There have been two significant home sales in Canmore this December that point to the luxury market rebounding. This segment of the market has been soft for almost a decade and has come back to life in 2017; there have been 12 sales so far this year above $2,000,000 while there were only five in 2016.
The renewed confidence in the upper end of the Canmore real estate market is due to a return of confidence in the Alberta economy and those looking to move to a larger home in the area on a more permanent basis. These sales bode well as we enter 2018 with a very limited number of homes on the market.
