We had another solid month in June with the highest number of sales in the past 10 months and we also saw a decent drop in active inventory to go along with it. There were 19 completed transactions in June, 16 detached home sales and 3 apartment condominium sales.
As mentioned, the number of listings fell compared to last month as there are currently 52 properties for sale in the community which based on the running sales average from the past half year works out to 3.85 months of available inventory…a number that is certainly trending in a healthier direction.
The average Days on Market (DOM) numbers for the sold properties hovered somewhat around the same levels as last month with the detached homes trending higher and the apartments heading slightly lower. The average DOM for the apartments is still high overall coming in at 128.67 days down from 139.67 in May while the DOM for the detached homes was 76.31 days up from 49.13 last month as it seemed the homes either sold in very short order or lingered for months.
The slow and steady mantra continued in June across the City and even with a 6% decrease in the number of sales compared to last year we saw some positive larger picture numbers with a 19% reduction in the number of new listings and a 13% decrease in the amount of active inventory. The oversupply has continued to ease and is slowing the decline in prices, if this trend continues it will ultimately lead to a more balanced Calgary market.
As we have indicated for the past number of months sellers must continue to be extremely competitive and realistic with both list prices and expected final sale prices and on the buyer side, good value opportunities are still plentiful.
