Central Okanagan (Peachland to Lake Country including Kelowna)
A Closer Look
Okanagan Mainline real estate board lists 173 foreclosures
80 are single family homes
87 are condos
The Single Family Homes are fairly well spread throughout the area, with 31 being inKelowna. They are in all price ranges, including 7 over a million dollars.
The good news is that last year 107 were sold, so the 80 for sale now represents an 8 month inventory.
The condos are a different story
11 are at Big White ski resort
13 are new condos in Brookstone and Sitara in Lake Country
35 are new condos in Copper Sky in West Kelowna
That leaves 28 spread throughout the area with only 21 in Kelowna.
The good news is that last year, 81 were sold so there is about 12 month inventory.
What is impressive is that with these foreclosures being sold at sometimes bargain prices, the average sale price of homes and condos in the Central Okanagan is still holding up well.
