This spring, the Calgary real estate market is regaining its poise after a pretty wild decade. We’re seeing some relatively affordable homes and a more even exchange between the forces of supply and demand. Though we aren’t likely to experience the highs and lows of the recent past, buyers can expect pretty stable growth from current Calgary real estate investments.
Calgary has long been known to have one of the strongest economies in all of Canada and the city continues to draw new residents from other provinces and around the world. In a recent report, the city of Calgary said it expects to see a 16% increase in net migration for 2010. Downtown revitalization, waterfront development and a hearty expansion of the famous Stampede Grounds are among the many projects that are supporting healthy growth of both the city and the real estate market.
Other world-class features like the C-Train, Calgary’s state-of-the-art LRT, and the extensive riverside trail system have gained the city a reputation for sustainable development while helping to connect Calgary communities.
