Sooke Real Estate Statistics – July 2013

A living room of a home in Sooke, BC

2220 French Road sold in July, along with 25 other properties in Sooke

Sales activity in Sooke was nearly the same as it was in 2012, with prices remaining fairly flat overall. It is still my opinion that while prices seem flat, they are actually declining. This is to say that although the average and median prices seem to hover in the high $300,000s and low $400,000s, a buyer in 2013 is probably getting a nicer, larger and/or newer home for the same money as in 2012 or 2011. Sales activity continues to be better than last year in most cases, and it is good to see the number of houses for sale continue to decline.
