Typically in our Okanagan Shuswap real estate region, the market changes first in the South, and gradually works its way North - from The Central Zone to the Shuswap.

The chart below shows the change in market demand compared to available inventory -what we call the Absorption rate - expressed in months - as to how long it would take at current demand to consume the properties available.

Shuswap Zone (Salmon Arm to Revelstoke):

In February of 2009 - it would have taken 54.40 months (hmmm insert Band reference here) - yes that is indeed 4 and 1/2 YEARS! 

In may of this year the Shuswap experienced it's most robust month  with just over 6 months supply of real estate available. Currently slightly more (6.81 months) of product is listed for sale.
