That's a wrap on 2019 and after an interesting year full of ups and downs, we went out with some great momentum. 


The sales in December were up across the Province by 7.56% compared to December 2018 which capped off the year with a -0.23% drop in sales for the year in Alberta.  The listing inventory also dropped across the Province by -4.30% which helped bring the inventory levels into balanced market territory of 4.08 months.  


Like much of 2019, we ended the year with the Good, the Bad and the Ugly.  The good news is that the markets in and around the Calgary Real Estate Board, the Edmonton board, and South Central Alberta all had an uptick in sales for the year. The Calgary Region saw an uptick of 1.97% year over year in sales, Edmonton had +0.21% and South Central enjoyed an uptick of 12.32% in sales. Each of these markets also saw a decrease in listings which continue to help balance those markets. Another shining point is that the Province has had an increased net migration through 2019 as Alberta has regained its appeal for Canadians to move here from other Provinces.


The bad, isn't actually bad...yet. While sales kept pace in Lethbridge and Medicine Hat Regions, their listing inventory continued to climb. If sales do not experience a fast uptick in 2020, these markets could have corrections in the near future. Keeping an eye on inventory levels, and pricing homes with an appealing price for buyers will be an important aspect over the next couple of months. In other not so bad news, we saw a significant drop in the showing activity for the month of December but still managed to have 3,299 showings requested through the Showing Time system. This drop in listing activity is very normal through the month of December and we expect the showing activity to pick up quickly in January.

While the showing activity has continued to decrease through November and December, approximately 50% of the showings continue to occur in the $300,000 - $500,000 price range.  In November we had over 4,800 showings which helps explain the uptick of 8.5% in sales that we experienced in the first week of December. Most interestingly is that the $700,000 + markets have had the least amount of fluctuations in showings, and actually saw a modest increase of showings the week of Dec 2 - 9 over the week prior.

The long debate of Variable vs. Fixed.  We have some answers that may hep you and your clients decided which option is best.

 

Variable vs. Fixed is Two Bets

 

#1 Interest expense – Currently there is a 1% difference between variable and fixed.  As long as it takes Bank of Canada to move up .25% at a time you have saved the money.  Bank of Canada would have to increase 9+ times.

#2 Payout Exposure – In a 5 year fixed with ever Charter Bank and Credit Union the Penalty Math is approx. 4.5% penalty on the mortgage.  So on a $400,000 mortgage that costs the client $18,000.  6 out of 10 Canadians break their mortgage.  A Variable Penalty works out to .5% of the penalty.

 

Difference = $16,000

 

Just on the payout penalty alone we have been able to save them $16,000 in penalty charges with this option.  Plus any money they would have saved while making payments at the lower interest rate.  This is very important for you the realtor.  Say you have a client who wants to sell their property and find a new one.  But the new property wont work for porting  mortgage (maybe it is out of province, a different type of property or many other scenarios) it could kill the deal for you if the client has a $18,000 penalty vs. a $2000.00 penalty.  This is important information for the client to understand and the banks aren’t going to share this with you because it cuts into their products.  I will be sure to explain it so they understand the risks and the rewards.

 

5 year variable rate is at Prime -.1.00%

5 year fixed is 3.44%
