INFOGRAPHICS: March 2019 CREB City And Region Market Reports

Are you ready for the second quarter of 2019? Here are the latest housing market updates for areas covered by the Calgary Real Estate Board (CREB)!


According to CREB’s latest market report, March saw a modest decline in city wide sales activity compared to last year. However, sales have been rising for more affordable product in the detached and attached sectors.


Shifts in the lower end of the market have not outweighed easing across the higher priced product. First-quarter sales dropped to 3,108 units. This is 9% below last year and 28% below typical levels of activity.


Price declines and relatively slow sales activity are impacting the number of new listings. For the second consecutive month, new listings eased compared to last year’s levels and long-term trends, but it was not enough to prevent inventory growth.


As noted by CREB chief economist Ann-Marie Lurie,

“If new listings continue to slow compared to sales, it could start to help with the persistent oversupply scenario weighing on our housing market. However, inventory is still high. It will still take time for our market to transition towards more balanced conditions and stable pricing.”
