Alberta housing market to moderate this year

According to the Alberta Economic Outlook Q1 2015 report, prepared by the ATB Financial Economics and Research group (ATB), housing investments in Alberta are projected to remain flat or slightly lower in 2015, despite record-setting levels of residential building permits in Q3 2014. Factors affecting this prediction include slower population growth, increased caution on the part of developers and home buyers, heightened investor nervousness, and a softer job and wage market.
