Calgary home sales June

The Calgary Real Estate Board says June home sales fell 12.8% from last year as 2,738 properties changed hands, driven by declines in lower-priced homes.

Despite the decrease in sales, the board says activity was still 17% higher than long-term trends for the month.

The benchmark price across all home types was $608,000 for June — up 8.5% from a year earlier and roughly 0.4% higher than May.

New listings fell 3.6% year-over-year to 3,798 and there were 3,787 units in inventory, 9.2% higher than last year.

Ann-Marie Lurie, chief economist at CREB, says inventory in the lower price ranges of each property type continue to fall, “providing limited choices for potential purchasers looking for more affordable product.”

She also notes that Calgary continues to be a competitive market for some buyers, with more than 40% of the homes sold in June selling over the listed price.
