Last time it was the tranquil properties of River Springs that were drawing the most Tri-Cities home hunters. But a new 2018 year-in-review infographic by property website REW has found a different neighbourhood had the most clicks last year – Anmore.
Homes for sale in Anmore saw the area’s highest average pageviews per listing across the year, said the website.
The neighbourhood that saw the biggest year-over-year price growth, however, was Harbour Chines – the median home list price was up 71 per cent year over year.
However, REW pointed out that a large increase in median list price doesn’t necessarily mean higher prices in the neighbourhood. In the case of Harbour Chines, there were relatively far fewer lower-priced units for sale last year, compared with the year before. The website also noted that drilling down to individual neighbourhoods means smaller sample sizes, which are prone to wider percentage changes.
The most commonly searched home type in the Tri-Cities was a three-bedroom house between $1.25 and $1.5 million, reported the website.
Across the Tri-Cities, REW reported that the median list price for a condo in 2018 was $540K, up 15 per cent year over year. For a detached house, it was $1,300,000 – four per cent higher than in 2017. However, the number of days to sell a home increased for both property types on an annual basis.
