What happened in the Canmore real estate market in October 2017?

As is normally the case, real estate sales stayed strong into the fall season and October marks the first month this year where the number of properties sold exceeds the number sold in 2016.  Every other month so far this year has produced fewer sales than the previous year but 58 homes sold this past month which, represents roughly 9% more than the 53 properties that traded in October 2016.  Sales of luxury properties continued to gain momentum this month with 2 sales of properties valued at more than $2 million.
