The boom in real estate demand from 2016 to 2017 has seemed to level off into a more balanced market which we're now experiencing in 2018. A strong indication of this is seen in the average $sqft only increasing by a little over 7% for single family homes in North Nanaimo. This trend is more apparent with waterfront homes in North Nanaimo as the average $sqft has increased by under 1%.

In North Nanaimo, a levelling off of demand has increased the average days on Market (DOM)for a newly listed home from just over two weeks to days in 2017 to slightly over four weeks in 2018. Though this is nearly double the time required to sell a home, this is extremely fast in comparison to all previous years excluding 2017. 

Individuals looking to build a new construction home in North Nanaimo have an opportunity to save over 15% on the purchase prices of a lot as there seems to be a noticeable reduction in the average lot sales price.
