June Newsletter:

Hello everyone. Local businesses have re-opened, isn't that awesome! 

BC entered the re-opening phase only last month. New ways of doing business in Real Estate slowly taking its form, and Kamloops REALTORS® were seen particularly busy last month. They were attending courses online, conducting live tours, and doing everything in their capacity to complete a transaction in these testing times. Have a look at what's happened in June:

1. Market stats released in a new format:

Following much deliberation, KADREA released May 2020 stats in a fresh format. There were 3 components to this -

a. A sharable social media tile that captured 'Single Family' sales figures in Kamloops & District.
b. KADREA monthly stats press release.
c. CREA stats for Kamloops & District region.

You can access these files on the KADREA Market Stats page:

Please note: June stats will be released on the 4th of July

The month of June saw two accredited PDP courses held online and both these courses recorded good numbers. Looking at the way these courses were conducted, it can be said that online courses are here to stay. Courses will be available in different media types like audiobooks, recorded video, or as webinars.
