As one of British Columbia’s many potential real estate investment neighbourhoods, Sicamous 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 Sicamous there is less stock than three months ago. This would indicate home price pressure increasing as housing stock availability drops.

With a median listing price of $419,000, Sicamous is Canada’s 73th most expensive when ordered by median listing price.

While the median for British Columbia is $349,000 , which means that Sicamous’s median price is $419,000 considerably better than the rest of the province.
