Creb: Mid-Year market update shows stability

by Stewart J Lowe & Associates


CREB® forecasts a process of recovery for the remainder of 2017

The first-half of 2017 marked a shift in Alberta's economy from recession to recovery, with conditions supporting stability rather than expansion.

"Economic challenges continue to exist, as high unemployment rates, weak migration levels and more stringent lending conditions are weighing on the housing market," said CREB® chief economist Ann-Marie Lurie. 

"This will continue to cause some adjustments in the housing market for the remainder of this year. However, this is not expected to offset earlier gains supporting general stability in 2017." 

Resale sales activity is expected to total 18,401 units in 2017, a 3.3 per cent improvement over last year. The pace of growth is slightly faster than originally anticipated, due to the stronger growth that occurred in the first half of the year.  

"We saw many of those consumers who delayed any purchasing decisions willing to re-enter the market as concerns regarding the economy eased," said CREB® president David P. Brown. 

"More potential buyers on the market helped move some of the product in inventory and started to create some price stability." 

Improvements in the supply demand balance, primarily in the detached and attached sector, caused prices to start to trend up. Demand growth through the remainder of the year is expected to ease relative to inventory levels. This should prevent further substantial shifts in pricing. Overall, annual city wide prices are expected to remain at levels comparable to last year.

Despite generally improving trends, difficulties continue to exist in the condo-apartment ownership market. Rising sales cannot keep pace with the growth in new listings, keeping supply levels high and placing continued downward pressure on prices. This area of the housing market will likely continue to face challenges well into next year, as it will take time to absorb additional inventory in the resale, new and rental markets. 

"Improvements in the labour market are supporting the shift in the housing market this year. However, activity over the past two years was amongst the weakest we have seen since the financial crisis," said Lurie.

"While the shift is welcome news for many, we continue to expect that process of recovery will be slow and dependent on the property type and location within the market."

Opulence, extravagance, and splendour are words typically used to describe homes of the rich and famous. Those words also apply to Calgary with its fair share of what are considered luxury dwellings.

Historically, Calgary’s luxurious locales have been inner-city neighbourhoods like Britannia, Mount Royal and Rideau Park – established areas characterized by large lots and large homes with unique architecture and proximity to the downtown core.

Canada Real Estate Luxury Real Estate  

Ah, the life of luxury! It’s something in ample supply here in Calgary, thanks to the presence of so many gorgeous luxury homes.  Customized to meet the needs of Calgary’s elite, these dwellings feature a level of detail and sophistication you simply can’t find in standard cookie cutter homes. Whether on properties close to the glitzy urban center or farther into the sprawling outskirts, there is no shortage of glamorous  Calgary custom homes, or places to build them!

Check out just a few of Calgary’s luxury listings below:

31074 Morgan's View - ( Morgan's Rise - Springbank) Calgary, AB

411 Patterson Bv, Calgary, Alberta

904 Royal Av Sw, Calgary, Alberta
Who would have guessed that you could enjoy modern rustic living while still soaking up the urban glamor of Calgary’s shimmering skyline? The amazing penthouse below offers just that. Rustic wood textures take center stage in the home’s floors, walls, and furniture. Many of the home’s features are completely custom and hand made, making it a package found nowhere else.

It’s also hard to get a home that so uniquely combines laid back comfort with quirky yet sophisticated style, but not when you go custom. This gorgeous Calgary home has plenty of individual touches, including remarkable skylights, a mod gallery, and glass panel installations. Its exterior is wonderfully traditional, while still maintaining a high end look.


48 Morgan's Ridge (Morgan's Rise, Springbank) Calgary, AB
Sometimes the most beautiful look for a home is that of a classic style. The manor-style property above honors traditional sensibilities with its dark wood installations, stone facades, and neutral hued decor. There’s no debating the good taste of the  designers  who built this custom masterpiece. It perfectly masters the look of understated elegance.

We hope that seeing these incredible homes has gotten you inspired. If you’re interested in creating a decadent custom home of your own, contact us today - and we will be happy to introduce you to some of Calgary's finest builders.
