We had an outstanding June as far as the total number of sales are concerned month over month in the community which has mimicked the positive results we experienced in the overall Calgary market.
There were 20 completed sales last month which is the busiest month since the 22 transactions that finalized last August and up from just 11 last month. 16 of the transactions were detached single family homes and the other 4 were apartment condominiums.
The overall Days On Market (DOM) numbers also improved quite dramatically but the monthly average was skewed higher by one listing that lingered on the MLS for a jaw-dropping 447 days. The average actual DOM for detached single family homes was 63.8 days with the 400+ day listing included and an impressive 38.2 without it. The average actual DOM for the condominium apartment category was 99.5 days and the sales fell on opposite ends of the spectrum with 2 selling in under 30 days and 2 taking more than 165 days to firm up.
The current number of active listings moved higher just slightly from 50 to 53 however the months of available inventory dropped with the positive June results to 4.9 months of supply based on the rolling sales average from the past half year.
Looking at the Calgary market as a whole we once again saw some very solid month over month improvement with 1,747 sales in June compared to just 1,080 in May. This year’s June transaction total was just 1.58% below the total from June of 2019 which is very positive news.
We’ve seen the total number of showings wane slightly as we’ve moved into July which is not out of the ordinary for the summer months, so we will see if the June numbers are an anomaly caused by the pent up demand created as a result of COVID-19 restrictions or if we are in fact seeing some semblance of ‘normality’ returning to the market.
As always, we will continue to monitor the market and the phased re-opening of the Alberta economy and keep you updated going forward.
