With the new year has come the age old saying, “new year, new me.” People commit themselves to being the absolute best version of themselves as they start fresh in the new year.

The Calgary Board of Real Estate notes in their January report, "as oversupply continues in Calgary’s housing market, December prices eased by one per cent compared to last month and are over three per cent below last December." This summary of what happened in the final month of 2018 paints a bleak picture of December, which hopefully ended a difficult year in the real estate; though still better than others. Our hopes are that we see even more improvement in 2019!

Here are the highlights from their statistics summary: 

  • December sales totalled 794 units. This is a 21% decline compared to December of 2017. 
  • Year-to-date sales in the city totalled 16,144 units. This is 20% below long-term averages and about 14% less than in 2017.
