He says while the market is slowly growing, homes are selling at a reliable rate.

Bolin explains that on average, a home is taking around 67 days to sell, which he says is a lot faster than it was in 2009.

And he says apartments are another hot commodity. He adds the economy will play a vital role in rental availability.

Bolin says Fort St. John has undergone a miraculous recovery, considering it was the last area hit by the recession.

He also predicts mortgage prices will increase, but at a sustainable rate.
