Without further ado, here is a summary of what happened in July in the Calgary Real Estate market:

 Sales have continued to grow, though not at the rate they normally do. In fact, CREB® recorded a decreased number of transactions. This, paired with new homes coming on the market, bumped up levels of inventory. 

CREB® president David P. Brown reported,  “sales growth exceeded expectations so far this year. Clients were re-entering the market after delaying decisions until there were some signs of economic improvement. However, this recovery will require patience. There continues to be many new and resale ownership options available. This reduces the sense of the urgency for many consumers.” 

As the economy has begun its slow but steady recovery, prices on properties are on the rise. The price gains that were made were seen mostly in the detached and attached home sector, where city-wide benchmark prices edged up to $512,100. Apartments are in oversupply, but those that did sell where located mainly in the city-center.
