Market update Aug 31, 2013

Calgary continues to experience a severe shortage of inventory. There is only a 54-day supply of single family homes on the market. Last year, we had a 90-day supply. Despite the shortage of listings, it was the second-best August ever for sales. More detailed statistics can be seen at Monthly stats updates

Inventory vs sales and price2

Bidding wars are also continuing with 14% of homes selling for list price or higher during the last 3 days of the month.

    Another booming month for Calgary. With such a rate of increase, prices here will soon be equal to Vancouver and Toronto.

    And we all read the same headlines in the Vancouver Sun three years ago. — Garth”
