At this time of year, we all stop and reflect as to what has transpired over the past 365 days and prepare for yet another tour around our Sun. New Year’s resolutions will once again be made and for the most part will be forgotten in 6 weeks or less. My only resolution I have ever made was on Dec 10, 1985 and that was to exercise on a continuous basis. Although it has been difficult at times, I have kept going to this very day.
As for predictions for the coming year, I have only one. 2013 will be the year that the first internet powered real estate boom will begin to take effect in Alberta. It will be unlike anything the world has ever seen because the web will be a fundamental shaping not only the economic and political landscape of the province, but also Canada. The Facebook and Twitter resources on this site will be followed by many worldwide and it will serve to attract an enormous influx of people, resources and investment capital in a way that will only further accelerate the economic advantage of the province over the rest of North America.
Sometime during 2013, I will be adding one more municipality which lies outside Canada to the group of cities receiving news coverage. Its purpose will serve to accelerate the generation of tens of thousands of real estate transactions in Alberta and I will have more to say on this topic at a later date.
So there you have it. My only prediction for 2013 and a year from now, you alone will decide if I am correct or not.
Happy New Year!!
