Calgary Real Estate Market Stats October 2011

Sales to date are up about 8% over the last 10 months from sales the same period lat year. The biggest increases (over 61% ) were seen in more established communities. Nearly half of the communities recorded average price increases. We can contribute the increase in sales to the boost in job creation we have seen throughout the year. Buyers are of course taking their time to find the right home but are generally feeling more confidence in the Calgary real estate market. A slight increase in average price of only 2% could also be skewed a bit by some higher end homes being sold and bringing the average price up. Generally speaking prices are quite balanced and sellers need to be realistic now more than ever when pricing their homes for sale because buyers have a good selection of choice.

What Past Clients Have Said

  I just happened to stumble upon Crystal's website when searching Calgary homes at a time when I was thinking of moving back to the city from my 19 year stint in "Silicon Valley", CA. I was just trying to get a feel for the Calgary real estate market and hadn't yet decided whether or not to move back. I asked Crystal's advice/experience with buying property with a rental suite in the basement to help with mortgage payments, and even though I was very clear that I hadn't yet decided to move back to Calgary, she still took the time to fill me in over e-mail in the pros and cons of purchasing such properties. I appreciated that she never "hounded" me during that month to find out whether or not I was going to be moving back (and obtain my business) -- she only responded when I had specific questions for her. Once I decided to make the move back to Calgary, I knew that Crystal was the realtor I wanted to work with. I found a house listed on her site and sent her (and my sister) to view it for me and get their thorough evaluation. She also took video of the house which certainly helped me to get a better feel for what I'd be purchasing! She was instrumental in coming up with a strategic and cunning plan to win over another (unexpected) bid for the house of my dreams, and then further negotiate a reduced price for me afterwards. Crystal also set me up with a fantastic home inspector (Stirling Davidson) and has followed up with him for me after I moved in to assist me with some minor "issues" I came across -- all part of his service. Such an awesome member of her team! Crystal was a fabulous and very professional representative for me in the purchase of my new, wonderful home in Mount Pleasant and I would recommend her in a heartbeat...
