Hmmmmm.... single-family home sales were up 13% over last year in July and condo sales were up 3%... Month over month sales were way up which is not typical in July - https://www.livrealestate.ca/blog/2019/08/real-estate-market-picks-up-in-edmonton-in-july.html

Currently the poor retirees are flooding into PEI. We see home prices rising sharply there. Eventually the rich retirees will move to Alberta rather than stay in B.C. or Ontario and pay a fortune in extra taxes. Like Texas if you're always inside it doesn't matter if its hot or cold.Posted by Tony on Wednesday, August 7th, 2019 at 2:08am
