Sales of homes in Hawkwood this past month are following a similar trend of many other established communities in Calgary. While sales are slower than sales in 2014, sales continute to happen and overall sales prices have not substantially lost ground. In fact, on an annualized basis the selling prices in Hawkwood for 2015 are up 3.2% over 2014.

 

Because home prices throughout many areas of the city are somewhat stalled, it remains a good time to buy homes for both first-time buyers and move-up buyers. However due to the negative influence of the media, many will tend to sit back and wait until prices begin to rise overall in the city instead of just in a few select neighbourhoods and price ranges as the case today.

Calgary, AB - September 16, 2015

 

Every month, I've been mailing out 1,000 flyers in some of the newer sections of Hawkwood. (Actually, it's mailed out ten times a year.) There are lots of home insights for homeowners, renters and potential home sellers. If you have any questions about your current home value or wish to discuss marketing your home within the next 6 months, now is the time to talk with an experienced, real estate broker that actually lives in your neighbourhood. As Hawkwood's RE/MAX real estate professional and resident REALTOR®, I can help tell you what others may not be able to share with you. I'm also very "in tune" with many of the northwest and southwest neighbourhoods in the City of Calgary.

 

If you are currently renting your home, and you're thinking now may be the time to buy, please get in touch with me and we can get the process started. As you can imagine, the overall trend of house values within the City of Calgary is upward. Some communities can...

Neighbourhood of HAWKWOOD Stats as of the end of August 2015:

With the end of summer all but complete, the summer market ends this week as we enter the Labour Day weekend. Although school has already started, home purchasers tend to get back into their home hunt after this unofficial end of summer. Market activity should warm up some between now and Thanksgiving's Day. Now is a good time to buy that home you've been keeping an eye on (providing you and your agent are able to get a market value price for it -- there are, incredibly, a few homes on that market that are still priced too high for their location and/or condition.)

Overall, the Hawkwood community remains in a BALANCED MARKET for the month.

Neighbourhood of HAWKWOOD Stats as of the end of July 2015:

July is usually the slowest month of the year for real estate sales in Calgary. This year shows no variation from the norm. We should start to see the listing and sales activity slowly climb until mid-November. It may be a great time to both put a home on the market and to shop for homes in Hawkwood. There will be a little less to choose from than the winter-spring market, but there will be far, far fewer people to compete with in shopping for homes. This also is an ideal time to see property at their visual peak – the grass remains close to green and there's no snow hiding unkept landscaping.

Neighbourhood of HAWKWOOD Stats as of end of June 2015:

As usual, the spring market ended in May and June showed the usual slowdown in resale market activity. With fewer home buyers shopping and fewer homes for sale for the summer months, it may be a great time to both put a home on the market and to shop for homes in Hawkwood. There will be a little less to choose from, but there will be far, far fewer people to compete with in shopping for homes. This also is an ideal time to see property at their visual peak – the grass is green and there's no snow hiding unkept landscaping.
