Luxury Home Sales Calgary According to recently revealed stats, 677 homes sold for more than $1 million in Calgary last year, which represents an 11% jump from 2016’s luxury home figures.

But even as nearly 700 homes traded for over that million dollar threshold, home sales of over $2 million, along with luxury condos for sale in Calgary, seem to have been on the decline over the last 12+ months.

With the Calgary real estate market fairly saturated with available condos right now, it’s hardly surprising to see that only 12 units sold for over $1 million in 2017. Furthermore, just 54 homes with a price tag falling between $2 million and $4 million were sold last year, which is roughly half the number of homes sold in that same price range back in 2016.

Like last year, World Financial Group and the Calgary Home Boys will once again be sponsoring the Children’s Wish Poker Tournament, which allows all you poker nuts out there to compete for the $15,000 prize pool, and the first place price of $10,000!

This year, we’re thrilled to announce that Calgary Stampeders’ Defensive Coordinator DeVone Claybrooks will be the Celebrity Ambassador, and of course there will also be another silent auction taking place during the tournament as well, which will include all kinds of fabulous items up for bid like a dinner prepared by celebrity Chef Craig D’Cruze.

The tournament will take place on Wednesday March 28th at Grey Eagle Resort and Casino,

Attached Home Sales Calgary Overall, 2017 was a pretty strong year for attached properties in Calgary, which is comprised of both semi-detached-style properties and row homes. Total sales volume for attached homes for sale in Calgary spiked 8.2% last year, reaching a total of 4,182 units.

When divided up, sales growth was also strong for each individual category, as semi-detached sales jumped 6% to 1,823 units, and row home sales saw even bigger gains, settling at a 10% increase year-over-year with 2,359 units sold. 

Attached homes can be a great alternative for young and first time home buyers looking for a more affordable option, and attached sales accounted for 22% of all residential sales in 2017.

Detached Single-Family Homes in Calgary If there’s been one segment of the market that has remained relatively stable throughout the recession, most would probably say it’s been detached single-family homes. In fact, detached homes have mostly seen fewer price drops in recent years compared to other property-types, and according to recently released stats from CREB, 11,831 detached units were sold in 2017, which represents a 5.6% increase compared to 2016. 

Even with last year’s strong growth, however, that’s still roughly 9% lower than long-term trends. 

Also noted in CREB’s 2018 Economic and Housing Outlook report, much of that growth occurred over the first half of last year and sales started to slow by the beginning of the third quarter. Sales in the fourth quarter did pick back up,

Calgary Housing Market OutlookThe Calgary housing market continued to stabilize in 2017, according to CREB’s annual Economic and Housing Outlook. After two consecutive years of slower movement, consumer confidence seemed to encourage more activity in 2017, especially over the first half of the year.

But as home sales ticked up during the first six months of 2016 and market conditions continued to improve, more home owners began listing their homes, resulting in home prices staying relatively comparable to 2016. 

Moving into 2018, improving economic conditions are expected to support even stronger growth for the Calgary housing market, as CREB is projecting citywide sales to reach 18,853 units. Prices, however, are likely to remain close to 2017 levels thanks to increasing

More Sellers then Buyers which means a Buyers Market
