Happy New Year!  I hope your 2024 is off to a great start.

In the Cowichan Valley, the Real Estate market continued to drop in sale prices thru the first half of 2023 but appears to have hit bottom in May and has remained mostly level since, even trending ever so slightly upwards.

Although the number of units listed this past December were up marginally from numbers in December 2022, inventory continues to decline dropping overall by 11.16% in the last 12 months to date. Average Sale price also dropped by 5.54% over the last 12 months however the average sale price thru December 2023 was up by 4.66% over December 2022 going from $738,207 to $772,611.
