Edmonton Real Estate Trends point to the Cool of the Season – November 2015

Tuesday, November 10th, 2015

Hi there Folks,

As we gather with our loved ones at Remembrance Day, Canadians are reminded of the sacrifices our courageous men and women made for the entire country and our people.  Our thoughts turn to protection of our fathers, brothers, sisters and mothers and we are reminded that life whispers to us to live it in freedom, to live with introspection and to protect those around us.  We are reminded of the months ahead, of the changes that are necessary to make now to get us safely through the winter without harm.  The grass crunches underfoot with the morning frost, the last of the leaves gently fall and we are reminded to source out our winter tires.  Just as the cool of the season keep dropping, so do the number of listings and we are left in a calm and stable market here in Edmonton.

If you, your friends or family are looking to buy or sell real estate, please keep me in mind.  Your referral is the best compliment I can receive.  Check out what is going on in the Edmonton Real Estate Market through the following indicators:
