A Closer look at Calgary Real Estate Market

Calgary Real Estate Market Sources

We are currently seeing a decrease in the active listings in Calgary which is a great thing, however, not all buyers are finding what they are looking for. If you live in an area where the average price, or the price of your home is under the $550,000 price point, you could see lots of buyers interested.

As we move into November more, we are seeing many buyers coming out of the woodwork. It is a great time to get your home on the market if you have thought about selling in the past.
