For Calgary's Best Real Estate Value, Look West

Calgary West

While drilling down into some of the new statistics that the Calgary Real Estate Board recently released, we discovered something very interesting.   The district of Calgary West  which is loosely defined as everything west of Crowchild Trail, north of Glenmore Trail/Highway 8 and south of the river or Trans-Canada Highway, is one of the city’s most stable market areas. That’s in all housing types, from single-family to attached, town homes and condos.  Calgary West showed the strongest annual growth in 2017 with only City Centre to look up to.

The Proof is in the Numbers

As the following chart will show, the communities in Calgary West survived the recent downturn as the best for single-family homes and was the runner-up for apartment...

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 means,...

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...

Calgary Homes For Sale Have Sales Drop

Calgary homes for sale have sales drop consecutively for fifth straight month in 2015. CREB statistics show that Calgary home supply may be coming to a crawl in response to the slowdown. New listings were around three thousand last month which is an eighteen percent drop from  2014. All data provided is from the Calgary Real Estate Board.

Ann-Marie Lurie, chief economist with CREB states “While conditions continue to favor the buyer, both the months of supply and the sales to new listings ratio, which represent measures of market balance, tightened in April. If this trend continues, it should help prevent resale inventories from rising to previous highs and limit some of the downward price pressures we’ve been seeing.”
