Queen Charlotte was Canada’s 2518th most expensive suburb by listed median house price this month.

The $220,000 price tag on the median Queen Charlotte home means that it is about average price.

In province, the most common property on the listings this month has 3 bedrooms, in this neighbourhood it’s 2.

Across British Columbia Queen Charlotte has the 267th most properties on offer with 359.

Can we guarantee how well Queen Charlotte is going to do next year? No, but we can look at the data we have and use it as a starting point before doing research.

It’s always hard to tell what property prices will do over the coming months, but over the last three months the properties available for purchase in Queen Charlotte have stayed pretty much the same which would tend to indicate that demand is steady.

As one of British Columbia’s many potential real estate investment neighbourhoods, Queen Charlotte needs to be carefully researched before investing in – and remember to check especially the locations within an area before spending - the old estate agent’s mantra of location, location, location has never lost its importance.

Stock on the market can be an important leading indicator of whether market pressure will be on prices to rise or fall – in Queen Charlotte there is about the same amount of stock than three months ago. This would indicate housing stock pressure remaining the same.
