitalize and be able to execute a purchase in a more conventional process.

Sunshine Coast listings have been on the rise these past couple months. Last month, Active Listings jumped up 10%. From that, we jumped up another 35%, bringing us right into the balanced market.
Prices on the Sunshine Coast, BC have yet again gone up another 2% this month; pushing our benchmark further into the $1,000,000 mark. However, I am expecting prices to level out with the higher interest rates and jump up in listings for a more traditional real estate, this will just take some time to adjust.
