Calgary Real Estate update for April 2013 by Rod Forsythe

Rod Forsythe’s Calgary Real Estate market Update for April 2013

Calgary’s residential real estate market was more seller focused this March with 20% fewer listings available than in of March 2012. A lack of inventory tends to create a busier looking market than it actually is. Market conditions are a far cry from activity witnessed throughout the frenzy in 2006 and 2007, in fact unit sales in Calgary are still trending under the 10 year average. Homes under $500,000 are in limited supply and with the Spring in full bloom people just need to be a little patient for new listings to show up. The Luxury market in Calgary has had a hand in price increases; the plus $800,000 market is up in unit sales by a staggering 28% over this time last year. In Calgary with the snow finally leaving the ground the Spring inventory will continue to increase. April has already seen a 14% increase in new listings compared to last April. Average price increase year over year in the total Calgary real Estate Market stands at a 6.09% increase over the 2012 average price.
