Detached homes drive Calgary sales growth in October!

City of Calgary, November 1, 2020 –

With strong gains in the detached sector, October sales in the city reached 1,764 units. This is a 23 per cent increase over last year and well above longer-term averages.

The gain in citywide residential sales outpaced the growth in new listings, supporting tighter market conditions and improving prices.

“Over the past several years, higher lending rates and the stress test pushed many out of the detached housing market. However, recent declines in rates, combined with prices that are lower than several years ago, have brought back some of that demand,” said CREB® chief economist Ann-Marie Lurie.

“This is helping support more balanced conditions…

City of Calgary, October 22, 2020 –

Third-quarter activity was far better than original expectations, as sales activity in the city improved by nearly 12 per cent over last year's levels.

Some of the shift in the third quarter reflects activity that likely would have occurred in the second quarter. The housing market also benefited from easing lending rates and previous price declines. Gains were driven by all property types except apartment condominiums.

"As the economy started to re-open, we saw some improvements in the economic indicators," said CREB® chief economist Ann-Marie Lurie.

"Most industries are not back to pre-pandemic levels, but over the past three months we have seen notable improvement across most industries."

It turns out that some common advice that almost all agents, including me, have been wrong about over the decades is the wisdom of purchasing on a golf course WITHOUT examining how financially solvent that course is. Every year it seems another course in the Calgary area fails; a whole host of reasons.

 Join me as we explore the recent past of some course, and the most recent golf course announcement (fall 2020).

11 Telltale Signs It’s Time For a New Home Main Image

Could it be time for a new Edmonton home? Here are 11 telltale signs.

1. You’re Tired of Paying Someone Else’s Mortgage

Why line someone else’s pockets with your hard-earned money when you could be working towards your own financial freedom? Homeownership won’t just get you out from underneath your landlord’s thumb, it will also help you build valuable home equity and maintain stable monthly payments (goodbye surprise rent increases).

2. Your Family is Growing

Perhaps you’ve met that special someone. Or maybe you and your partner are planning on expanding your home to include children, pets or ageing family members. A larger property will allow you to make room for your flourishing family.

When you’re selling your home, you want it to look its best to buyers.
Unfortunately, buyers are likely to notice any cracks or stains on your floor.
Luckily, there are many do-it-yourself solutions to help make your floors look
significantly better.
Let’s start with stains.
If you have carpeting, there are a number of spot cleaning products on the
market. But before you try one of those, consider this simple remedy. Sprinkle
a little baking soda on the stain and then add just enough drops of white
vinegar to make it bubble. Wait two minutes. Then, dab carefully with a paper
towel and vacuum the residual. This method often works.
For hard floors, gentle rubbing with warm water will take care of most stains.
