As every year I attended the housing forecast seminar. This year the presenters where Mayors from the surrounding counties it seemed that their primary concern was the possible annexation of land by Edmonton To this here seemed to be little consensus on what is best for each, and who would benefit.
As always the meat of the presentation was on the market and the outlook for the next year, on this there was consensus. 2014 looks to be a good year in the real Estate market while there is some scaling back in growth pridicted in the City of Edmonton growth will remain above the national average. Both the region and Alberta posting very little change in growth rate from 2013 to 2014. Employment growth in Edmonton is the highest in the country and is expected to remain so through 2014 with Professional, technical, scientific services and manufacturing leading the way.
The realtors association of Edmonton is predicting a rise in both condo and single family home prices.
