There has been a slight uptick in listing activity, but we're still well below last year's inventory levels. Builders are getting busy in Edmonton too - according to CMHC housing starts were up significantly in April. Sales have been below last year's levels in May so far - are we starting to see the market cool off already?

    It sure is an interesting market. I too have heard the builders have been fairly busy.

    Yep, builders are busy keeping existing housing stock (in generic suburban areas at least) from appreciating much if at all.

      You mean housing prices. They are very good at increasing housing stock and very good at keeping prices down. If they are really successful they can glut the market again and cause prices to plunge. God bless those builders.

    The market will figure itself out. At some point the houses will be too far out of the city and people will be willing to shell out more money if it means 1/3 of the commute.
