Q1 2017 Royal LePage House Price Survey

LePage 1st Quarter Price Survey

(April 18 2017) The Royal LePage house price survey showed most Canadian housing markets had modest price gains in the 1st quarter of the year. The two notable exceptions were Toronto and surrounding area, and the great Vancouver region.

Despite Toronto and Vancouver both showing double-digit year-over-year price gains, the two markets are heading in opposite directions. The Foreign Buyer's Tax introduced by the BC government last summer caused a price reset, with sales in the Lower Mainland down 40% and home prices falling.

The hasty introduction of new real estate-related regulations or taxes in Ontario, in the absence of data and analysis to support these policy moves, could lead to a sharp price

Calgary Real Estate & The Falling Price of Oil

Home Prices & the Fall In Oil Prices

 January 13 2016: 2015 was a challenging year for businesses, and the Calgary real estate market wasn't immune to lower oil prices and the resulting downturn in the economy.

The falling price of oil impacted sales of Calgary property as well as home values across most price ranges. Nonetheless, some Calgary homes sold for more last year than they would have in 2014.

Between 2011-2014, the price of detached Calgary homes increased by 20% as WTI oil sold for an average price of $94 per barrel.

In the space of just over a year the price of oil has fallen by 70%, trading today at just over $30/bbl. These are price levels not seen in 12 years, 40% lower than the average 2015 price of $49/bbl .

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.

Calgary house sales surge in March? 

Your trusted source for Calgary Real EstateCalgary Herald headline (April 2/12) read "Calgary house sales surge in March". Great tagline, the story goes on to describe how Calgary home sales showed a "stunning" growth when compared with a year ago (read full article here).

While all of this is fact, these numbers are all relative to those they're being compared to. We'd like to offer another perspective on the market, and allow readers make up their own minds.

According to WEBSTERS, Surge (verb) = "to rise suddenly to an excessive or abnormal value"

Not convinced that "surge" was the best way to describe last month's sales numbers, I checked the Calgary Real Estate Board's (CREB's) database for March sales in each of the past 10 years:

Calgary Real Estate Market Growth

 "Pay attention. Something's happening here" is what Don R Campbell, well known Vancouver author & president of the Real Estate Investment Network says about the Calgary real estate market.

Campbell is paying attention to the reports coming out showing positive economic news for Alberta and Calgary. Good economic growth. In-migration levels rising. And employment growth leading the way in Canada.

Campbell has long held the view that real estate booms are preceded by predicable market cycles. Initially a market sees GDP & job growth, followed by an inflow of population. This is followed by increased rental demand coupled with decreased vacancies & rising rents, and ultimately rising purchase demand for home & condos and increased property prices.
