Calgary Real Estate Market Trends

Calgary has long been considered one of the best cities in Canada to live in. In the past 15 years, the strength of the area's oil & gas economy has created an incredible environment for lifestyle and real estate investment, a trend analysts expect will continue.

While the city was not immune to the recent economic downturn, Calgary's real estate market has been more resilient to lower commodity prices than it was in the early ''80s.

Despite lower sales volume, many Calgary homes have seen only single-digit declines in value. While property values are well below previous highs, prices for the majority of detached single-family homes are now seeing an increase in the Benchmark price.

Oil is now trading in the $50 US per barrel range, and Calgary property listings - with the exception of condos - have retuned to normal (neutral) market conditions.

Property Market Trend

Despite an economy slowed by COVID19, Calgary detached-home sales were up 41% Y/Y in January. The demand is being fueled more by historically low interest rates and low listing inventory than it is pent-up demand *January 2021*.

As always, well-priced properties only remain on the MLS® System a short time before they are sold, as buyers seek to close the deal with as little competition as possible.
