Canmore Real Estate Newsletter March 2017

It is a great time to be in the Bow Valley.  Visitors and locals alike are enjoying fresh snow and great conditions at the ski hills, the Nordic centre and backcountry. 
The Canmore market continues to be very strong with new buyers coming to market and joining existing buyers that have not been able to find the right property.  Our listing inventory dropped over 5% from February which is surprising as generally as we move into spring we see the listing inventory. Comparing the listing inventory year over year is a lot more dramatic with a reduction of more than 41%.

The market continues to show its strength especially as we compare the year over year numbers for the month of February.  The total number of sales saw an increase of 24% while single family homes saw the number of sales double year over year with an increase of 11% in median price which is equal to close to $85,000.  Number of sales for condos (both apartment and townhome) were very similar year over year but the apartment style condos saw a median price range increase of just under 19%.  Lastly the hotel condo market is quite strong with multiple offers and that was reflected in almost double the sales and an increase of over 67% in the median sales price
We are expecting to see listing inventories rise although less than other years.  As we continue to see the demand rise and with supply staying low, prices should continue to rise depending on the market segment. 
We have some great listings right now, please visit our Featured Listings page to see them all!

Reporting the sale of your principal residence for individuals (other than trusts)


On October 3, 2016, the Government announced an administrative change to Canada Revenue Agency's reporting requirements for the sale of a principal residence.

When you sell your principal residence or when you are considered to have sold it, usually you do not have to report the sale on your income tax and benefit return and you do not have to pay tax on any gain from the sale. This is the case if you are eligible for the full income tax exemption (principal residence exemption) because the property was your principal residence for every year you owned it.

Starting with the 2016 tax year, generally due by late April 2017, you will be required to report basic information (date of acquisition, proceeds of disposition and description of the property) on your income tax and benefit return when you sell your principal residence to claim the full principal residence exemption.
