Calgary Real Estate Market – January 2024

Real Estate Market Report | Calgary | January 2024

Calgary continues to set the pace across Canada

Home buyers continue to purchase in Calgary – due to the strong economy as well as an increase in migration. The strongest market in Canada continues to see significant demand primarily in apartments in attached homes. 

We help provide home buyers and sellers with the data they need to be successful. When you have access to accurate and relevant data, you can be more confident in setting the price of your home and selling it or buying at the right price. 

With many important factors to consider (what kind of home you have, what community etc.), it’s important to look specifically at what the housing market is doing in your neighbourhood.  

Bōde sellers are more successful and actually make more money, on average, than the rest of the market. We are also here to make sure you have the information you need to make the decisions that are right for YOU!

So what's happening in the Calgary real estate market as of January 2024?

Let’s start with a Macroeconomics view 

To understand what’s happening in the real estate market you have to look at supply and demand.

The best proxies for supply and demand are:


New supply: New Listings (i.e. the number of homes recently listed for sale)

Total supply: Inventory (i.e. the total number of homes listed for sale)


Sales (i.e. the number of homes recently sold)


Supply & Demand

Months of Supply (i.e. the number of months it would take to sell all current inventory at the current rate of sale)


These metrics are the best indicators of the health of the real estate market. Let’s look at what they show us.

December 2023 saw a steady increase in pricing with fewer homes coming to market

Home sales in December 2023 were 18% higher than the avg of the last 5 years, however not as strong as previous months (taking into account seasonality). Inventory remains at historic lows. There are 40% fewer homes for sale than typical for this time of year. However, new listings increased significantly this month. Overall prices went up by 0.4% MoM while being up 10.5% YoY

Calgary's Detached Homes

Detached home sales were down 11% in December 2023 vs the avg of the last 5 years. They were also lower than 2022, and signficantly lower than 2021. To this end, there are 44% fewer detached homes for sale right now, and prices are up 12.1% YoY

Calgary's Apartments

Apartment sales were up 91% in December 2023 vs. the average of the last 5 Decembers. Apartment sales are close to 2X what they were pre-pandemic. The number of apartments for sale is down 19% from where it would typically be this time of year. Strong demand and low supply have led prices up 16.0% YoY.

Calgary's Attached Homes

Attached sales were up 31% in December 2023 vs the average of the last 5 years. The number of attached homes for sale is down 49% from where it would typically be this time of year. This has caused attached prices to be up over 17.5% YoY.
