Sheldon and I attended a real estate conference in San Francisco this week, that is heavily focused on technology and marketing. We're coming home with our heads full of new ideas. Unfortunately that also means we didn't have much time for blogging this week. Anyway, here is our update...

The average price has clearly peaked for 2013, and is now on its seasonal path down. As we've already discussed, the average condo price was heavily boosted by an increase in luxury sales, and it is now starting to return to more normal levels.

    Looking forward to your new ideas. I hope they are more on the new technology side then new marketing. :)

    Canadian home sales down 0.6 per cent from year ago, prices up 4.8 per cent. Despite the drop in sales from June 2012, the national average sale price last month was up 4.8 per cent from a year ago, rising to $386,585.

    Canadian real estate stats are completely useless

    Calgary realtors see ‘crazy’ rush of home buyers after flood link to edmontonjournal.com via @edmontonjournal

      I’m seeing fewer sales and fewer listings. Usually after a flood property values fall. Unless mortgage rates decline we’ll see lower prices and lower sales. That won’t happen until Ben Bernanke is out of office this January. Come January the *real* truth about the state of the economy in America will be told and interest rates will plunge big time!

        um, U.S, Interest Rate has been 0.25% since 2010, and Canadian interest rate has been 1.0% since 2010. Not much room to “plunge”.

      It must be true if Calgary realtors said so.

        Yeah, all those displaced residents must have been camping and waiting for the price to fall.

          Ya all those displaced residents must have each had another mil sitting around collecting dust so why not all rush out and buy another house while there flooded house’s are being reno ‘d … Please, lol

    I had a house fire in December and very soon after we purchased a little condo. My house has not been touched by the restoration company my insurance hired for over 2 months. And now because of the floods my house is way down on the priority list. We are not well off, so yeah, it is likely people are picking up a second, or third property, whatever it may be!

      I don’t know about you but every younger person I know is mortgaged to the hilt and any house equity they may have is pulled out to reno the place or pay off the credit cards. There’s no extra money laying around.

        Those affected by the Calgary flood are not the typical younger person you know.

        You don’t even need to go to Calgary to find out. Here in Edmonton, take a walk on some south side river facing streets. Most residents are old people with their mortgage paid out.

    What you are missing is that those who live in multi million houses typically have more money in other places than in their house. I know at least a few here that fall in this category.
