Still Standing

It will take some time to determine the full impact of Alberta's worst flood ever on the housing market, however, recent history suggests property values in affected areas in the city of Calgary will not take a long-term hit.

Reaching a New High

The benchmark price for a single- family home in Calgary has increased beyond peak numbers seen in 2007, reaching a new high of $452,900 in April.

Single-family sales in the city totalled 1,611 in April, nearly two per cent higher than April 2012 while yearto- date figures are similar to levels recorded in 2012. While sales growth in the first part of this year was stifled by a shortage of new listings and inventory, the year-over-year 6.2 per cent increase in new listings helped support sales growth in April.
