Tuesday, April 22, 2014 - Toronto, Vancouver, Calgary rated tops for real estate investment

http://www.thestar.com/business/real_estate/2014/04/09/toronto_vancouver_calgary_rated_tops_for_real_estate_investment.html

Canadian cities – and Toronto in particular – are exceptionally good real estate destinations in the long term, according to a new report from a London-based real estate firm. TORONTO STAR/FILE PHOTO

All 3 tops for ‘resilience’ and growth potential, says U.K. report

Toronto, Vancouver and Calgary have been ranked as the three best places out of 50 cities around the world in terms of where best to invest in real estate for the long term, according to a centuries-old London real estate firm.

Their star ranking doesn’t come so much from short-term metrics like return on investment, but their longer term “resilience” — a stellar combination of “low vulnerability and high adaptive capacity,” says the unusual report, more than three years in the making, by the U.K.-based Grosvenor Group.

Adding to that ability to rise above the cyclical ups and downs of the real estate market is the fact all three Canadian cities have a “high level of resource availability” and “are well governed and well planned.”

In fact, they beat out London, New York and even Chicago, ranked as No. 4, for their strong investment potential over the coming decades.

“These Canadian cities have a great deal of economic dynamism,” said group research director and economist Richard Barkham, in a telephone interview from Vancouver where he’ll be discussing the research findings later this week at an Urban Land Institute conference.

“A lot of people just look at real estate investments in terms of short-term risk and return on investment. But we believe you need to look beyond that — to look at cities holistically in terms of their ability to adapt and improve.

Tuesday, November 5, 2013 - Canmore lot sells for a record $2 million

http://www.calgaryherald.com/business/real-estate/Empty+sells+record+million+Canmore/9093149/story.html

CALGARY - A Canmore lot has sold for a record price of $2 million in that real estate market, the Herald has learned.

Kyle Pressman, a realtor with Maxwell Mountain Realty in Canmore, who sold the 14,000-square-foot lot at 23 Prospect Heights, said the sale eclipsed the previous high for a lot of $1.975 million in May 2008.

“All of a sudden we’ve had four sales over $2 million in the past four months. So the wealthy people are getting off the fence and they’re spending money again,” said Pressman.

“They haven’t shopped for awhile and now they’re buying . . . It’s been very good.”

He said demand is continuing in the luxury market with sales 31 per cent higher than a year ago.

Between January 1 and October 25 this year, 22 single-family properties in Canmore, including one lot, have sold for more than $1 million and four properties have sold for more than $2 million including the Prospect Heights lot.

Tuesday, September 17, 2013 - Calgary new home price growth best in Canada

http://www.calgaryherald.com/business/Calgary+home+price+growth+best+Canada/8902836/story.htmlCalgary new home price growth best in Canada

5.8% year-over-year hike best since December 2007

CALGARY - The Calgary region experienced the best year-over-year price growth for new homes across the country in July, according to Statistics Canada.

The federal agency reported Thursday that the New Housing Price Index for the Calgary census metropolitan area rose by 5.8 per cent from July 2012.

“This was the largest price movement in Calgary since December 2007,” it said.

Across Canada, the index was up 1.9 per cent from a year ago.

On a monthly basis, prices in Calgary increased by 0.6 per cent while throughout the country they were up 0.2 per cent.

Statistics Canada said “increased material and labour costs as well as a shortage of developed land contributed to higher prices in Calgary. Calgary has been a top contributor to advances in new housing prices over the past eight months.”

Ben Brunnen, a Calgary economic consultant, said Calgary is a strong economy right now, and there are a lot of factors driving residential housing demand.

“Persistently low unemployment compared to other parts of Canada have drawn lots of interprovincial migrants to our city,” said Brunnen. “This increases housing demand and, when combined with low vacancy rates, really puts pressure on house prices.

“New home construction costs are also on the rise in Calgary, driven in part by labour shortages from the June floods. Expect to see Calgary home prices continue to grow into 2014.”

House prices expected to grow in Calgary

5-6.9% year-over-year hike forecast in the short term

CALGARY — Short-term year-over-year price growth expectations for the Calgary resale housing market are between five and 6.9 per cent, according to the Conference Board of Canada.

In a report released Thursday, the board said the average sale price in Calgary was $423,917 in April, up 4.6 per cent from last year.

The seasonally-adjusted annual rate of sales was flat at 28,548 while listings dropped by 1.6 per cent to 44,364.

The board listed Calgary as a balanced market.

Edmonton’s short-term year-over-year price growth expectations were three to 4.9 per cent.

The seasonally-adjusted annual rate of sales in Edmonton was 17,100, down 8.6 per cent from a year ago while the average sale price moved up by 1.0 per cent to $339,408. Listings were off by 8.5 per cent to 29,232.

Edmonton as well was listed as a balanced market.

Transactions were below their April 2012 levels in 24 of 28 markets in Canada, with 21 reporting a drop of five per cent or more.

Listings fell from a year ago in 14 markets.

Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - Canadian recreational property market buoyed by low interest rates

50% of Canadians feel prices will increase
By Mario Toneguzzi, Calgary Herald May 16, 2013


CALGARY — Continued low interest rates are having a positive impact on the Canadian recreational real estate market, says a survey by Royal LePage.

The survey, which polled Canadians across the country who either currently own or intend to purchase a recreational property within the next five years, found that 82 per cent say interest rates will influence their decision to purchase a recreational property — and 58 per cent feel added urgency to buy a recreational property while interest rates are low.

The survey also revealed that 50 per cent indicated that prices will increase and 32 per cent said they will stay the same.

“Despite financial and economic uncertainty, or perhaps because of it, we have found that the enduring value of recreational properties is widely-recognized by Canadians,” said Phil Soper, president and chief executive of Royal LePage Real Estate Services. “In contrast to our large urban centres, where home prices shot up in recent years before rapidly cooling in 2013, the recreational property market has remained remarkably stable and resilient.”

Royal LePage said the average price range for a standard waterfront, land access cottage of 1,000 square feet, three bedrooms and on a 100-foot lot, is $110,000 to $650,000 in Alberta while the national average is $177,500 to $625,500.

Royal LePage said properties on a lake are by far the leading property type, with almost half (41 per cent) of those planning to buy indicating that this is their first choice, followed by a property in the mountains or woods(17 per cent) and a condominium in a recreational community (13 per cent).

Wednesday, May 22, 2013 - Calgary homebuying intentions fall

Strong price gains put some potential buyers on the fence: BMO

By Mario Toneguzzi, Calgary HeraldMay 22, 2013 9:03 AM

CALGARY — Fewer Calgary homeowners intend to buy a property in the next five years, according to the BMO Housing Confidence Report released on Wednesday.

The report said plans to buy in Calgary have decreased by 13 per cent since the fall (39 per cent versus 52 per cent).

In Calgary, the 12-month price expectations have dropped to 2.1 per cent from 2.4 per cent in the fall.

Sal Guatieri, senior economist with BMO Capital Markets, said “in Calgary, strong price gains appear to have put some potential buyers on the fence.”

According to the Calgary Real Estate Board, month-to-date until May 21, there have been 1,658 MLS sales in the city, up 3.95 per cent from the same period a year ago. The median price has risen by 3.97 per cent to $405,500 and the average price has increased by 2.69 per cent to $458,355.

Nationally, 48 per cent of Canadian homeowners intend to buy a property in the next five years – mostly unchanged from fall 2012 – signalling a high level of confidence in Canada’s housing market is continuing into 2013, said BMO.“The relative strength of the Canadian housing market continues to bolster homeowners confidence, while improving affordability across all regions reflects that Canadians are making responsible choices when it comes to financing a home,” said Martin Nel, vice-president of lending and investments for BMO Bank of Montreal.BMO’s second semi-annual report, conducted by Pollara, tracks confidence in Canada’s housing market among Canadian homeowners by measuring intentions to buy or sell, price expectations and overall mortgage affordability. The report found: close to half of all homeowners under 40 intend to purchase a larger home within the next five years (46 per cent), and are three times more likely to move to a more expensive rather than a less expensive neighbourhood (24 per cent versus eight per cent); 10 per cent of homeowners plan to buy a recreational property in the next five years, down two points from last fall; and homeowners planning to buy an investment property have declined to six per cent from eight per cent last fall.

Wednesday, April 17, 2013 - Hey, Where's The Alberta Boom?

When it comes to the real estate market, the conjecture is flowing, the questions being posed, the concern mounting. In the majority of the country, this concern is all focused on markets perceived to be ‘over-priced’ or ‘over-heated.’ However, with a quick trip west to Alberta you find the concern is on the opposite end of the scale with the experts asking the question: “Why isn’t the market booming like it was in 2007?”

This is real life proof that the Canadian market has become incredibly regional in its performance and focus. The debate in Toronto is all about the over/under supply of condos hitting the market: in Vancouver it is all about whether the city is becoming a haven for empty condos owned by foreigners, in Saskatchewan the discussion is currently focusing on how to provide affordable housing for the growing population of workers.

While these discussions continue, in Alberta the discussion has turned just a little strange. The questions are not about whether the market is over-valued, or whether there are too many foreign buyers, or even a discussion on affordable housing.
