COVID-19 is boosting home sales in Calgary suburbs, surrounding areas – will that momentum last?

With many people trading in their downtown commute for a home office due to the COVID-19 pandemic, proximity to the city centre has been less of a priority for house hunters this year.

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.
