Comparative Market Analysis

532 Delora Dr. Colwood, BC V9C 0M2 


Site evaluation & Pricing

Based on the sold data, the range of prices for waterfront homes in the area is between $940,000 and $1,260,000 with a median price of $950,000. This suggests that the subject home should be priced within this range, taking into account its specific features and condition.
Looking at the active properties for sale, we can see that the low price is the same as the low price of the sold properties, but the median and high prices are higher at $1,154,500 and $1,390,000 respectively. This suggests that there may be higher-end features or finishes in these homes that justify the higher prices. However, it is important to note that these properties are currently active on the market, which indicates that they have not yet sold and may be overpriced for the current market conditions.
Another factor to consider is the average days on market for the active properties, which is 153 days. This suggests that the market has been slower, or there may be an oversupply of waterfront homes in the area, which could potentially impact the pricing strategy for the subject home.
Finally, the fact that the subject home has some finishing to the interior that will need to be undertaken by the buyers should also be taken into consideration when setting the price. In addition to the needed interior finishing, it is important to note that the exterior waterfront side of the home is overgrown and will require cleaning up. 
Furthermore, the large crack in the concrete wall, although not structural to the home, could put up some red flags for buyers who may be concerned about potential long-term issues or expenses related to the repair of the wall.
Finally, the deck will need to be fixed or repaired, which could also be a deterrent for some buyers who may be looking for a home with a fully functional outdoor space. This could potentially be a turnoff for buyers who are looking for a move-in ready home with well-maintained outdoor areas.
Based on these factors, it is even more important to price the home realistically to account for the needed repairs and potential buyer concerns. it would be reasonable to price the subject home within the range of the sold properties.
