June is traditionally a busier month for Real Estate sales in Kelowna and the Central Okanagan, but this year it was one of the quietest for many years.
That being said, I had two new listings, one a +55 Condo in a popular Lower Mission location and one in a great Family Home neighborhood in West Kelowna, 1 received an offer the first day and the other in less than 14 days.
This tells me that there is still strong demand in certain areas of the Market, while other areas are still struggling.
Qualifying for Financing is still a big challenge for Buyers, and I have heard several reports that deals are continuing to fail due to Financing.
