2020 State of the Union

February 14th, 2020

2019 was an interesting year, however, the market settled out over the past few months which lends some optimism for 2020. We are heading in to this year with lower inventory levels than we've seen for the past few years which will help. There is still a lot of pent up demand with buyers trying to decide their entry point in to the market. This year may be different as everyone is start ...

December Stat Pack

The December stat pack is in and with that the end of the year stats. Sales were up 1% compared to 2018 and while that's not saying much, it is an improvement to what we have seen over the last few years. Sales did spike in December in both the apartment and attached segments. There was a really good rate deal that was offered in December which shook a few buyers off the fence. I have had ...

November Stat Pack

December 27th, 2019

In a strange twist of events it was apartment sales that really plummeted for November - down 21%! This market segment had been showing some real signs of stability over the past 6 months. There was a spike in inventory as well which was partially due to a substantial increase in new build listings. It's that time of the year where builders are trying to clear out some inventory before ...

October Stat Pack

Suprisingly, there is still decent activity in the market on the buyers side. I have 2 listings yet to sell and the activity has been excellent. I am also working with several buyers that are hoping to be in to a new home before the year is out. As mentioned from the previous month, the stability for the past few months has emboldened buyers to get in to the market. Why not? Interest ra ...

September Stat Pack

We continue to see a trend towards market stability. Inventory levels continue to decline with sales showing moderate increases. I have been extremely busy the last few weeks with motivated buyers. The entry level of all product types are selling quick if they are priced well and show well. Make sure you are pre-approved for a mortgage before you start looking so that you can be ready ...

August Stat Pack

September 18th, 2019
thumb






We have been seeing some stability in the market over the past few months. Part of that is less listings coming on the market and part of that is an uptick in sales (especially in the entry levels of each segment). Low interest rates and realistic sellers have prompted a few more buyers to dip their toe in the water. With the government's new first time home buyer's deal rolling out thi ...

June Stat Pack

July 24th, 2019
thumb




Here are the stats for June. Still trending in the right direction and even though sales were slightly down city wide, the inventory levels are quite a bit lower than last year. This is helping to keep the market prices stable. I have noticed in the last couple months that there are more buyers looking for homes. I believe that with interest rates staying low and prices better than we've se ...

May Stat Pack

The May stats are in and we seem to be trending in the right direction. Sales were up 11% city wide compared to last year and inventory levels are staying lower than they were in 2019. Months of supply sits at around 4 which signifies more of a balanced market than we have seen in a while. Over the past month, I have seen more activity in the market. With Trudeau approving the expansion of ...

April Stat Pack

The stats are in for April and the spring market is in full effect. Although sales slowed down before the provincial election, buyers got back on the horse after the results were in. I am still seeing considerably more activity in the entry level of all segments. With the interest rates below 3% again, buyers are taking the opportunity to get in to the market. It is ...

March Stat Pack

April 23rd, 2019

The stats for March are in! Calgary is still experiencing below average sales, however, there are a couple things that could happen in the next few months that might change consumer sentiment. One is the provincial election. A changing of the guard at the provincial level will at least give some people optimism moving forward. Second, the Federal government may build the pipeline they bough ...
