On April 15, the Kamloops and District Real Estate Association (KADREA) and the Kootenay Association of REALTORS® (KAR) became the first real estate boards in British Columbia to display historical sold prices on REALTOR.ca.
Consumers, boards and members have been asking to see historical sold data on REALTOR.ca for some time. Having sold data helps CREA ensure it continues to offer leading-edge services on REALTOR.ca, especially as competing real estate portals attempt to gain traction with Canadian consumers.
“KADREA and KAR continue to ensure REALTORS® are equipped to match the needs and wants of their consumers,” said KADREA President Wendy Runge. KAR President Tyler Hancock echoed the sentiment, “This is another example of incredible Board collaboration and empowering the consumer.”
Currently, eight boards and associations have cleared regulatory hurdles and are displaying sold data on REALTOR.ca. The Nova Scotia Association of REALTORS® (NSAR) became the first to do so in January of 2019, followed closely by New Brunswick.
Boards and associations that are interested in displaying historical sold prices on REALTOR.ca can contact CREA for opt-in information.
