Quick Market update before we close the office for a few days for the Christmas break.
Sales in December have been heating up compared to the last two years. More buyers are taking advantage of their rate holds and the availability of quality Red Deer homes for sale. Sales of MLS® listings in the city of Red Deer are up 28% over 2009! Over the last couple of years 2010 is on pace to exceed 2007 sales levels and possibly double those recorded in December of 2008.
The month to date MLS® sales data for Red Deer looks like:
Just because it's Christmas doesn't mean you have to put your home buying plans on hold. Our agents are still working and ready to show you the home the meets your needs. Start your New Year off on the right foot and get that home you want while you can. While we are below the record setting December of 2006 we are comparable to 2007 which has also recorded 90 sales this month and ahead of 2005 which recorded 82 sales. 90 sales for Red Deer 2010 December so far is a great December for real estate sales activity.
Seeing as it is December 23rd.... Happy Festivus
