With the year half over, and the worth of homes as most peoples major financial asset we are working on a series of reports that deal with the Vernon BC Real Estate market - on a neighbourhood by neighbourhood basis.
This is our first post in this series.
Between January 1st and June 30, 2009 there were 60 real estate transactions in Vernon BC's East Hill Neighbourhood - and the breakdown looks like this:
Lots / Acreages= 1 sale
Single Family Homes = 53 sales
Strata Homes= 6
The building lot was listed at a price of $139,000 and sold for $137,000 in 77 days.
The houses that sold were listed at prices from $219,900 to $539,000 and achieved sale prices of $205,000 to $530,000 making the median list price $349,000 and the median or middle of the sale prices $330,000. The average list was $355,805 with the average sale price $342.004. These properties sold in a range of between 8 and 279 days with 85 days being the average time on the market for properties that sold. Twenty nine of the properties that sold had price reductions from the price they originally listed at, with these amounts varying from a low of $4000 to a high of $60,900 with the average reduction being in the area of $14,000
One home sold for 100% of the asking price and in 8 days. The other end of the spectrum saw the seller achieve 85.56% of the listed price at the time of the sale - after a $48,000 reduction or approximately 77% of what they had originally hoped - having listed just at the peak of the market. On average East Hill sellers attained 96.13% of the listed price at sale time when their properties sold. This is a reduction from the years prior.

All but 7 homes had more than one bathroom.

With warmest regards.
