September 2013 Market Watch

Hope everyone had a great long weekend celebrating the end of summer and coming back to reality!


While we were stompin' around at the Stampede, eating 'Deep Fried Butter' and soaking up the sun at the beach, the road crew was hard at work on the Stoney Trail ring road. Thanks to their hard work, the ring road is 70 per cent complete and anticipated to open on schedule on October 1st. View the Southeast Stoney Trail project website at www.sestproject.ca for more information.


Meanwhile the doors to the South Health Campus Hospital is busy with patients eventhough not all their services are opened as of yet. Below is a list of remaining programs and services scheduled to open in 2013:

  • Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (early fall 2013)
  • Obstetrics (early fall 2013)
  • Women's Health Programs (early fall 2013)
  • Additional Pediatrics Clinics (early fall 2013)

For clinics currently opened, please see the SHC Program and Services webpage.


In real estate, we had a pretty busy summer and now that all the kids are back to school and business is back at full speed, the hustle and bustle of the Fall real estate will soon arrive. Inventory is still low and we are expecting a rush of buyers looking for a great property! If you have been thinking of either upgrading to a larger house or something smaller for just the two of you, then now is a good time to buy and sell in this stable market.
