Hi Sara, that's a significant week over week drop in the SFH 4 week average.
Did some month-old high dollar sales come off the rolling average this week, or was there a bunch of lower priced sales that just got processed this week?
I see a similar drop happened last January as well, only later in the month, but it was quickly negated. I don't think this loss will be negated nearly as quickly due to the interest rates that will likely be moving even higher in Q1 this year.

Hey Brandon,

Good question. Two sales over $1 million dropped off this week, so that's part of it. It's also just the smaller sample size (fewer sales) creating larger fluctuations in the average at this time of year. It will be interesting to see how long it takes to come back up with the effect of interest rates and net migration - newly released numbers show Alberta's population was up by over 50,000 in Q3. I'll have more details after the annual forecast seminar next week.
