Prince George, B.C.- The British Columbia Real Estate Association (BCREA) released its Housing Forecast Update for the first quarter of 2010 today.
BC Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) residential sales in the Northern region, which includes Prince George, are expected to increase by 8 % this year, before slowing to a further 3% in growth in 2011.
The forecast also predicts the average price of a home in the Northern Real estate region will increase by 2% this year, to $216,000, and a further 3% in 2011 to $222 thousand.
Higher home prices and rising mortgage interest rates will provide a constraint on home sales next year.
