I’m back...for now...

The last seven months have been challenging and unfortunately will continue to be so. My cognitive abilities and energy level have definitely been impacted by my recent treatments (radiation and chemo). However, I’ve always liked a challenge and catching up on this blog would definitely offer that.

I have just added “SC 2016 Stats Post #9” below. I had it and another post more or less ready to go at the time of my brain malfunction. Reading it today is a challenge for me, so I hope it makes sense to you - at least the charts look good. There will be a few more posts coming to finish of 2016.

As for 2017 data, I think I might just upload the tables and charts and keep the text to a minimum just so that I can get caught up. Well, that’s the goal anyways.

SC - 2016 Stats Post #9

Sunshine Coast 2016 Single Detached Home Benchmark, Median, and Average Sales Price

I began my last post (#8) with the explanation that there are three data sources that I turn to for my statistics posts and that they all report single detached home sales differently:

  • REBGV: combines all price range SDH sales + MOP sales.
  • SC Realtor® Gary Little: combines all price range SDH sales; reports MOP sales separately.
  • Skook: combines SDH sales under $1 million dollars + MOP sales; reports $1 million dollar sales separately.

The table and chart below shows an important aspect of their reporting method - the number of sales used in their medium (MSP) and average (ASP) sales price calculation varies. To illustrate: in May 2016, the table on the left shows there were 16 sales ‘$1million’ and above and 3 manufactured on pad (MOP) sales.
