2024 Forecast in Calgary Real Estate: Market Trends and Our Predictions


Happy New Year!! 
Wish everyone has a Prosperous and Healthy 2024!!

Today I would like to review the Calgary Real Estate Market in the last 2 years and forecast 2024!

Calgary's Real Estate market was strong in the last 2 years especially in 2023 when other cities in Canada were affected by the increase in the interest rates, house prices were dropping, and only Calgary kept on rising throughout the year.  


Total Residential Benchmark price was $516,200 in Dec 2022, and finished at the end of 2023 at $570,100, 10.4% increase.

If we look closer to different types of properties, their increases are much higher.
