Rising Lending rates affect markets across the country, slowing interest of buyers.

Hi, I’m The Flying REALTOR®

Randy Rauck, Licensed Real Estate Agent

Welcome to North Okanagan, BC!

I really enjoy helping people market, sell, and find properties in the Okanagan Valley, especially beachfront properties.  Of course, I also enjoy flying hang gliders, ultralight aircraft, airplanes, and amphibious float planes and playing music for fun!

Current Market

This year has been very busy with people relocating to more rural areas from the lower mainland, Alberta, and other provinces. Recently, with the change in interest rates and uncertainty in the markets and the world, sales and interest has slowed down. 

Read my September newsletter for some interesting stats from the North Okanagan.  

There’s still a shortage of inventory however in many property types. If you’re interested in the Okanagan lifestyle, recreational property, or would like to sell, please contact me for the latest information and market analysis.  If you’re just wanting to learn more generally about the local market, follow this link to read my newsletter and subscribe to receive them in future.

If you’re relocating in to local market, such as Vernon, Lumby, Cherryville, Lavington, Coldstream etc, I can set you up to receive auto-emails to see properties as soon as they come on the market.  Then just call me to view.

Selling your property

I’ve been proud to work with home sellers this year with rural, farms, beachfront, river front, rural and homes in communities up and down the valley.  If you’re thinking of selling give me a call to discuss a marketing strategy, photo/drone options, timing and listing price. I look forward to hearing from you.  It’s good to plan ahead even if you’re looking at listing in the Fall after summer holidays. I can give  you some tips on what people are looking for to make your property even more attractive to buyers. 

About the Okanagan

The Okanagan basin an area known for its lakeshore communities and retirement lifestyle, as well as its tourist and recreation-based economy. You’ll find many vineyards here, as well as people enjoying hiking, skiing, boating, watersports, paragliding, an hang gliding, I sport I’ve enjoyed here since the mid-70s . 

Though the Okanagan is known for its dry landscapes and sunny climates, the northern third has more precipitation and is often a bit cooler than the south..
