Strong Sales Growth in July

Posted by Nancy Ball on Tuesday, August 27th, 2013 at 11:41am.

Hello Everyone,

Hope you are all having a great summer. Some interesting articles attached and a special thanks to Neel Roberts for the Calgary Herald article provided.

The Alberta flooding will show its impact in the next upcoming months but sales growth last month was stronger than year-to-date trends and long-term averages. That said, the Calgary Real Estate Board has stated that if new listing levels rise this could help ease tight market conditions. Basically if you are thinking of selling… now is the time to list and buyers are able to negotiate some great deals as more new listings enter the market. Even if you are curious and would like a free market evaluation please don’t hesitate to ask!

Anytime I can create more value to my clients I will do my very best. Referrals are always appreciated. Thanks to customer referrals I was able to help 9 families just in the past two months with their real estate needs!

Thanks again,


Strong Sales Growth in July  
Tight market conditions support upward price trend City of Calgary residential sales totaled 2,268 units in July, a 17 per cent increase over the previous year and up more than six per cent so far this year. The flood that devastated the Calgary area on June 20 likely contributed to pulling forward sales activity, said Ann-Marie Lurie, CREB® chief economist. » Click Here

Provincial flood recovery program will fund complete rebuilds, basement mitigations  
Newly announced details on flood assistance and mitigation should provide homeowners with the clarity they need to start rebuilding their lives, the provincial government said Sunday.

In the wake of the largest flood in Alberta history, the government announced a plan earlier this month to ban new development in floodways — the areas most at risk from so-called “100-year floods” — and encourage residents in borderline flood fringe areas to undertake flood mitigation measures to protect their properties. However, few details were available about what that would mean for homeowners.  » Click Here

found any interesting article like yours. It's pretty worth enough for me.

In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did,
the internet will be much more useful than ever before.
