What to sell in August


August is the best time for buyers and sellers. Summer adventures have spurred new activities and camping trips but have resulted in slimmer wallets! There’s no greater incentive to sell that dusty kayak or camper when the extra cash is going towards an expensive vacation or new kite boarding hobby.

Users in Nanaimo are so jazzed about kayaking that their top three searches are: Kayak (big k), kayak (little k) and kayaks (plural).
