“Our inventory appears to be at a peak and with sales still holding strong, we expect prices to level off,” says Calgary Real Estate Board President, Ron Stanners. “Early July saw a large number of properties sell over the million dollar mark and this has caused average prices to climb for the month, however the median price has declined by 1 per cent, going from $439,000 in June to $435,000 in July, showing the stability in the market place.”
The average price of a single family Calgary metro home in July 2007 was $505,920, and the average price of a metro condominium was $318,582. Average price information can be useful in establishing trends over time, but does not indicate actual prices in centres comprised of widely divergent neighbourhoods or account for price differentials between geographical areas.
