     This will be the fourth straight month that we have seen price gains for the city of Calgary! It is giving every indication that we are on the road to recovery and the detached segment is a big reason for this. Benchmark prices in the segment are up 1% since last month and sit at $509,000. Demand is still high with 2.1 months supply across the segment and the Northwest & East area ...

Looks like Ontario is following suit with BC by implementing a 15% tax for foreign home buyers. The move comes as a measure to cool the sizzling market in Toronto where prices are up 33% since this time last year. That along with several other measures (increase in rents capped at 2.5% and taxed on vacant properties) will took effect in April.

Only time will tell whether the new regulations ...

February Stat Pack

March 17th, 2017

After the month of February, we are still showing positive signs for 2017. Although sales were up nearly 20% from this time last year, the numbers are still off by 19% from the 10 year average. It will be interesting to see how the long term averages are affected when 2007 comes off the books next year. It was crazy that year! Hard to believe that is already a decade past. Every segment was l ...

Humidity in Your Home

March 4th, 2017
During the winter months you will probably notice condensation on your windows especially on colder days. The reason for this is that windows are the coldest part of your home. When hot air from inside the home makes contact with the cold surface of the window, any moisture in the air condenses and turns into water droplets on your window. You may also see condensation on your walls. This may ...

Just like that, another year in the books! Everyone might feel like they are a little worse for wear, however, there were some winners out there.

First time home buyers that have been waiting on the fence managed to get some good deals on their new home as ...

January Stat Pack

January 11th, 2017
First month in to 2017 and we are looking much better than last year at this time. Although that’s not a big feat as last January was a record setting slow month, but hey, we are glass half full people here! The last few weeks have been really busy. I have already helped a couple buyers find homes this year. The signal for the bottom may have arrived and that pent up demand I’ve been talking ...
