The Alberta government has mandated that professional services businesses, such as lawyers and accountants, be able to work by appointment only. Therefore, the AREA are reinstituting a ban on all in-person open houses for REALTORS® as professional service providers. Showings can continue with appointment only and limited to two family-unit members at a time.


Please continue to adhere to all the best practice safety protocols. 



Be mindful of any and all provincial guidelines and local ordinances.


There has been no known COVID-19 transmission from open houses, but an abundance of caution is in the best interest of everyone at this time.

I hope this post finds you well and healthy as we all continue doing our part in social distancing as new cases of COVID-19 continue to impact the Calgary region. Throughout this year, there have been several hurdles we've all had to overcome as we adjust our lives to a new normal.


With that being said, the real estate market has been resilient following a slower than usual second quarter. June and July were the busiest months with 1,747 sales and 1,835 sales respectively.


At the end of September of this year, inventory levels were down when compared to levels in August. This is a good thing because it brings down the number of months inventory is sitting which ultimately begins to strengthen the price. These actions are leading us to the point where we’re beginning to slide into a sellers market.


The benchmark price of detached homes is $468,000, which is up 6.1% when compared to Q1 when the benchmark price was $450,000. Overall, the price of homes is up 1.3% when compared to September 2019.


3,237 sales occurred in Q1 and 5,110 sales occurred in Q3, which is an increase of 50% and tells us that people are actively committed to buying and selling. When looking at YTD sales from 2019 to 2020, sales are down by 9.3%. At the end of September in 2019, 12,956 sales had occurred and at the end of September in 2020, 11,747 sales have occurred.


When looking at the bigger picture, I believe sales and inventory are healthy; we will most likely see the price of homes continue to increase and we'll probably end the year with similar sales numbers to 2019.


Overall, the real estate market in Calgary is in a good place and I think it will remain the same for the next little while. I don’t believe things will return to the way they were when COVID-19 was first becoming a prominent force in our lives because we all have a better understanding of how to manage our processes so we can continue to buy or sell homes.

Residential sales in August continued to be stable and in line with levels over the last five years with 1, 573 sales occurring last month. Although national reports show a bounce back to record levels, Calgary has seen improvements over the lows recorded during the lockdowns but is not quite at said record levels. 


New listings are easing and it's helping chip away at existing inventory and the pace of the year-over-year decline has eased as inventory levels have trended up relative to levels recorded a few months ago. The months of supply has also risen compared to the past few months and now sits at four months which has slowed some of the monthly gains on prices. The residential benchmark price in August was $420,800 and is nearly 1% lower than last years’ levels.
