Blackfalds Market Update February 1, 2021

Is Covid part of the recipe for a strong real estate market?  It appears so, with sales continuing to exceed pre-Covid numbers from last January across most central Alberta markets.  There is no doubt there are other ingredients, including the lowest interest rates in history, but the market has been stronger since the relaxations came into effect after the first wave last June.  And the latest restrictions on activity haven’t stopped people from buying and selling homes.

Central Alberta sales were up 50% in January 2021 compared to January 2020 (before the pandemic began) and when the future outlook was considerably rosier than it is today.  Red Deer sales were up 45% in January and the only central Alberta markets that are down were Lacombe and Rocky Mountain House and only slightly. 

“We’re going to put our house on the market in the spring” is a phrase we often hear, and in normal times it’s a reasonable decision. Spring is typically the busiest home buying time of the year.   But, these aren’t “normal times”.  Right now supply is low and demand is strong which means this is the right time to put your house on the market, especially if it’s going to be priced under $500,000 in the larger markets and under $300,000 in the smaller markets.  Call your local RE/MAX Associate for details about your market.
