Ready to Move? Now's the Time!

Real Estate 101

Here’s a tip. If you’re in the market to purchase a new home, but aren’t sure if now’s the time to buy, it is! Here’s why:

According to the Calgary Mortgage & Housing Corporation (CMHC), the New Housing Price Index (NHPI) is projected to increase by 4.5% in 215. On the price of an average $4, home, that’s an $18, increase!

But why are prices increasing again?

  • Land supply has been a well debated issue in Calgary, with a limited amount of new lots being released in 215.
  • Todd Hirsch, chief economist with ATB Financial, said over the last year Alberta’s population increased by 3.25 per cent — nearly triple the national average of 1.1 per cent!
  • Therefore, a fast growing population mixed with a limited amount of land availability is causing a rise in prices as supply versus demand is unbalanced.

Ok, but what do I do if I want to sell my current home first?

At Excel, we understand that buying a new home while trying to sell your current home can be an overwhelming process at times. Excel’s professional real estate agent will handle the listing of your home until it is sold. If your home does not sell within a certain period of time, we will release you from your purchase agreement and refund your deposit. Some restrictions apply; for more information on this process, contact the sales team in your preferred area!
