OCEANFRONT guest cabin and a house with ocean view! Beautiful east facing location with breathtaking views. The main house is located at the street level on Quadra Loop which has very little traffic and is blissfully quiet . Lots of mature trees on the property and a nice garden. Lots of improvements, 16x10 loft added, fenced yard and a garden full of fruit trees, apples, plum, cherry, peach and a fig. The view is hard to beat, looking out to Marina Island and Cortes Island. In addition, there is a separate cabin at the bottom of the property that extends right to the beach. Very quiet and private location, with daily whale sightings during the summer. The property has a great potential for a short term rental or a summer home by the ocean. This is an artist's dream with lovely sitting areas and a private feel. It's a must see.

Finally, Spring is here, and we can finally work in the garden! I missed being outside doing what I love.

When it comes to Real Estate, it seems like the desired results of cooling down the market have been achieved by the government. The increase of interest rates seems to be slowing down some purchasers from committing currently. More rate hikes coming in June.

Here is a brief summary of what each real estate board is saying about their region: 

Campbell River
Additional inventory positive news for buyers.
“Higher interest rates may also be tempering how much buyers are willing to spend when making an offer. However, it is too early to say whether conditions are beginning to shift towards a more balanced market. According to the British Columbia Real Estate Association, housing markets in British Columbia are so lopsided that it will take a substantial decline in demand to return active listings to a healthy state.

That said, sales did dip in April. By category, 507 single-family homes were reported sold on the MLS® System in April, a 13 per cent decrease from one year ago and down by three per cent from March.”
In Campbell River, the benchmark price of a single-family home hit $769,800 in April, up by 31 per cent from the previous year.
Benchmark Price for an apartment: $385,700.
Benchmark Price for a Townhouse: $527,100.
Quadra Island
Quadra Island in April had 5 new listings, 3 sold (pending).

Cortes Island
April on Cortes Island had 2 new listings listed and 1 cancelled.

Calgary
“Following an all-time record high month of sales in March, activity slowed down in April. However, with 3,401 sales this month, it was still a gain of six per cent over last year and a record high for the month of April. “Despite some of the monthly pullback, it is important to note that sales remain exceptionally strong and are likely being limited due to supply choice in the market,” said CREB® Chief Economist Ann-Marie Lurie. “While further rate increases will likely start to dampen demand later this year, more pullbacks in new listings this month are ensuring the market continues to favour the seller, resulting in further price gains.”

The benchmark price of detached homes in the city of Calgary hit $628,900; semi-detached: $487,900; row home: $343,000; apartments: $272,600.

 Vancouver
“Metro Vancouver home sales return to more traditional levels in April. “So far this spring, we’ve seen home sales ease down from the record-breaking pace of the last year,” Daniel John, REBGV Chair said. “While a small sample size, the return to a more traditional pace of home sales that we’ve experienced over the last two months provides hopeful home buyers more time to make decisions, secure financing and perform other due diligence such as home inspections.”
The benchmark price for a detached home is $2,139,200. This represents a 20.8 per cent increase from April 2021.
The benchmark price of an apartment home is $844,700. This represents a 16 per cent increase from April 2021.
The benchmark price of an attached home is $1,150,500. This represents a 25 per cent increase from April 2021.

Toronto
“The Greater Toronto Area (GTA) housing market continued its adjustment to higher borrowing costs, with the number of transactions down on a monthly and annual basis. As has been the case with previous rate tightening cycles, some home buyers have moved to the sidelines to determine how they will reposition themselves in the marketplace given the higher rate environment and related impact on affordability.

“Based on the trends observed in the April housing market, it certainly appears that the Bank of Canada is achieving its goal of slowing consumer spending as it fights high inflation. Negotiated mortgage rates rose sharply over the past four weeks, prompting some buyers to delay their purchase. Moving forward, it will be interesting to see the balance the Bank of Canada strikes between combatting inflation versus stunting economic growth and related government revenues as we continue to recover from and pay for pandemic-related programs,” said TRREB President Kevin Crigger.”
The average price for a detached home in area (416) is $1,947,975.
The average price of a semi-detached home (416) is $1,494,640.
The average price of a townhouse (416) is $1,086,986.
The average price of a condo (416) is $820,835 as reported by the Toronto Regional Real Estate Board (TREBB).

I’m off, back to the garden before the rain comes! Enjoy the sun!
