If you click on the Globe and Mail’s real estate page what you primarily see are articles detailing a housing market gone mad. Multiple headlines from various communities state this home has sold over list, attracted multiple bids, sold with no conditions, or sold on the first day. Perhaps the most ludicrous headline reads “This midtown Toronto home sold for $505,192 over asking despite busy street” (March 17, 2022). But wait, I can beat that with a Facebook status from a Kingston, Ontario Realtor® on March 21, 2022: “A house in Kingston sold today for $550,000 over the asking price of $800,000.” In Calgary, a home sold in February 2022 after four days on the market for two hundred thousand dollars over list.

When I read anything that links Calgary’s current real estate market to the conditions of the market in 2006-07, alarm bells go off in my head.

I remember what happened to real estate in Alberta in…

Calgary Real Estate Prices Down Slightly in June 

by CREB® on July 04, 2016  

Calgary home prices continue to slide in most areas of the market, but not at the rate that many might expect. This is partly due to June’s resiliency in the detached and semi-detached sectors of the market, where sales compared to new listings and standing inventory started returning to more balanced levels.

Calgary Home Prices Down Slightly in June 2016“The detached Calgary Real Estate market has been gradually moving towards more balanced conditions, helping to prevent price levels from declining at the faster rates we saw in the previous two quarters,” said CREB® chief economist Ann-Marie Lurie. “While this is welcomed news for sellers, it’s very likely that pricing challenges will persist in the Calgary…

Dear Friends,

October is one of the most vibrant, breathtaking and festive months in Alberta.  The colour of the leaves, the way the air feels and the sun shines in the afternoon, and the hustle and bustle of harvest, Thanksgiving and Halloween.
