Indeed, the second half of 2010 has proven to be weaker than expected, and Calgary's housing market is taking some time to re-gain traction, says Diane Scott, president of CREB®.

Subdued sales have meant buyers have an abundance of product to choose from, and they can be selective in their buying criteria.

In this market, REALTORS® and their sellers have to be competitive in their pricing and go back to the basics"condition, location and price, adds Scott.
