As to be expected, January 2018 was a quieter month for inquiries and showings in the Kelowna Real Estate Market.
Does this represent a 'shift' in our Real Estate Market? I don't believe so. We are still experiencing multiple offers and inventory is still lower.
In the last week, I have already started to experience an increase in inquiries. Investors are still looking, although my sense is they are becoming more nervous, wondering whether the market has peaked.
