City's sales slump extends to luxury market, putting buyers in the driver's seat

When Mark Evernden goes to list his own west-end home next month, it will be priced at less than what he bought it for a decade ago.

"I paid $1.3 million, and I know the replacement value if I was building today would be $1.8 million," said the private office advisor and licensed partner with Engel & Volkers Calgary, who has been selling in Calgary's luxury market for more than a decade.

Ever wonder what a $4 million home looks like?

People have differing opinions of what a luxury home truly means. For some it's price, for others sheer size, and for others still it's the prestige of an exclusive location – whether that means an inner-city lot in the middle of the action or a secluded acreage with mountain views. However, when it comes to luxury, seeing is believing. With that in mind, let us take you inside some of the Calgary area's most luxurious homes, all currently priced at over $4 million.

Sustainable splendour

Artesia in Heritage Pointe merges luxury and landscape

Ordinarily, luxury and sustainability are not exactly two peas in a pod. However, Artesia at Heritage Pointe is no ordinary community. Situated just outside Calgary city limits south of the Bow River, the development combines urban and rural living, offering more space to roam, less maintenance and a tremendous sense of community, not to mention spectacular views.

"Our vision is to create a lifestyle community in the Heritage Pointe tradition that functions in tandem with the natural landscape and focuses on sustainability," said Bill MacDonald, project manager for land development at Heritage Pointe Properties.

Built from scratch

The luxury custom homebuilding process

Hiring a custom builder to construct your perfect luxury home is a partnership requiring clear decisions and several important choices along the way.

Lupi Luxury Homes builds 18 to 25 homes a year priced between $900,000 and $3 million. Two thirds of these homes are in communities with Lupi land positions (like Rock Lake Estates in Rocky Ridge), the final third are in inner-city neighbourhoods where customers or the company have bought individual lots.

Behind the numbers

A luxury market stats breakdown with CREB® chief economist Ann-Marie Lurie

CREB®Now: How do statistics for luxury homes fit into the overall housing market in Calgary?

Lurie: It's usually the media that defines what the luxury market is. What I see as luxury is different from everyone else. To me, this reflects properties that have sold for over $1 million, and these properties account for roughly four per cent of all our sales activity
