Find Your Place In Canmore Alberta
 

Jessica Stoner: Experienced Canmore REALTOR®.

Hello. I’ve been a Bow Valley resident for 26 years and a Canmore  real estate agent 18 of those. As the former broker/owner of RE/MAX Alpine Realty for 10 years, and a current REALTOR®,  I’ve had a front row seat witnessing the remarkable transformation of Canmore into a world-class resort town and adventure tourism centre. It’s been an absolute pleasure to watch the town develop over the years while participating “front and centre” in the community as a real estate agent, broker, and business owner.

  • Though I work in all areas of Canmore, I specialize in the Three Sisters district, southeast of downtown. Being a resident of the area and having worked in the neighbourhood from it’s onset, I am very familiar with the homes, developers and the market there.
  • I also focus on future and current retirees, and their purchasing or selling of local homes. Many of my clients today are in this stage of their lives. I enjoy helping retirees with the move from, or more often, to Canmore.
  • As a proud member of the Calgary Real Estate Board, I post client properties on the MLS® property listing system. View my listing page.
  • I take pride in keeping my web marketing  skills and online marketing vehicles up-to-date.  My several websites,  online tools and social media channels will benefit you, whether you are a property buyer or seller.

If you are looking for a home, condo or vacation property or future retirement residence in Canmore , I bring a wealth of real estate experience and know-how to the table.  In 2016, I added a real estate partner, Nathan Weima, to ensure my clients have twice as much service!

June 2018-Canmore Real Estate Market Report

The Canmore Real estate market is very active with high buyers demand. Inventory is still on
the low side, though there is a healthy amount of sales taking place. Desirable and
appropriately priced properties tend to sell in the first week on the market, sometimes with
multiple offers, which is not uncommon.
Buyers tend to be quite knowledge about current real estate in the area, and understand
market pricing when considering a purchase. Over priced properties can still remain on the
market for some time, even in this active market with strong buyers demand.
The following factors are affecting the market in Canmore at this time:
1. We have a lot of future retirees buying now. They do not want to wait the 5-7 or so years
to retirement, as they know prices in Canmore are going up and there is a very limited
amount of development in the area.
2. We have increasing tourism, so the tourism and hospitality businesses are growing and
there is an escalating requirement for housing for their staff and employees. (Both to buy
and rent)
3. Increased demand in rentals is encouraging investor buyers.
4. Two new taxes in BC that target both out-of-country buyers, and out-of-province buyers,
as well as new laws that remove some landlord protections, have encouraged investors and
recreational buyers to purchase in Alberta instead of BC. As Canmore is a desirable location
for both recreation and investors, we are seeing an increase in buyers that would otherwise
have purchased in BC.
5. The possibility of hosting the Olympics is attracting a small contingent of speculators, that
think Canmore’s values will increase, if we get the Olympics, or even if we just bid, due
increased international exposure of our stunning scenery.
There is some new construction in Three Sisters and Spring Creek Mountain Village, which
helps satisfy some of the increase in buyers demand, though is not enough to create a
balanced market inventory.
The woes in the oil and gas industry that has affected other real estate markets in Alberta for
the past few years, has not affected the Canmore market. The activity here remains buoyant
and growing.
