Reading The Edmonton Journal on my ipad this morning there were no fewer than 16 articles about our warming economy and expected labour shortages. I don't know if all those articles were in the print edition, but there is certainly a feeling that we are going to buck the international trend for the next while. There is always a lag between job growth and real estate market growth, so it may take awhile to see any affects on our real estate market. In addition, numbers released yesterday by CMHC show home builders in the greater Edmonton area are quite busy adding new inventory which will further increase housing supply.
Have a great weekend!
