At Century 21 Advantage we strive to provide education and tools for our agents to allow them to serve their clients easier, quicker, and more efficiently overall. With our switch to Pillarnine Matrix, we are providing a series of short videos to assist our team.

In this video, we go over how to personalize the Hotsheet in the Matrix Pillarnine platform for agents. Customizing the hot sheets to areas that they work in versus viewing everything in all areas.

2020 Real Estate in Red Deer.

The Red Deer real estate market is influenced by the local economy, employment and income.  As job growth occurs, increased jobs, and growth in wages happens historically we've experienced dramatic, and consistent growth in real estate prices and development.

Current market trends are influenced by the global COVID-19 pandemic, Global Oil surpluses and record low prices for our commodities.  We expect the local real estate market to reflect these changes throughout the 2020 year.  Below you'll find some snapshots of our local real estate market for Red Deer MLS® sales and listings of residential homes.

Should you have any questions on how these numbers and data may influence your home please feel free to reach out to

If you've been wondering if now is a good time to buy or sell, we strive to answer the following question,   "Have we turned the corner from a Buyers Market to a Balanced?"

Of course, as a company where we get paid by putting real estate deals together, we're certainly going to say yes to both of those questions.  However, we're also going to give you some market data to assist you in making that decision for you.  The other disclaimers are the data we are using is MLS® data from the Central Alberta REALTORS® Association.

If you're buying a home in Red Deer, or any community, you're probably concerned with getting the best price possible and want assurance that your investment will go up not down.

Some market metrics we're looking at are Sales

While it looks more like winter out there lately in Red Deer and Central Alberta it is still "fall".  The kids all went back to school so the summer rush to get settled is over, so what's happening out there in the Red Deer Real Estate Market?

Well, sales slowed down a little.  The winter weather came early and when that happens, fewer people feel like looking at homes.  We tend to shift to "stay warm and hibernate mode".

So the dent or decline in available listings didn't really occur.  Active listing inventory is still higher than in recent years.  If you're buying today, there are plenty of homes to choose from.  Buyers today continue to have the luxury of options, and with that comes an improved negotiating position.
