The number of new listings was also normal in November at 1800:


*We adjust the residential sales total for the current month to account for unreported sales. Every month 6% of sales on average are not reported to the Association in time for the monthly report. The following month the numbers are updated to reflect the total sales during the previous month. That means the current month always looks worse compared to previous months. For example, in October 2011 the reported sales totalled 1170 which we adjusted to 1240 for comparison purposes. This month the final number for October sales was 1253 - much closer to my adjustment than what was reported at the time.

    I have said this earlier and say it again: unlike many who predict dooms days here I expect the prices to go up in Edmonton. This is what’s happening in Calgary and typically it won’t take long for Edmonton to follow.

      Prices need to stay put for a while, then rise at inflation rates.

        Agreed. Maybe there should be a moratorium on new condo development?

          Well CMHC predict that new homes being built will stoop lower next year so that’s added demand for lack of new construction, right?
          But maybe it’s driven by that same demand that will be lower, so no resale prices gains.
