See you in the spring

As I’ve been doing for the past many years, it’s time to head for the mountains for the winter.  We’ve been skiing for 10 days already and there’s lots of snow on the way. We’re lucky to have such wonderful winters in Alberta.

It’s been a surprising year in the Calgary real estate market. Expectations early this year were for a downturn. We had a shortage of inventory, but I expected the usual influx of listings in the spring would alleviate that problem. It didn’t occur, and provided inventory remains low, I don’t expect anything dramatic to happen. Every major market is experiencing drops in year-over-year sales except Calgary.

I appreciate all the feedback and comments which you’ve provided over the past nine months. In the mean time you can find me at


Summer break

Summer is here in all its glory, so I’m taking a break from blogging for a while. That is, unless something dramatic happens in the Calgary housing market, but I don’t see anything earth-shaking to be imminent. The raw data at SFH stats and Condo stats will continue to be updated as time permits.
