Calgary residential sales increased by 18% in July 2012 with 1,946 total sold units compared to 1,604 in July 2011. This is mainly due to the "growth in full-time employment, migration and overall improved confidence,” says says Ann-Marie Lurie, Chief Economist for CREB®, a growth supported by latest reports that Alberta is leading the country in most of the economic performance indicators in 2012.

Calgary Residential Housing Market is moving towards balance. Total residential sales in Calgary for June 2012 reached 2211, an 8.5% decrease from last month but a 12% increase over June last year. A look at the long term trends will show that the market is moving towards stability backed by strong employment growth and population increase! Single family home sales in Calgary were 1,617 units in June 2012, a slight decline from May this year, but a 16% increase over June last year. The lack of supply,  2372 new listings added in June 2012 compared to 2,706 in May this year, is pushing the buyers to make their decisions quickly when purchasing a home in the city! Surrounding towns have enough supply though to offset the SFH shortage in Calgary. Calgary Single Family Home average price fo...
