The housing market trends in Calgary are shifting this year. Due to rising prices and rising interest rates, there are more buyers adjusting their search criteria to accommodate these price increases. An example of this would be instead of looking to acquire a single-family detached home, a buyer may need to start to look at an attached home or even a townhouse in order to stay within the shopping and pre-approved budget that they have for themselves. This can be a hard adjustment to make for a buyer, but the sooner they realize where the market is going, the quicker they can adjust and make better decisions. This is exactly the type of conversations that our agents at Chamberlain Real Estate Group have with our clients to help them navigate the changing landscape.

Calgary's Real Estate Market FAQs

The biggest FAQ we get about the Calgary real estate market is when should I sell my home? There isn’t a simple answer because over the past number of years the rhythms of the market have changed and we haven’t seen them return. If the market is in more of a sellers market you should consider knowing where you are moving to first because your home could sell quickly, and you don’t want to become homeless.

Are house prices in Calgary dropping?

House prices in Calgary are not dropping right now. With the influx of buyers moving to Calgary on top of the demand that we already had with locals, it has caused the market to be in a strong sellers market. When there is a lack of supply of homes for sale tied with more buyers than homes, this is the start of the recipe for home prices to increase.

Is Calgary currently a buyers or sellers market?

Calgary, in 2022, is a strong sellers market. This occurs when there is a lack of inventory and homes for buyers to buy together with a high or increasing demand for houses in Calgary. With this happening in Calgary now, the sellers market could stay here for at least till the end of 2022, if not for a couple of years.

Is the Calgary housing market hot?

The housing market in Calgary is very hot. What this means is that many homes are selling quickly and we are seeing the market mainly being a sellers market. A sellers market means there are many buyers looking and offering on a single home and many times this leads to multiple offers

Is it a good time to buy a house in Calgary 2022?

The only way to truly know when the best time to buy a house is to look at data that happened in the past. If you are in a position where you are needing a home, moving to the city or looking to upgrade, then yes it is a great time to buy a home in Calgary. With the market heating up, and the economy changing away from it just being an oil and gas city we will see these values increase and most likely stabilize in the future.

Is it a sellers market right now Calgary?

It is 100% a sellers market in Calgary right now. If you look at the data at the beginning of 2022, there are only a handful of communities that aren’t in a sellers market. Nearly the whole city has low months of inventory which creates the market to be in a sellers market. The only way this will change is if the demand for the homes drops and inventory increases which creates an unbalance in the market and pushes it away from being a sellers market in Calgary.
