The new year, like the last, has brought no shortage of challenges.
The good news is that there are positive signs slowly taking hold.
THE REAL ESTATE MARKET- WHAT BUYERS & SELLERS NEED TO KNOW
From an Alberta real estate perspective, the market continues to be quite hot, with it continuing to be a seller's market.
With home prices having stabilized and the relatively low inventory on the market means that home buyers are snapping up available single-family homes in great numbers.

Consumer needs are also evolving, with many buyers and potential buyers spending more time (working) at home.
To that end, space for a home office, entertainment, and space that can accommodate family and extended family in the long-term.
As these people continue to age and their employment situation evolves, the necessity to be close to their "job" is not as great an issue. Amenity-rich neighbourhoods with a growable/changeable living space are advantageous for these reasons.
Likewise, finding a Realtor that can assist you in identifying needs and locating homes that meet the buyer's criteria has never been more important.
For Sellers, the value of a real estate expert in your corner with strong negotiation skills is also extremely advantageous.
