red deer real estate market: Rise up, Rise Up, Real estate is rising? - 02/12/09 09:50 PM
Real Estate Activity is on the rise! Talk to a few Realtors and you and the response will be that there is in fact more action in the market place. The numbers also reflect that as noted above. There was an increase in listings as well as sales. The weather on the weekend was fantastic. That may have something to do with the amount of traffic I witnessed at 38 Overand Place. I made arrangements to stop in at 1:30 prior to the open house to shoot some video. Well Ken Devoe was there and ready and had his signs up … (0 comments)

red deer real estate market: Look at last week in Red Deer real estate - 02/06/09 01:30 PM
Here are the weekly numbers: The blue shaded areas represent homes that did not sell and are still available. We like to see that gap closer if you are selling. The bigger the gap the stronger the "buyers" market. You can see that sales were sluggish to start January 2009. Not to surprising given the doom and gloom in the air. Afterwards we had President Obama inauguration followed by the great Canadian Budget Coalition stand off that has now been resolved. We'll keep you informed.

red deer real estate market: 2009 Real Estate Market... is 2009 the year to buy real estate? - 01/24/09 04:07 AM
My earlier blog post I asked you 4 questions and to email me your thoughts.
Where do you see house prices going long term? How long do you plane to live in that house? Should you wait? Can you afford to wait to buy based on past price trends? In follow up I received comments that got me thinking some more about the questions and the responses. The response was a definitive "YES" real estate values will go up long term, but overall people are apprehensive about doing so in a "down" market.
There are different factors influencing your … (0 comments)

The numbers are in and we've been reviewing the 2008 Red Deer real estate market quite a bit here at Century 21 Advantage.
