What exactly is a seller's market? It is simply when the number of available properties for sale is drastically lower than the number of buyers looking for a home. As you can imagine, this situation can lead to buyers fighting over one particular property and ultimately driving up the prices.

Like me, you may be wondering what is causing the seller's market this spring. Below are some of my musings and it mostly has to do with more buyer's in the market!

  • The spring in general always brings out more buyers
  • You may remember putting off your fence or deck project last summer due to the seemingly insane price of lumber at your local building centre. Builders were also feeling the squeeze and the number of new housing starts last spring reduced…

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Sellers' market conditions continue in April 

City of Calgary, May 2, 2022 –  Following an all-time record high month of sales in March, activity slowed down in April. However, with 3,401 sales, it was still a gain of six per cent over last year and a record high for the month of April. 

“Despite some of the monthly pullback, it is important to note that sales remain exceptionally strong and are likely being limited due to supply choice in the market,” said CREB® Chief Economist Ann-Marie Lurie. “While further rate increases will likely start to dampen demand later this year, more pullbacks in…

Get your Spring Cleaning Done in Half the Time Spring cleaning can seem like a great idea until you actually get started. Then it often turns out to be more work than expected! The good news is, there are proven techniques to make the job easier so you can get it done faster.

• Before you begin the project, make sure you have everything you need: hammer, boxes, tape, garbage bags, etc. Think of the supplies you’ll need on hand and the tools that will make tasks easier. You don’t want to have to waste time on frequent trips to the store.

• Plan how…
