Calgary market is hot, hot, hot

Unlike Calgary's weather for most of this year, the city's condo market is scorching hot, said Matthew Boukall, director of residential advisory services with industry analyst Altus Group.

"We're coming off the best year we've had last year and demand remains strong," he said. "There's a lot of pent-up demand for new housing. So from an inventory perspective we're basically absorbing product as it's coming to market. We don't have an oversupply situation whatsoever."

Compared to February 2012, combined condo apartment and condo townhouse sales in Calgary this February increased by 11 per cent. The boost in condo sales, in part, can be attributed to a tightening market on homes $500,000 and less available in the city.
