Calgary Housing Market | August 18, 2013 Condo Report
Let's take a look at the Calgary housing market statistics specifically the condo market. Currently there are 194 houses for sale pending in the condo housing market in Calgary overall, leaving 1166 listings still for sale. The resulting pending ratio is 14.3% (194 divided by 1,360). So you might be asking yourself, that's great... but what exactly does it mean? I'm glad you asked!
The pending ratio indicates the supply & demand of the real estate market in Calgary. Specifically, a high ratio means that listings are in demand and quickly going to contract. Alternatively, a low ratio means there are not enough qualified buyers for the existing supply.
"Current inventory is described as somewhat slow."
Taking a closer look, we notice that the $200K - $300K price range has a relatively large number of contracts pending sale.
We also notice that the $200K - $300K price range has a relatively large inventory of properties for sale at 405 listings. The median list price (or asking price) for all properties on sale in this market is $329,900.
A total of 4123 contracts have closed in the last 6 months with a median sold price of $281,500. Breaking it down, we notice that the $200K - $300K price range contains the highest number of sold listings.
Alternatively, a total of 1209 Calgary MLS listings have failed to sell in that same period of time. MLS listings may fail to sell for many reasons such as being priced too high, having been inadequately marketed, the property was in poor condition, or perhaps the owner had second thoughts about selling at this particular time. The $200K - $300K price range has the highest number of off-market listings at 480 properties.
