Welcome to the Nanaimo and Parksville/Qualicum real estate monthly market statistics newsletter for December 2020.

Although it was certainly a quieter holiday period than most people have experienced in recent years we hope that with the vaccine roll out things will be looking brighter for later this year.

The second half of 2020 was certainly a very busy time for real estate and it looks like this has carried on into the new year, if the first few weeks are an indication. We are seeing a shortage of properties for sale compared with the number of buyers that are looking. If you look at the graphs comparing sales with active listings this indicates that we do not have enough properties for sale to meet the demand. This is confirmed as it matches the drop shown on the ...

I have sold a property at 386 Urbains Pl.
Beautiful rancher on a large, private lot located in a quiet cul-de-sac in South Nanaimo. This bright and well kept home offers three bedrooms, one bathroom, a large living room and open concept kitchen/dining room. The kitchen has been mostly updated with plenty of cabinetry and counter space for all your cooking needs. Just off the dining room, there is a door providing you with access to a 259 Sqft wrap-around patio where you can relax and enjoy your morning coffee. The privacy from the surrounding trees will leave you feeling as though you have left the city for the suburbs. Grow your own vegetables in the garden already in existence, and store your tools/extra items in the outdoor shed. Close to shopping, bus routes and all other...

I have sold a property at 205 650 Prideaux St in NANAIMO.
Welcome to Park Place - units do not come up for sale very often in this popular centrally located building, especially with a great monthly strata fee of under $250. The spacious home has 2 bedrooms (or 1 bed and a den), good sized living/dining area and the adjacent kitchen has plenty of cabinet space. The unit has its own laundry room with stacking washer/dryer, that also benefits from having extra storage space. French doors lead from the living room into the bedroom/den which has a cozy electric fireplace. The deck is quite large and probably much bigger than you would expect and can be accessed from either bedroom, the den or the living room. The unit also has a storage unit located on the ground floor off the lobby....
