We had a solid June as far as the number of sales are concerned with the month over month community activity mimicking the improvement in the overall Calgary market.
There were 9 completed sales last month, up from 7 in May but still well below the 16 registered in June of 2019. 7 of the transactions were detached single family homes, 1 was a row house condominium in the Dalton Square complex with 1 apartment condominium in the Vista View building rounding out the group.
The overall days on market numbers also improved quite dramatically falling to a healthy 33.1 days for the month led by the detached category that saw every completed sale aside from 1 firm up in under 30 days and 3 in less than 14 days.
The current number of active listings also increased to 43 while the months of available inventory dropped with the positive June results to 5.7 months 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 is 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 move 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.
