Here and there

Demographics helping to distinguish Calgary market as Canada's leader

Calgarians need not be defensive about their hometown's place amongst Canada's preeminent cities, at least not when it comes to the world of real estate.

Having seen a rise in sales and prices, Calgary's housing market has been experiencing the same prosperity seen in Vancouver and Toronto – a trio billed as the "hot three" in a recent report from BMO Capital Markets.

There are, however, conditions that separate our city from the housing hot spots to the east and west.

Calgary condo sector helps boost resale activity

Price growth eases as supply improves

Calgary's hot condominium market helped fuel a 10 per cent increase in Calgary's residential resale housing market in October.

Overall sales for the month totaled 2,147 units, compared with 1,948 during the same period last year, according to the latest statistics from CREB®.

"Two consecutive years of relatively strong employment and population growth, combined with rising wages and low lending rates, have supported demand growth in our housing sector," said CREB® chief economist Ann-Marie Lurie.

Personality to spare

Calgary's 'vibrant' inner-city a popular attraction for many

They say it's a place you can go when life is getting you down. A place that has movie shows and little spots to go. In the words of songstress Petula Clark, downtown is where you forget all your cares.

While Clark may not have been referring to the city we call home, the growing popularity of Calgary's inner-city communities stand as proof she was on to something.

Balancing Act

Mid-year forecast calling for more supply, added choices

Mario DeMarco thought he was prepared for anything after deciding to become a first-time homeowner.
