Drumheller housing market weathers storm

Despite naysayer predictions, the Drumheller real estate market continues to be strong.
The Drumheller/Brooks Real Estate Board released its June numbers and year to date totals. While there is an obvious slow down compared to the boom of just over a year ago, it is not as drastic as most would have anticipated.
“I think we had a little bit of a lull, but overall I think the market appears to be quite strong,” said Gary Chambers of Century 21 Power Realty. “Transactions are barely down and our numbers, while they are not going up by double digits, the fact that we are still going up while a lot of markets are stagnating, shows that it is still pretty healthy.”
