Market Remains Balanced Despite Easing in Absorption Rates

Posted by Nancy Ball on Monday, August 3rd, 2015 at 3:51pm.

Hope everyone is enjoying their summer so far as we are nearing the end and life returns to normal! It has been a wonderful time for me so far, spending time with family and friends and just enjoying the many festivals in and around Calgary.  

It has been a busy summer in real estate as well. The Calgary Real Estate Board (CREB) released its mid-year Update for Calgary's economic outlook which shows a better than expected resiliency in the real estate statistics. In some markets, where prices have remained stable and inventory low, we have seen continued multiple offer situation. To view the full CREB® mid-year forecast update, click here. 

If you are looking to buy, this is a great time! We expect a surge in listings in September as routines are back to usual and kids are at school. Start your search now by visiting my website at and signing up for automatic notifications of new listings in your preferred area. My IDX search will email you listings as soon as they hit the market! 

Feel free to contact me anytime if you have any questions. I am always available to help!
