Calgary real estate round up July 2016Here is a round-up of the most noteworthy events surrounding Calgary real estate in July, 2016.

Calgary Home Price Remain Steady...For Now

Seems like there’s a good reason why home prices in Calgary have remained fairly robust, despite the major economic downturn.

A memo obtained by CBC from the Internal Finance Department of the federal government states real estate values in Calgary has been minimally impacted because an estimated 56,000 itinerant works from the oil and gas sector have up and left the province. Those workers, who have been laid off, paid taxes in other provinces, and were not part of the buy and sell real estate process in Calgary and Alberta – they rented homes for the most part.

"Their departure is resulting in a lower

Mahogany CalgaryLooks like things aren't slowing down in the outstanding southeast lake community of Mahogany, which led all in applications for single-family home building permits in 2014 in Calgary. According to the city's planning department, the community had 557 permit applications last year.

Mahogany Island Collection in CalgaryHopewell Residential will be developing a new 22-home island neighbourhood - "The Mahogany Island Collection." Especially unique, not just because of it's urban, island setting, but because this will be the first gated community approved in Calgary in about 13 years. This is pretty surprising, especially in a city of hundreds of neighbourhoods.

Touted as an exclusive, private island community, some believe the concept of a gated entrance is more for marketing than safety. How is it any different than a secure condominium or townhome complex that offers 'resident-only' amenities?

From a buyer standpoint, this will certainly be a status draw for some, but an increased sense of security for others. Having one's kids playing on a gated street would have a

Business in Calgary - February Real Estate UpdateBusiness in Calgary - February Real Estate Update

A few weeks ago I was contacted by Business in Calgary magazine to comment on an upcoming article. You've seen the stats, Alberta has been breaking records for home sales for months now, and it is expected that this positive growth will continue throughout 2014.

Becky Walters, President of the Calgary Real Estate Board (CREB) talks about how Calgary's affordability, job opportunities and low interest rates have encouraged migration, which in turn, has spurred on the housing market and increased home prices.

Personally speaking, over the last five years, 2013 was a winning year for home sales. We're seeing a real influx of new buyers, increased interest in condos, family homes and the lifestyles
