August 1-28, 2013 Calgary Real Estate Update

Calgary home sales month-to-date are up over 28% year-over-year.   Last August’s month-end sales total was 1,722 – and that figure was surpassed back on Monday.

That means the 28% spread from last August will only grow over the next few days and will be the largest y/y increase  in 2013.  (Edit:  my calculation mistake.  The 28% was a y/y MTD comparison, not a month-end to MTD comparison, so it may or may not increase)

It’s interesting to note that August 2012 was up 9.75%  y/y  from August 2011 which was a 28.29% jump from August 2010.    Sales are still on pace for the highest August level since 2005.
