“Calgary looks VERY solid from a short-term supply/demand perspective. Definitely the best looking major metro.”
Just how solid is the Calgary market at the moment? Let’s do a quick recap of October 1-21 activity.

There were 783 SFH sales which is an +8.45% increase from last year. Average prices have risen $28,839 or +6.24% to $490,996. The median has increased $32,000 or +8%, from $400,000 to $432,000.

I’d be remiss if I don’t end this post with the remainder of Ben Rabidoux’s assessment of the Calgary real estate market. He continues:
“From a longer-term perspective, there is still some dead air between current prices and underlying fundamentals that I suspect will constrain price growth going forward. I’m far less concerned about Calgary at the moment, but don’t fool yourself into believing that the economy out there isn’t still tethered to a notorious boom/bust commodities cycle.”
