Real Estate Prices

By

I really wish that there was a bust of the balloon in S. Alberta.  I find so many people are being priced right out of the market.  What used to be a nice 3 bedroom home that would sell for 150-200,000 is now upwards of 260,000.  Maybe the prices will come down to a more affordable level, but I doubt it.  What we need now is a lot of lower prices town homes or 1/2 duplexes that the starting out families can afford.

be careful what you wish for. When a balloon is deflating, everyone is paralyzed with fear, and no one moves until it's out of air.

Chris,

Looks like what's happening up there took place here three years ago. And now we have a mess in our hands. If household incomes can't keep up with escalating home prices, the market will reverse itself sooner or later.

If they're being priced out of the market, it's only a matter of time before the market reaches it's peak. It's not really a balloon burst unless the values suddenly take a drastic fall and people lose their investment money overnight. But declines are inevitable. That's the nature of the beast =)

Way to go Chris, you made the baloon burst with all your wishing.  Now can you start blowing it back up again please?
