Market Update

This year began with a very slow start to sales and listing activity in Squamish. It would seem the big factor was the very tough winter market we all experienced and it was not until well into March that we began to see an uptick in the general market conditions. April moved along then we experienced similar sales activity in May 2017 to what was seen in May 2016 (the second best month of that year after the record sales in June).
So with 6 months worth of statistics in the books we can start to get a better picture of what may lay ahead for the balance of 2017.
