Market Update: January 2016

While the current market presents some challenges for sellers, it also offers opportunities on the buyer’s side. Softer prices combined with still-excellent interest rates are a great advantage for ‘move-up’ and first-time buyers!

CREB, February 1, 2016 – Calgary’s housing market is starting 2016 firmly in buyers’ market territory, much the same as last year ended.  The aggregate benchmark price of $447,300 in January was 1.21 per cent lower than the previous month and 3.27 per cent below the January 2015 price of $462,400. “As expected, the imbalance between housing supply and demand is continuing to place downward pressure on prices,” said Lurie. “However, the recent price retraction has not erased all the gains recorded in recent years, as the benchmark price remains 4.41 per cent above the January 2014 price of $428,400.”
