Bella Vista Key Performance Indicator Review 2017 

Time frame for the chart above is from Jan 2011 to Dec 2017 and it depicts the absorption rate of real estate specific to the Bella Vista sub area or neighbourhood with the North Okanagan zone.  

From 2011 to mid 2013 sellers almost always faced absorptions rate of 2 years or more based on the number of properties on the market compared to the number of sales. Fast forward to  2017 where most of the year there was less than 5 months supply.

Historic Look At Bella Vista Real Estate Sales Volume  

This chart reflects the MLS® property sales by month. The trend line shows clearly that sales volume has climbed steadily - although the jagged variation shows  the seasonal nature of Okanagan real estate sales activity, with less sales in the winter months.

Historic Trend of Active Listings  

You can see that the number of properties brought to the market in recent years is trending downward. The first chart we showed you - the absorption rate - is a direct result of the reduction of properties coming to market in combination with the second chart - which shows the increase in properties SOLD. Trends like this tend to favour sellers.

Historic Median / Average Days On Market Trends for Bella Vista Residential Sale 


 This chart shows the comparison between the average days a property was on the market. ( From Activation to Final Subject Removal) . Bella Vista properties generally need more time on the market than in some other neighbourhoods to get sold as they are in a higher price point. However - you can see the downward trend over time as market activity has picked up  since 2014.

Historic Median Sale Price Trend for Bella Vista Residential Sales 

The chart above shows the upward trend of the Median (middle of the market) sale price by month over the last 7 years. Because of the variety of sizes and types of properties sold at Bella Vista (Lots to Lakeshore luxury) the measure of the middle of the market is not as meaningful as it is in other neighbourhoods. It is mandatory to evaluate the properties that sold to gain understanding of the true TRENDS.
