We had a solid June as far as the total number of sales are concerned with the month over month activity in Lakeview mimicking the positive results we experienced in the overall Calgary market.
There were 9 completed sales last month, up from just 4 in May and just below the 10 registered in June of 2019, 7 of the transactions were detached single family homes and the other 2 were row house condominiums
The overall Days On Market (DOM) numbers also improved quite dramatically but the monthly average was skewed by one listing that lingered on the MLS for 326 days. The average actual DOM for the detached single family homes was 66.7 days with the 300+ day listing included and an impressive 23.5 without it. The average actual DOM for the row house category was 84.5 days with the 2 sales falling on opposite ends of the spectrum taking 11 and 158 days to sell respectively.
The current number of active listings remained almost static at 24 while the months of available inventory dropped with the positive June results to 4.1 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.
