Central Alberta's Commercial Real Estate

August 30, 2015 - Market Update

Posted on September 17, 2015 at 11:20 AM

Sales in August slipped while the number of active listings increased slightly.  It is likely that we are now seeing the first signs of low oil prices in the housing market.  Historically, slower sales and higher inventory levels in Alberta have occurred about a year after a slowdown in the energy industry.  

The Red Deer market has finally moved into balance after giving sellers the advantage of several months.  Extremely low interest rates have been influential in our strong market so far this year.  Higher supply and lower demand will have a calming effect on prices this fall and combined with those low interest rates, will create an ideal environment for buyers who are not affected by the energy industry slowdown.

Opinions on where energy prices are going vary. Some believe that OPEC will reduce production while US oil reserves are shrinking more quickly than previously forecasted.  Others believe the price of oil will remain below $50 for at least another year.  Whatever the case, the world still needs vast amounts of oil every day and energy companies will adapt to their enviroment.  The Alberta economy does rely on a strong energy sector to fuel a "strong" economy, but we will survive this downturn the same as previous ones and come out of it stronger, smarter and more efficient.  That's what Albertans do.

I want to express appreciation to this writer just for bailing me out of this particular situation. Right after scouting through the world wide web and obtaining techniques which are not productive, I figured my life was over. Being alive without the presence of solutions to the issues you've sorted out through your entire post is a serious case, and the ones which may have in a negative way affected my entire career if I had not encountered your site. Your own personal capability and kindness in handling all the things was valuable. I am not sure what I would've done if I hadn't come upon such a point like this. It's possible to at this time look ahead to my future. Thanks so much for the reliable and result oriented guide. I will not hesitate to propose your blog post to anyone who requires tips about this area.
