Sept 2017 sales dip in an otherwise better year for Calgary real estate

calgary-real-estate-fall

We just got the stats for September 2017 and sales slipped a little in Calgary real estate last month.  The good news is that we had some good numbers in the first six months of 2017 and this activity managed to boost our year-to-date average up by 7% over 2016.  It’s still 11% under those long-term averages, and I agree with the Calgary Real Estate Board's take on the market – with more listings coming in and sales slowing in this last quarter of the year, we’re going to have to work hard to maintain our optimism!

There was a bump in inventory last month – we were up by 6,861 units – with attached properties and apartment condos setting a record for the highest inventory ever.  That...

Luxury Calgary real estate listings slowly recovering

Fall forecast is for moderate sales and stabilizing prices

I wouldn’t say that million-dollar-plus home buyers are lining up to snap up some premiere Calgary real estate listings, but they’re certainly expressing some sincere interest.

A forecast by one of Canada’s luxury real estate firms has issued some promising statistics though.  Over the summer, there were 112 luxury homes featured in Calgary real estate listings for over $1 million that sold to some pretty special buyers.  Single-family home sales in this sector and some fairly opulent attached home sales (think Altadore or West Hillhurst)...

Calgary Real Estate buyers revel in condo over-supply

Calgary Condo Sales slow but moving

Calgary condo sales slow but still moving

It doesn’t appear to make sense.

We’re approaching the final quarter of this calendar year and in the world of Calgary Real Estate, there are record numbers of apartment-style condominiums on the market.   Canada Mortgage and Housing says there may be in excess of 2,000 empty units in Calgary. Yet, more brand-new condo buildings continue to be built, especially in the inner city and surprisingly, in the northeast.  All while owners of resale units are watching their days-on-the-market numbers pile up.

While it may appear fool-hardy to build more, even though our economy is slowly picking up, it’s important to remember...

Calgary Real Estate Market Statistics August 2016

The Calgary housing market was almost like a tale of two cities during the month of August, with the detached housing market having a much different outcome than the higher-density segments. Nonetheless, sales activity was down overall within the Calgary housing market, with total sales reaching just 1,567 for the month.



Benchmark Prices Show a More Complete Picture

Overall, sales for detached homes fell during the month of August within the Calgary housing market. The number of new listings also declined, thereby stopping the inventory from reaching its previous highs. In turn, this has limited the downward pressure placed on housing pricing within the market. The picture wasn’t quite the same within the attached and apartment sectors, however, with both having recorded inventory levels near to their August highs.

Calgary Real Estate Market Statistics July 2016

The most recent CREB report has found that sales activity continues to decline in the City of Calgary. Just as the city has continued to struggle in all economic aspects, so has its housing market. This condition has only been further exacerbated by the declining net migration levels within the city.

Slowing Housing Sales

According to the CREB report, housing sales activity in Calgary reached a total of 1,741 units during the month of July. This represents a 12.6 percent decrease when compared to the same time last year, making it the 20th consecutive month in which the city has experienced a drop in year-over-year sales. As the number of unemployed workers within the city continues to grow, the net migration continues to fall and job loss continues to be a problem, the overall state of the housing market has also continued to weaken.

Calgary Real Estate Market Statistics January 2016

Picking up where things ended last year, the Calgary housing market has pushed further into becoming a buyers’ market in January. While a number of factors are contributing to the current market trend, troubles within the energy sector continue to be the biggest factor leading to the change in market conditions.

The Energy Market Impacts Sales

With prices recently sliding within the energy market, uncertainty within the energy sector continues to grow. Troubles within the energy sector have led to a soft labor market, which has placed additional stress on the local economy as well as the housing market. Namely, a dwindling labor market has resulted in less demand for housing in Calgary, resulting in only 763 units sold during the month of January. These figures are 13 percent below the previous year and 43 percent below long-term averages. Not surprisingly, new listings also fell in January, which posted a 16 percent drop. Nonetheless, the number of new listings put on the market still outpaced the number of sales, thereby resulting in an increase in inventory. By the end of the month, the citywide inventory...
