Aggregate sales in the communities surrounding Calgary grew by nearly 12 per cent in 2013 for a total of 4,400 units. Unlike trends in the city, the level of new listings in surrounding areas fell by one per cent in 2013 compared to the previous year. Rising sales activity, combined with a decline in new listings, helped reduce somewhat elevated supply levels and supported some price growth.
Areas surrounding the city have not only benefited from the strong economic fundamentals in the region, but have attracted many consumers looking for more affordable product with existing amenities in place.
