Weekly real estate market update Oct 24th - Oct 30th

Blake King's real estate update for Red Deer
Also keep your eye on more Red Deer real estate market news and info by checking into www.HomeScope.ca - Red Deer's real estate new 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 the market you're buying in.

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 some predictions. 

As I start to put these weekly real estate updates together I want to state for the record that a real estate market is local. And note, when someone says "Canadian real estate market" or even "Alberta real estate market" it almost certainly doesn't apply to your local market. Often you hear people making decision or giving advice based on a provincial or national market statistic. Take that information with a grain of salt, it may have practically zero rellevence.

Good news - single family detached home listed are still balancing nicely with numbers sold! This, if it continues, will be a good adjustment to the inventory levels. However, condominiums listed greatly outnumbers condo sales

Hopefully if sellers are less "listing crazy" and plan instead to wait for the market to do better we'll see a more balanced market. A balanced market will cause normal price increases which is healthy.  See Central Alberta 'for sale' inventory rates here. The more homes for sale (supply), combined with lower than average sales currently (demand), prices will decrease.
