Merritt seeing a spike in non-reidential real estate sales over the summer.

City of Merritt economic development officer Will George says in the third quarter of 2017 there were 71 real estate sales reported, with 28 classified as land only.

"Quite a bit of land only that was selling in the 3rd quarter this year, and I imagine we'll see that land turn into housing and commercial areas."

Residential building permits issued have also increased this year in Merritt, with 77 issued through September, compared to only 36 in all of 2016.
