The recent court decision against the Transmountain Pipeline has re-raised frustration levels & likely a whole lot of anger from many Albertans. It's a significant blow not only to the province, it's a direct punch in the face to the entire country.
As for Sylvan Lake real estate the number of sales has increased nicely for the month of August. However, the number of listings seems to also be on the rise, likely those trying to sell during the final rush after the summer months. Real estate activity seems to be rising as children return to school & the weather has began to cool. Families looking for larger homes may now have the time to get out there, find their new homes & write some offers. Sellers who have been patiently waiting all summer can expect some traffic; & if priced correctly, move on to bigger & better!
