Home prices remained stable in May
Demand for detached housing continues to rise

Fueled by the detached sector, Calgary home prices trended up for the fourth consecutive month, but remain below 2014 highs.

"The economic climate is supporting detached housing market recovery," said CREB® chief economist Ann-Marie Lurie.

Homes built to challenge the elements 
Albertans are no strangers to extreme weather and one Calgary-based architecture firm says some homeowners are abandoning cookie-cutter construction in favour of design that safeguards against the elements.

CMHC insurance volumes plunged 41% after mortgage rules tightened
Canada's housing agency saw a sharp decline in the number of home buyers who qualified for mortgage insurance under tougher rules implemented last fall.

In its quarterly financial results posted Tuesday, the Canada Mortgage and Housing Corporation said that it insured just over 48,000 new mortgages between January and March, a 41 per cent decline from the previous three-month period.

The value of those loans dropped to just under $8.3 billion, down from $14.3 billion in the quarter that closed out 2016.
