Head to head: Calgary housing affordability remains strong compared to other major centres

When it comes to homeownership these days, one of the biggest and most talked about issues is affordability. This issue is particularly relevant when it comes to a generation of young Canadians that many people say is struggling to enter the marketplace due to the high costs of owning a home.

However, like anything else in this country, affordability is relative and truly dependent on context. If you're a millennial or a potential first-time homebuyer of any stripe, you're much better off entering the market in Calgary than other major centres like Vancouver or Toronto.

Through boom and bust, Calgary offers much to love

After living in Calgary for close to 40 years, drawing up a list of things I love about the city could fill a book.

Old faithful: Elbow Drive offers more than just pretty scenery

Throughout the past 39 years living in Calgary, I've always been fascinated by one roadway in the city: Elbow Drive.

It very well might be my favourite road to travel by vehicle, with its picturesque views of the river, parks, commercial development and interesting homes.

The worst is over

Economic growth forecasts paint cautiously optimistic picture for Calgary housing market

Calgary's housing market lives and breathes based on the whims of the city's overall economy.

While the city had an impressive gain of 6.9 per cent in economic growth in 2017 compared to 2016, according to the Conference Board of Canada, the economic engine will slow down this year and in 2019.

The new reality

Calgary homebuilders adapt in the face of adversity

There's no question that demand in the Calgary housing market eased following the collapse of oil prices in late 2014.

The impact of that global event sent shockwaves through the local economy, as thousands of people lost their jobs through two brutal years of recession in 2015 and 2016.

A slowing economy and job uncertainty always have an impact on the housing market, and the city saw a corresponding ease in home demand.

However, Calgary's homebuilders have been resilient and creative.
