April was almost a carbon copy of March as we had 6 completed sales in the community once again, the days on market numbers improved dramatically as 4 of the 6 sales finalized in 22 days or less with the longest days on market coming in at a respectable 52 days.  4 of the sales were detached single family homes once again to go along with 1 row house sale (5400 Dalhousie) and 1 apartment sale (Vista View); we had no semi-detached/duplex sales during the month.


The active inventory level also increased slightly from 42 to 51 properties as we continue to see the spring market build…hopefully to be accompanied by some healthier sales numbers in the months to come.  Based on the rolling average from the past 6 months, which now sees the high October sales numbers drop out of the range, there is currently 9.86 months of inventory on the market which is still very much slanted in the buyers’ favour.


When looking at Calgary as a whole we continue to see positive signs with higher year over year sales numbers accompanied by lower new listing numbers, a trend that we hope continues as we work towards more balanced market conditions.


While we are on the road to stabilization, sellers must continue to be extremely competitive and very realistic with both list prices and expected final sale prices and on the buyer side of the ledger excellent value opportunities still exist.

We have seen some improvement in the Dalhousie real estate market compared to February with 6 completed sales this past month, the uptick was expected and with the arrival of warm weather we expect to see the trend continue.


The days on market numbers are again quite interesting as we had 3 very quick sales that were completed in less than 21 days while the other 3 sales averaged 164 days on the market so both ends of the spectrum were represented in March.  4 of the sales were detached single family homes and the other 2 were duplex properties; we had no row house or apartment sales during the month.


The inventory also rose and is currently sitting at 42 properties right now…again this is to be expected as the spring market officially begins which generally marks the beginning of our highest inventory period of the calendar year.  Based on the rolling sales average from the past 6 months this works out to 6.15 months of available inventory which is still high.


On a positive note, the market has shown some signs of stabilization across Calgary as the year over year new listing numbers have dropped across the board and over the past few weeks we have also seen stronger sales numbers in some categories as well, again hopefully a scenario that continues and puts things back on the road to a balanced market.


As was the case in our last update, Dalhousie sellers still need to be extremely competitive and bluntly realistic with both list prices and expected final sale prices and on the buyer side of the scale, opportunities continue to present themselves while we are at a low point in the market.
