First-time buyers up 32%

Over the past 30 days, compared to 2011, first-time buyers have been extremely active in the Calgary SFH market.

This table shows data for 2-storey homes in the suburbs under 1700 sq ft for the period Mar 14 – Apr 12:

Date # Sales Price per sq ft
2012 296 $248
2011 225 $240

When first-timers are active, it also allows the move-up buyer to sell their house and buy a larger one. Sales should continue to show strength over the near future.
