Airdrie Real Estate Market Report: November 2015

“Persistently high inventory levels within Calgary’s residential resale housing market, combined with weak sales activity, contributed to buyers’ conditions in November.” – Calgary Real Estate Board

CREB®’s above quote also described Airdrie’s real estate market last month to a tee.

Inventory has been above the 300 mark for 10 straight months and was up +77.4% year-over-year in November.   It’s the highest level for the month since 2011, but still below the 2008 peak.

With the significant rise in inventory accompanied by a precipitous drop in sales, it’s not unexpected to see prices negatively affected.

Overall benchmark and average prices were down -2% y/y, while the median was down -8%.

Focusing on just the benchmark price, the apartment segment was hardest hit, falling -8%.  Row homes were off -4%, while detached and attached homes fell the least at -1%.

October marked the first y/y decrease for the Airdrie benchmark price since July 2012.   November was the second straight month of annual declines with more anticipated to come.
