The Chinese are gobbling up everything that's being built. Everything sells out the first day the sales office opens for any new project. This will drive Canadian home prices skyward in 2021. My guess is prices Canada wide will rise 15 percent in 2021.Posted by Tony on Thursday, January 7th, 2021 at 7:34pm
They were buying up a lot in Toronto and Vancouver, I'm not sure if that is still going on there or not, but we have not seen that trend in Edmonton.Posted by Sara MacLennan on Thursday, January 7th, 2021 at 7:46pm
Looks like a strong market in Edmonton! Prices are up, as are sales. I think as we recover from Covid, we'll see some strong price jumps later this year, and 2022 as interest rates will stay low.Posted by Tom on Friday, January 8th, 2021 at 6:29am
The NDP are currently ahead in the polls in Alberta. Doesn't bode well for our future.Posted by GM on Saturday, January 9th, 2021 at 3:01am
Edmonton prices are cheap compared to many other markets in Canada and it's a buyers market right now. The interest rates are at an all time low (you can get 5-year fixed at 1.49%). The only negative point is the economic outlook isn't good (jobs!!). Once that turns around (and I suspect it will start happening in about 2-3 years) prices will be going up. Companies are considering investment in Hydrogen and with the price of carbon tax (federal) increasing multiple fold it only makes it more viable. Alberta has among the cheapest sources of hydrogen!Posted by A commong guy on Saturday, January 9th, 2021 at 4:21am
They have to destroy the U.S. dollar to save the U.S. banks, save the real estate market and to bankrupt all the retirees due to shortfalls in the social security system. This will keep pushing up the price of lumber and home prices in America.Posted by Tony on Saturday, January 9th, 2021 at 11:49pm

Everything sells out the first day the sales office opens for new projects. This is what will drive prices skyward in 2021 in Canada. The entire golden horseshoe follows whatever Richmond Hill, Markham, Unionville and Stouffville does.
Bring on inflation!Posted by GM on Tuesday, January 12th, 2021 at 5:43am
