September Housing Stats (Crossfield AB)
Crossfield's average days on market rose this month 11 days, median increased, sales were down 3 and listings are up 1.
"Calgary's economy continues to struggle with unemployment, which rose again last month to over eight per cent. Concerns in the employment market, higher lending rates and shaken confidence are weighing on housing demand," said CREB® chief economist Ann-Marie Lurie.
"At the same time, supply levels continue to remain high, resulting in persistent oversupply and price declines."
"This is the new normal of Calgary's real estate," said CREB® president Tom Westcott.
"Some potential buyers may want to take advantage of the market conditions, but they face difficulties selling their existing home based on their expectations. This prevents them from purchasing something else."
