Want a cheaply priced house? Then at $160,000 this month, Carbon, Alberta is somewhere that you should look at price wise.

Carbon’s most common listing this month is 3 bedroom properties, less than province’s most common offering of 4 bedrooms.

Alberta has the fourth most amount of properties available to property investors, with Carbon having 183th most in the province, out of a total of 339.

Is Carbon a good investment prospect? It’s never a perfect science, but the data we have given us a number of indicators.

Stock on the market can be an important leading indicator of whether market pressure will be on prices to rise or fall – in Carbon there is less stock than three months ago. This would indicate home price pressure increasing as housing stock availability drops.

Can we guarantee how well Carbon is going to do next year? No, but we can look at the data we have and use it as a starting point before doing research.

The amount of homes for sale in neighbourhood has stayed the same over the last three months – this means that supply and demand economics would mean that the pressure on house prices has also remained constant.
