2012 Price Growth
According to Richard Cho, the senior market analyst at CHMC (Canadian Mortgage and Housing Corporation), in 2012 Calgary’s real estate market has transformed from a buyer’s market to a balanced market, driving prices upward.
He also mentioned that a consistently strong economy, growth in income levels and employment opportunities, as well as a high inbound migration rate into Calgary has all led to a higher demand for homes of all types.
Calgary is full of luxury home options. You can still find amazing upscale homes under the $1 million price point with even more high end options over $1 million.
