Domino effect

Surrounding housing market to follow Calgary's lead in 2017 after challenging conditions in 2016

Slow stabilization in Calgary's housing market in 2017 is expected to create similar momentum for satellite communities such as Okotoks, Cochrane, Airdrie and Chestermere, say local officials on the heels of CREB® releasing its 2017 Economic Outlook & Regional Housing Market Forecast.

According to the report, Chestermere in Rocky View region experienced a widening gap between sales and new listings during 2016, putting downward pressure on benchmark prices – notably detached homes, which dropped 2.5 per cent from 2015 to $490,808.

Commercial development in Airdrie steady despite downturn

Paul Gerla has long had a vision to develop a vibrant neighbourhood shopping destination in Airdrie's flourishing southwest quadrant.

And he wasn't about to let a downturn in the provincial economy distract him.

"When we evaluate a project like this, we think in terms of decades, not necessarily what's happening today," said Gerla, general manager of WestMark Holding Ltd., which is behind a new five-hectare Cooper's Town Promenade commercial district in the upscale Cooper's Crossing community.
