SC - 2018 Stats Post #1

Sunshine Coast BC January - June 2018 Land Sales

I had good intentions to start posting 2018 stats in May, but it didn’t happen. So, in addition to January - April data, I’m tacking on May -June sales. The tables and charts are straightforward and need little explanation.

January - April 2018 Sales

May - June 2018 Sales

(Note: I just noticed I failed to make a data correction on both charts above. The May 2016 Peak should read 76 sales. I corrected the table but not the chart. Sorry, but I'm not doing the images over. They'll be correct when I post in future.)

I was curious to see how this year’s sales volume compares to the last two years. The small year-to-date sales table below answers that query.


I’ve been sitting here staring at that sales chart above. It’s absolutely stunning, isn’t it? You see an almost vertical rise and a near vertical fall around 2016. It almost appears as if the purchases were coordinated to occur within a short time frame. I guess that is what a “frenzy” looks like.

The tables below show how the madness manifested itself in the SC market areas - even Gambier Island had its party. The table on the right shows the sales momentum in 2015 and 2016 compared to the much slower sales in 2014.

My first inclination was to moderate to avoid trolling; however, l'll now take a wait and see attitude. Comments will appear as soon as published. If I start seeing garbage comments, I'll flick the switch and return to moderating. Skook
