Calgary Mortgage & Real Estate
The city of Calgary is a beautiful place to call home. With the oil industry struggling lately, the real estate market has seen a growing number of homes for sale with fewer people in the market to buy. According to the Calgary Real Estate Board’s chief economist, weakness in the labour market is to blame despite oil prices beginning to rise again. May 2016 saw 12% fewer home sales than May 2015 while active listings increased 14%. The benchmark price for a home was $443,260, down 3.5% year-over-year. The province has experienced a weaker real estate market because of the recent oil industry and its struggles. As a major player in the economy, Calgary real estate largely depends on the oil market and things are beginning to turn around as oil prices slowly begin to rise.
