Home prices in Calgary are overvalued by 15 to 20 per cent, “seriously unaffordable,” and set to start falling, says a nationally known economic and housing market commentator.

“We’re at the moment of crisis. In other words, the moment when the market will turn from being essentially a sellers’ market into one that’s flat and then eventually into one that’s a buyers’ market,” said Turner, who is appearing at the Airport Radisson at 7 p.m.
