Calgary Real Estate: March Update

Calgary real estate stats: March 2014

 Calgary's real estate market recorded yet another record month in March, with sale numbers & prices up in all segments. 

CREB®'s chief economist Ann-Marie Lurie says the continued growth in the Calgary real estate market is a result of "the inflow of people to our province over the past 2 years combined with strong gains in employment and tight rental conditions".

Demand for property continues to be stronger than anything seen in seven years, and present listing inventory levels are lower than at anytime since 2006.
