How's the market, where's it going?

... bustling RE agents we hear from. Inventory generally seems to be coming down, but perhaps more so in resale homes than in new homes. I noticed in Vernon (North okanagan) the average price of a new unsold homes was around $750,000. Whew, the builders must be expecting some celebrities to buy here. ...

Re: BC Developer suing feds over bombs on Vernon land

There have been local news articles about efforts of the feds to sweep the DND grounds and it is common knowledge that these things turn up now and then.
