Why is Fraser Valley’s market peaking in a pandemic? Board offers insight to local community group

The White Rock Rotary Club – with a number of local REALTORS® as members – recently invited Board President, Chris Shields, to speak virtually at its December 1st meeting.  

They were looking for insight on the incredible trends we’re seeing currently in our real estate market. Armed with information from multiple sources – not the least of which is your MLS® data and market intelligence from BCREA – Chris covered a lot of ground in less than 20 minutes.

He provided: a market preview update for November; an explanation of why our local market is so active during a world-wide pandemic; what is unique to our region and why our future looks so bright; and, how the real estate industry – as a non-health essential service – adapted so quickly to BC’s safety guidelines to continue to allow consumers to safely and efficiently continue to invest in their most important asset, their home.

The information is valuable to anyone interested in the Fraser Valley and the future of real estate here.

The Club was kind enough to share a link to the recording.


The presentation lasts just over 16 minutes, followed by a Q & A.
