Notice: Year-over-year comparisons for May will be exaggerated by the temporary downturn from the outbreak of COVID-19 in March 2020.

Calgary's real estate market stabilized this May as sales dipped while prices remained steady. Inventory also trended upwards as more homes entered the market relative to sales. The average sold price of all property types reached $510,908, up by 16% year-over-year and just slightly above the $505K and $509K mark reached in March and April, respectively. Sales dropped by 7% compared to April, marking an earlier-than-expected seasonal decline in housing market activity.

Detached homes accounted for 64% of sales with an average sold price of $595,881, a 15% YoY increase. Semi-detached accounted for 14% of sales with an average sold price of $505,043, a 18% YoY increase. Townhouses took 14% with an average sold price of $327,091, a 15% YoY increase. Condo apartments accounted for the leftover 13% of sales with an average sold price of $289,538, a 22% YoY increase.

From a macro perspective, Calgary's housing market faces numerous tailwinds in the coming year. Rising commodity (oil and natural gas) prices as well as relatively low home prices and cost-of-living in Calgary may push buyers to the region. In addition, depressed home prices and increasing construction and lumber costs will likely suppress the building of new housing, tightening supply. However, the window for cheap financing could be ending soon with rising mortgage rates and the Bank of Canada's signal for tighter monetary policy as early as mid-2022. This could pose a headwind to further growth in 2022.

In addition, the Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (OSFI) and the Ministry of Finance have raised the benchmark mortgage stress test rate for both insured and uninsured borrowers from 4.79% to 5.25%, limiting affordability for marginal buyers.

Calgary Commission Structure

Real estate commissions are the fees that home sellers pay to the seller and buyer real estate agents for their services. In Calgary, the total commission rate is structured as 7% for the first $100,000 of a home’s sale price and 3% on the remaining balance. Seller agents usually get half or 50% of this total commission with buyer agents getting the other half. To calculate your real estate commission for Calgary, see our calculator below.
