Calgary Housing Update - 1st June 2022
Please find attached the Calgary Housing Summary, that just came out on 1st June.
The market is still very busy and favours sellers.
Detached homes prices have risen by 16.6% across the city (over the past 12 months), even though sales have moderated.
 
One thing to bear in mind is: Calgary is not Vancouver or Toronto, so if you have been looking at
Canadian news about real estate, you will often hear that house prices are coming down, which may be the case in the two large cities. However Calgary has its own economic indicators, such as very high oil prices, excellent economic growth, 
and net migration into Alberta, is very strong. Plus Calgary is very affordable compared to the two big cities.

Calgary Housing Update May 2022 - Bank rate versus Oil Price!!
Many buyers and sellers are asking: "where is the real estate market going in Calgary?"

On the one hand we have the Bank of Canada raising bank & mortgage rates, which slows the economy, but on the other hand we have oil around $110 (WTI), unemployment coming down, net migration into Alberta is rising & diversification is in full swing. Right now we have a sellers market for detached, semi-detached and townhouses.

Recent price gains and tight market conditions have also encouraged many sellers to list their home this month. However, demand was strong enough to absorb the additional supply,
ensuring the market continues to favour the seller. With 4,670 new listings coming onto the market in April, inventory levels trended up relative to last month and last year. With the elevated sales, the months of supply remains below two months. 

House priced above $600,000 represented 25 per cent of the sales that occurred this month. This is a significant increase from last year when they only represented 12 per cent of sales. The shift in distribution is causing both the average prices to record double-digit year-over-year price gains.

More bank rate increases could start to slow the Calgary market, but right now its a sellers market in may communities. It is not evenly spread, the newer communities are attracting more buyers and price gains. Do you need more information on your community & how it is performing? Please contact me.

Calgary Hot Housing Market Continues - Feb 2022

We have a Hot Calgary Market! What is happening to Calgary real estate market? Cash offers! Competing offers! Offers way over list price! Prices rising fast! Frustrated buyers! No condition offers! The detached market has gone a little crazy.

Detached Market: This is where the market has shifted dramatically. Prices are rising month over month. We have had a 14% increase in prices over the past 12 months and this is accelerating. We just had a 2% increase in the last month from previous month.
Why is this happening? Many reasons:

1) Net migration into Calgary is up. 
Migration is one of the main drivers in house price increases.

2) Mortgage rates are low.
3) We are moving towards full employment.
4) Calgary house prices are very affordable compared to Toronto and Vancouver. Many young people are moving here.
5) Oil is over $90 and rising. And diversification is happening.
6) Very few homes on the market for buyers to choose. Low inventory!

Sellers are seeing multiple offers coming in as soon as they list their home. Some are cash offers way above list price. We are seeing unconditional Offers $50,000 and over the list price. The Attached and Row markets are following the detached market.

The apartment market is not as hectic and is a balanced market right now. But sales have dramatically increased. We are seeing sales closing in on the sales of 2007. The apartment market is turning and given the right conditions may follow the surge we had in 2007.

What is your Calgary house worth right now?
