Canmore Real Estate Newsletter July 2019   



Jan 1st to June 30th 2019 had 296 sales which is the 4th best of all time only trailing 2006 by 1 sale at 297, 2008 was 321 and 2017 was the top 1st half ever at 325. 

In 2005 Canmore had a permanent population of 11,422 with 3,790 non permanent population and 5,147 total dwelling units.
In 2014 Canmore had a permanent population of 13,077 with 3,890 non permanent population and 7,023 total dwelling units.

In 2016 Census Canada did the census and noted that Canmore had a permanent population of 13,992 with 7,963 total dwelling units but our Active listings on July 1st 2005 was 292, July 2015 we had 281 , 2016 258, and July 1st 2019 we had 255 showing that even with the increase in population and number of dwelling units in Canmore the active listing inventory remains within historical averages.   We have seen a pick up in interest in the higher end of our market through June and into July which has been slower, could this a result of a Provincial government change and Pipeline announcement or feeling the momentum that the Calgary market has had recently. Typically the 2nd half of the year trails the 1st half in sales volume by 7-9%.  We are still seeing good strength from local buyers, interest rates have softened a bit helping with affordability marginally plus we are still seeing more baby boomers looking here to call Canmore home either now or the next 2 – 5 years.   Have a great Summer!!
In September we will explore the Commercial Real Estate market in the Bow Valley which we will do 3 to 4 times a year going forward.

Alberta’s Manufacturing Sales on the Rise

ATB Financial's Economics & Research Team     July 18, 2019

Manufacturing sales in Alberta increased five months in a row to start 2019. Although this does not take into account the effects of inflation, seasonally-adjusted sales in May reached a record of $7 billion, rising by 2.2 per cent compared to April. On a year-over-year basis, sales were up an impressive 11.0 per cent.
Nationally, sales were up 1.6 per cent in May and by 3.0 per cent year-over-year. Alberta accounted for 11.9 per cent of Canada’s manufacturing sales in May.
The two largest manufacturing sub-sectors in Alberta—petroleum and coal product manufacturing and chemicals—both performed well in May, growing by 3.8 per cent and 7.0 per cent, respectively. Primary metal manufacturing posted the highest monthly increase at 18.7 per cent but was down 2.1 per cent compared to the previous May.
Machinery manufacturing (-7.0 per cent), food manufacturing (-1.9 per cent), printing (-1.5 per cent) and wood product manufacturing (-0.6 per cent) were all down in May. Wood product sales were down the most on a year-over-year basis at -25.9 per cent.
The overall growth in manufacturing sales is a welcome sign, especially given the lukewarm pace of economic growth forecast for Alberta this year.
