April 2024 | Calgary Real Estate Housing Market Update
Price growth persists in Calgary as Seller’s market prevails

Sales in April rose by 7% compared to last year, to 2,881 units. While the pace of growth did ease compared to earlier in the year, sales remain 37% higher than long-term trends for the month.

Much of the growth in sales has occurred for relatively more affordable, higher-density products.

At the same time, there were 3,491 new listings in April, an 11% gain over last year but only 3% higher than long-term trends.

The rise in new listings compared to sales prevented any further deterioration of the inventory situation. However, with 2,711 units in inventory, levels are 16% below last year and half of what is traditionally seen in April.

With a sales-to-new-listings ratio of 83% and a months of supply of less than one month, conditions continue to favour the seller, driving further price gains in the market.

In April, the unadjusted total residential benchmark price reached $603,700, a one per cent gain over last month and nearly 10% higher than last year's levels.

Price gains occurred across all property types and districts of the city. The strongest price growth occurred in the more affordable districts of the city.
