Terry Paranych and Michael Kryton recently discussed the Alberta and Edmonton commercial real estate market, how foreign investment in our Province is on the rise, and what the impact of this growing overseas interest could be.

Alberta has a great reputation internationally among investors: we’re seen to have a growing commercial and industrial economy, and also to be a great place to raise a family and lay down roots. As a result of this and Canada’s multicultural makeup that encourages immigration, money is flowing into the country from all over the world, including from China, Pakistan, India and Japan. Much of that capital is being invested in the real estate market, both into commercial real estate and into multi-family residential

The market remained fairly steady, however, the weather does tend to affect the quantities of home sellers and buyers that are looking to make deals. That being said, it also ensures that home sellers will get better quality buyer’s during the cold snaps – as the home buyer’s that are serious will continue to search for a home despite weather conditions.

According to the Edmonton Real Estate Board:

“According to the REALTORS® Association of Edmonton the average price of housing increased slightly in January as compared to the previous month. The
