House prices rise

You will need over a half a million dollars to purchase a home in the Central Okanagan.

That's the average selling price according to the Okanagan Real Estate Board.

At 568 thousand dollars, its a jump of 7.6 percent in the selling price from August of last year.

The only slow down was in the time it takes to sell it.

Last month it took 62 days compared to 47 in August of 2017.
