Welcome to your January 2015 Update!

From Tina & Tania...

Happy New Year!!  We hope that everyone had a warm & relaxing holiday season filled with lots of goodies!  Our parents came to town again this year and a good time was had by all, and of course many board games were played.  (Catan - yay!  Monopoly - boo!)                   
Market Stuff:  There are a lot of questions out there but nothing concrete has happened to the market yet.  CREB (the Calgary Real Estate Board) is holding their annual Creb Forecast in mid January so that should shed some light on things to come.  Be sure to tune into your February Update for the take-aways!

Condominium and townhouse sales set a new record for 2014 

Anne-Marie Bruzga-Luchak, CREB  1.02.2015 
Calgary, Jan. 2, 2015 – It was a record setting year for Calgary’s condominium apartment and townhouse sectors, as sales reached new annual highs despite year-over-year residential sales declines of 7.5 per cent in December.
Single family sales totaled 708 units in December, a year-over-year decline of 8.3 per cent. Meanwhile, total condominium sales also declined by six per cent over the same time frame, but overall activity remained consistent with long-term averages.
“It is not unusual to see slower activity in the month of December as consumer focus often shifts toward the holiday season,” said CREB® president Bill Kirk. “While monthly sales activity has slowed, it is consistent with December activity over the past several years. Overall, annual sales activity has actually
increased by 9.3 per cent over last year.”

Crime Mapping Your Community

Interested in checking our your community or a community you're thinking of moving into?  This web application is great!

The Calgary Police have developed a web application to provide citizens of Calgary with an interactive mapping tool, to assist them in learning more about activity in their communities, and to engage them in problem-solving. It enables users to search the Calgary Police Service’s records management system, and map reported crime in one or several crime categories. Data can be searched by crime type, time period, and community boundary. There are 12 categories of crime available for searching, including arson, assault, attempted murder, break and enter (2 types), vandalism, robbery, sexual offences, theft (3 types), and homicide. The application accesses information for the specified date range, and can retrieve and display information going back as far as six months.
