October 2022 Calgary Housing Market Update

October sales eased compared to last year’s levels, mostly to slower activity in the detached sector. However, with 1,857 sales this month, levels are still stronger than long-term trends and activity reported prior to the pandemic. Year-to-date sales have reached 26,823 and with only 2 months to go, 2022 will likely post a record year in terms of sales.

New listings also trended down this month causing the sales-to-new-listings ratio to rise to 85% and inventories to trend down. Much of the inventory decline has been driven by product priced below $500,000. While conditions are not a tight as what was seen earlier in the year, with only 2 months of supply, conditions remain tighter than historical levels.

We are also seeing divergent trends in the market with conditions continuing to favour the seller in the lower-price ranges and shifting to more balanced conditions in the upper-price ranges. As of October, prices have eased by 4% relative to the highs reached in May. This is considered a relatively small adjustment when considering price movements in other large cities.

It is also important to note that the October benchmark price is still nearly 10% higher than levels reported last year>
