Construction has finally begun for one of Calgary’s most anticipated condo developments in recent memory. Acting as the only luxury concrete condo building in the city’s Inglewood neighborhood, Avil on Atlantic will top out at 7 storeys high and house 64 beautiful condo units once finished. 

Despite construction only just now beginning, however, reports indicate Avli on Atlantic is already 70% sold out, with any remaining units also likely to move quickly. 

Inside, Avli on Atlantic condos for sale boast a chic, contemporary design that includes a stylish combination of high-gloss porcelain fixtures, dark wood grain accents, and absolutely stunning kitchen and bathroom features that aren’t leaving many potential buyers disappointed.

Calgary Condo Market New data from Urban Analytics shows sales for new construction condos and townhouses in Calgary were on the rise from the beginning of December all the way through the first two months of 2017. According to the latest numbers, total new construction multi-family home sales have jumped 11% from December 1st of last year up until the end of February of this year compared to that same time frame a year ago.  

When it comes to condo units specifically, increases were registered in both the concrete and wood frame segments of the market place, which is especially encouraging given Calgary has seen very few units delivered to the market over the last 12 months or so. In all, 95 concrete apartment-style condos in Calgary sold from December 1st through the end

Luxury Calgary Housing MarketReports have surfaced that suggest the luxury real estate market in Calgary has stabilized a bit, which was a trend that really started to take off back in the middle and later part of 2016. According to new data reported in the Calgary Sun, all sales over $1 million, which includes condos, attached homes, and detached single-family homes, jumped by 19% back in 2016 compared to 2015, and in the early part of 2017, it appears this upward trend is continuing heading into the spring market.

Over the first two months of the new year, 64 properties were sold over $1 million, which is the same number of luxury properties sold over that same time period last year. Of 2017’s million dollar sales, 57 were detached single-family homes, while just 2 condos have been

Buying a Calgary CondoIf you’re in the market for a new condo in Calgary, there may be no better time to buy than right now. According to new data from The Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation, and a recent report from CBC News, about 1,500 new construction housing units are sitting vacant across Calgary, with over 800 of those units apartment style condos. 

Back in 2014, much of the Calgary area experienced somewhat of a building boom for condo units; but now just two years later, the market, and the economy in general, is anything but booming. But while the city’s economic struggles continue into early 2017, the surplus of new construction condos in Calgary presents a unique opportunity for anybody in position to buy. 

High inventory levels often lead to lower

Calgary Resale Housing MarketRecently released data and analysis from CREB suggests new construction activity could see a slight increase in 2016, which is certainly a step in the right direction towards a much more balanced and stable market. But new construction isn’t the only segment of Calgary’s real estate market that could see improvement over 2016 levels. According to those same reports, demand for re-sale homes in Calgary could also be on the rise in 2017, even despite the market still being well below long-term trends. 

While it could take time for continued stability to set in, most economic indicators are projecting no further pullbacks in the Calgary resale housing market, according to CREB’s latest annual forecast. Detached home prices are only expected to increase by

Attached Homes in Calgary While semi-detached homes and row homes are fundamentally similar in style, sales activity for each couldn’t have been more different in 2016. According to CREB, semi-detached sales increased by nearly 4% in 2016 compared to the previous year, but still well below sales levels seen during a booming 2014. Even still, the increase was certainly a welcoming sight for what was generally a pretty tough market overall in Calgary last year. 

Economists attribute the sales gains to a growing inventory in the $200,000 to $400,000 price range, but even improvements in the $600,000 to $700,000 price range were also recorded throughout 2016. Prices for semi-detached homes also dropped by 5.49% since the start of the recession, which likely also contributed to the
