Sales Fall while Prices Rise

While July sales in Calgary slowed for the first time this year, prices for most property segments have stabilized.

Price increases in the detached and attached segments are the main movers in the Calgary market, with only the apartment (condo) sector showing year over year price declines. High listing inventory levels in the condo sector continue to put downward pressure on prices throughout the city.

Detached homes, which represent 63% of Calgary's MLS® sales, are in balanced market with 3.1 months of listings. This compares to the 7.1 months of inventory the apartment segment now has, which is higher than a year ago. Buyers are firmly in control of the Calgary

Calgary Home Sales Continue to Grow

Calgary housing market gains momentum in April

(May 03 2017): Sales were up across all Calgary property segments in April, setting the stage for the best spring market in the past three years. The job market in Calgary has turned the corner and is beginning to look stronger.

Calgary property sales increased 8.4% year over year. The city-wide benchmark price, which is CREB's combined property sale price, was slightly under 1% lower than last year ($439,600). Note - April sales would have been 4-5% higher had it not been for the Easter long weekend, which occurred in March last year.

(April 15 2017): Calgary home sales continue to show strength in mid-April, outpacing 2016 sales by almost 20%. The detached home sector, which accounts for 2/3's of Calgary's overall sales, bottomed out last year and prices are on track to rise 2 - 3% this year. It's not the 30% increase that Toronto home owners are seeing, but Calgarians will take it.

Sales of detached homes to mid-April are 19% higher than 2016 as the correction continues to take strength. The listing inventory is 24% below last years levels. In some price points, demand has caused the number listings to fall below balance and into a seller's market. Homes priced under $500,000 have only 1.5 months of inventory, meaning half of

Increase in Oil Price Improves Calgary Market

 Updated May 1 2016: At the risk of sounding repetitive, Calgary real estate sales continue to be slow as April nears an end. Traditional 1st quarter seasonality combined with oil’s February’s 13-year low of $26 per barrel have had a negative impact on sales and prices.

Meanwhile apartment condo sales were 21% lower than 2015. Compared to the pre-oil drop of 2014, detached home sales are 25% lower while apartment sales are down 39%.

The median sale price for detached homes is virtually the same as 2015 (+0.6%), and only 1.2%

Calgary Real Estate Market Sends Mixed Signals for April 2012 

Calgary Dream Homes Jim Sparrow MLS® sales for April 2012 gave mixed results for the metro Calgary real estate market. While the number of sales for both single family homes and condos was up dramatically vs. April last year, sale prices for Calgary houses stayed flat, with condo prices showing some improvement.

Inevitably there will be a lot of discussion about the increased number of sales this year compared with April 2011, so allow me to provide a bit of context (seeing the forest through the trees if you will):

Last April (2011) was the poorest April in the past 10 years for Calgary home & condo sales.
