So you want to live in Whitehorse? Has the real estate market changed? Let’s take a look and compare October 2021 vs October 2022 to see what it is like to buy a home in Whitehorse.
Has the real estate market changed since the Bank of Canada started to raise interest rates? The answer is a resounding yes! For the first time in nearly three decades, the federal Liberal and NDP governments with a coalition majority are tossing a wet blanket on the housing market. The proof is in the numbers.
In October 2021, the market was extremely hot, and buyers were competing with one another to buy a very limited supply of houses for sale. For example, in September, October and November 2021 there were about 10 houses (single-family) for sale at any one time and 30 homes of any type. In October of 2022, we are averaging about 50 houses (single-family) for sale and about 150 homes of any type. How much do houses actually cost year over last?
