Average Home Prices in Calgary 2022/2023Calgary has a buzz on. Life in Alberta's biggest city is good, the economy is thriving, work is abundant, wages are high, taxes are low, homes are affordable, lifestyles are diverse, and the natural scenery rivals anywhere in the world. And, it's been a record year for Calgary real estate, with residential sales 12% above the 10-year average.

Still, as we prepare to ring in a new year, it's all about the supply chain in local real estate – an inventory level that is now at its lowest since 2005, largely impacted by the withdrawal in sales and new listings.

With a goal of selling quickly, picking the right list price is vitalThe familiar rhetoric about location as the primary determinant of North Calgary real estate value is only partially true. Where a property is situated is a part of the equation, but equally important to a home's value are the square footage, the style and the amenities.
