Also keep abreast of real estate market news for Red Deer and Central Ab by checking in at – Red Deer’s real estate news and information hub.

If you’re planning to buy or sell residential real estate in the near future it’s important to know as much as possible about your local market.

Not only is it important to know what is happening in the market at any given time it’s also important to know what the market has done historically to make predictions. 

Putting weekly real estate news updates together I want to state upfront that a real estate market is local. Also note, when someone says “Canadian real estate market” or even “Alberta real estate market” it almost certainly doesn’t directly apply to your local market. Often you hear people making decisions based on national or international real estate information. Take non-local information with a grain of salt, it may have zero relevance to your local market. And before making any real estate decision call an experienced local Realtor® for advice!

It’s not often we see sale outnumber listings but we did this past week. Strangely there were more homes sold the week prior to Christmas then there were the middle week of December. It will be interesting to compare sold to listing during the Christmas week. We also saw a lot of homes for sale cancel or expire this past week. Let’s home inventory doesn’t flood again this spring or we will see more price decreases.

It’s a buyer favoured market in Central Ab and that indicate it’s a great time to buy. Most buyers will wait to see if prices drop BUT ALL STATS INDICATE THEY WON’T. Keep your eye on my “average price charting” news for Central Alberta >HERE<
