Why Newly Constructed Homes Remain Unsold In Alberta

I recently wrote an edition presenting a statistic that isn't covered very often and it garnered some attention and debate. The statistic I'm referring to is the number of completed but unabsorbed houses. These are houses (single and semi-detached) that are freshly built that don't have a binding, non-conditional agreement made to buy or rent the house.
