Calgary housing statistics for January 2024 from Hanney Nelson Real Estate Group


In January, home sales rose significantly to 1,650 units, driven by a surge in new listings totaling 2,137 units. New listings increased, especially for homes priced above $700,000. However, this rise did little to alleviate the low inventory situation, with only 2,150 units available—49% below the long-term average.

Ann-Marie Lurie, Chief Economist at CREB®, highlighted persistent supply challenges. Although new listings supported sales growth, it didn't significantly impact supply, keeping conditions tight. The months of supply in January were 1.3 months, putting upward pressure on home prices, reaching $572,300, a 10% increase from last January.

In the detached sector, new listings boosted sales, but the sales-to-new-listings ratio of 77% had minimal impact on low inventory. Unadjusted detached prices in January reached $702,200, nearly 13% higher than last year.

Semi-detached properties experienced a shift with a sales-to-new-listings ratio of 59%, improving inventories slightly. The unadjusted benchmark price in January was $625,000, over 11% higher than last January.

For row properties, the high sales-to-new-listings ratio of 92% contributed to reduced inventory levels. The unadjusted benchmark price in January was $426,400, almost 20% higher than in January 2023.

Apartment condominiums had a significant sales increase, reaching 488 in January, a 54% YoY rise. Despite new listings, inventories remained 40% below long-term trends. The unadjusted benchmark price in January was $324,000, a 19% increase from last January, with the most substantial gains in the North East and East districts.
