What a year 2022 has been so far. I want to thank so many of you for reaching out this year to discuss your plans and ask questions about your real estate needs. Whether you plan on buying or selling I enjoy the opportunity to meet with you and discuss how I can help. Whether or not now is the right time for you to sell or buy is a free personalized consultation. If you've been hanging onto a rental property waiting for the market to improve you might be wondering "is now the time to sell?"
We are in a "Sellers" market for some property types and price ranges, while the rest of the market appears to be more balanced. So, contrary to headlines and rumours, not every home is flying off the shelf. Red Deer continues to be Single Family Detached market dominant. The translation: We sell more houses, and houses are the preferred or more popular style of housing. Townhouses, half-duplexes, and apartment condos all have their unique nuances within the market. ALL property types are seeing an improvement over previous years with the improved economy and real estate market.
The robust sales volume we saw in 2021 continues in 2022 and, in some cases, is even stronger. The months of inventory on hand (homes for sale) have decreased from 6 months of inventory in 2020 to 2 months in 2022. This is reflected in the ACTIVE listing numbers. At the end of April 2022, there were 455 active listings compared to 598 in 2020.
