Housing prices in northern B.C. increase for third consecutive year

Despite having house prices that average in cost of $375,000 according to the BCNRED, Fort St. John is said to remain affordable for families as median incomes are higher than other northern communities at $88,000. The average median outcome in the rest of northern B.C. is listed as $66,000.

While housing costs have increased over the last three years, affordability in Williams Lake has improved. The improvement comes from falling housing prices. The news isn’t as good for Mackenzie and Kitimat as housing prices have increased. Affordability indicators for Prince George, Quesnel, and Prince Rupert have remained relatively flat.

Members of the BCNREB serve the real estate needs of the communities from Fort Nelson in the north to 100 Mile House in the south.
