May Market Stats

Here is a summary of the Victoria market stats for May 2024. If you would like to see a more detailed summary or have any questions about this, reach out!



In an announcement this morning, The Bank of Canada has lowered its key interest rate to 4.75 per cent, marking the bank’s first rate cut since March 2020.
This is a reduction of 25 basis points (down by 0.25%). This holds out the hope of the beginning of a downward trend.

This should make homeownership more affordable. Lower rates mean lower monthly mortgage payments, allowing a buyer to maximize their investment in a new home. It can also be beneficial to sellers, as it could bring more buyers to the table.

If you have any questions about this, reach out to us!


Open House this Weekend

Hi everyone,

You are invited to our open house this weekend, Sun June 2nd from 1-3pm at 558 Caleb Pike Rd.

This beautiful Cape Cod style 3-bed, 3-bath home is located on a magical wooded one-acre property, yet just a 10 minute drive to all amenities.

Perfect family home! Perfect home for folks who want to feel like they are living in their own private oasis, but with the convenience of being close to stores, etc.

Come by and check it out. Feel free to pass this info on to others!


Just sold!

Huge congratulations to our seller, who sold her beautiful 4-bed, 3-bath family home over asking price, with multiple offers received just after listing!

We wish her the best for what comes next. We know the new owners will love this home! So happy for everyone involved!

Reach out to us if you have any questions about this sale. We are always happy to chat real estate 😊


Owl in the City

This month we have seen a great horned owl hanging out in the tree in front of our house several times. It is a bit hard to see in the photo, but these birds are very large and so, so magestic!

Quite a sight to behold!

We hope she isn't too lost in the middle of Victoria and that she is doing well!


Oak Bay Lawn Bowing Club’s 70th Anniversary Launch Event!

On Saturday, Rosemarie attended the Oak Bay Lawn Bowling Club's summer launch and 70th anniversary event!

It was a wonderful time, with guest appearance from Laurel Collins, Victoria MP, and Hazel Braithwaite, Oak Bay councilor, delicious cake, lovely mingling, and, of course, lawn bowling.

Rosemarie has been bowling with this club for a few years now and loves spending time with great folks and honing her skills.

If you are interested in learning about lawn bowling and perhaps trying it out yourself, feel free to reach out to Rosemarie!
