How was the Calgary Real Estate Market in October?

We saw an inventory drop in October and coupled with sales holding steady with September numbers, the Calgary real estate market is becoming more and more stable.

The Calgary real estate market drives in cycles and we are now approaching the slow time of the year when sales begin to drop.

With sales dropping slightly and a strong indication of inventory dropping, we should see a fairly normal market for Calgary moving through the winter months.

We feel that the winter months are one of the best times to sell your home as you will see a lot of your neighbours pull their homes off the market during the Christmas and holiday season. If there is still demand for your area, you will no longer be 1 of 10 listings, you might be 1 of 3 or 4.

Calgary’s Hottest Real Estate Communities

The three hottest communities in Calgary were:

Ogden, Cliff Bungalow and Acadia.

“All of them had quite a few properties hit the market but almost doubled down on the properties sold.”

There are other communities that have low inventory so if you are looking in any of the communities listed below, you should be ready to jump on that home that pops up on the market that matches your criteria:

North Haven, Christie Park, Upper North Haven, Maple Ridge and Charleswood
