I missed posting a few weeks in December but if you’d like a specific report for any given time period in 2020 please email me and let me know –

Keep on top of the Central Ab and Red Deer market news by checking in at – Red Deer’s real estate news, stats and information hub.

Know your market

If you’re planning to buy or sell residential real estate now or in the future, it’s important to know your local market as much as possible. That’s why each week at we post the Red Deer Real Estate market report comparing sales to listings. It’s important to compare home sales to home listings to help understand the market.

Your market is local

Before planning a real estate transaction in Red Deer it’s important to understand that your real estate market is local. Keep in mind, when someone references the “Canadian real estate market” or even the “Alberta real estate market” it doesn’t necessarily apply to your local market. Too many real estate decisions are based on national real estate information but national stats need to be taken lightly because they may have zero relevance to your local market.

The Christmas week is always unpredictable and I’m surprised to see so many new listings. However, there were a lot of expired listings and with sales as active as they are it’s a good time to try and sell.

Why not get cash-back buying your next home?

when too many homes are listed for sale it has a negative impact on pricing. Keep in mind, if you list your house to sell just “testing the market” you will essentially reduce prices as a whole and negatively impact your possible results. The more listings there are (competition), the lower prices will go. Supply and demand – too much supply negatively impacts prices.

Right now is a seller favoured market in Central Ab and that indicates price may begin to increase. If you’re a buyer waiting for prices to drop they won’t in the near future. If you’ve waited, the low price point has likely passed but if prices continue upward, now is a low point.
