Calgary Market HEATING UP
Categories:Calgary Economy,Calgary Home Buying,Calgary Market Trends,Calgary Mortgages,Calgary Real Estate,Sell your Home in Calgary
Already in 15 days of Februaury, we have more MLS sales than any month dating back to May 2010.
Again THE TIME TO BUY AND SELL IS NOW: before the mortgage rules come into effect on MArch 18, 2010.
Same thing is happening across Canada.
OTTAWA — Canadian home resales rose 4.5% in January to the highest level since April 2010, the Canadian Real Estate Association said Tuesday. The gains during the month were led by Vancouver and Toronto, CREA said.
Benjamin Reitzes, an economist at BMO Capital Market, said “balance is returning to the Canadian housing market, though there remain some hot spots due to a lack of listings.” “The next couple of months may see a run-up in activity ahead of the new mortgage insurance rules that reduce the maximum amortization term by five years to 30 years,” he said in a morning note. “However, the trend will be towards a stabilizing market in 2011, as mortgage rates rise and listings increase. Home prices are expected to climb modestly from a year ago, providing a better picture of the state of the market.”

Home Prices Increased 6.8% Per Year
Home prices increased 6.8% per year: ReMax
A new report says fewer real-estate listings led to higher home values in the last decade, with prices increasing at an average of 6.82 per cent nationally. The report released Tuesday by real estate agency ReMax said it was either a seller's market or conditions were balanced between sellers and buyers for most of the decade. The main exception was late 2008 and early 2009 when it was a buyer's market.
"Housing markets have been remarkably hearty over the past decade and the stage is set for a better than expected 2011," the report said.
The report examined the ratio between sales and new listings — a rough metric of gauging supply. Increased supply tends to lead to lower prices, and vice versa. Regina saw the highest price increases in the country between January 2000 and December 2010. Average price increases there had an annually compounded rate of return of 9.56 per cent. London-St. Thomas, Ont. saw the lowest increases at 4.82 per cent.
ReMax says the numbers show resiliency in the Canadian market in the wake of major events in the decade, such as the Sept. 11 attacks, the SARS health crisis in 2003, forest fires, ice storms and the 2008-9 recession.
"There’s no question that price growth has been solid over the past decade, but history tells us that exceptional growth supported by sound fundamentals is healthy," the report said. "Concern is only raised when the underpinnings are insufficient to justify the trajectory. By all accounts, Canada’s real estate market measures up to conventional wisdom and the faith in homeownership has not been misplaced."

INVEST IN CANADA
Our International Trade Minister Peter Van Loan is on a tour to Promote our awesome Country. Sounds GREAT to me: See this Financial Post Story
Come to Canada!: Van Loan
Canada's International Trade Minister Peter Van Loan.
NEW YORK — Canada’s international trade minister is on a mission: convince Americans that boring is good and socialism went out with the 1970s.
Peter Van Loan says dispelling long-held myths about Canada is a top priority as the country seeks to capitalize on its newfound economic might and low corporate taxes to woo investors north.
Canada still suffers from a perception as a socialist country, perhaps because of its government-funded healthcare system, Mr. Van Loan told a handful of reporters here on Thursday. “But the reality is we really do represent a free-market alternative.”
To spread the message, Mr. Van Loan and other Canadian envoys have embarked on a seven-city, U.S. “Focus on Canada” tour, part of a global investment series by U.K. newspaper the Financial Times in partnership with Canada.
The first stop was New York City, where the Conservative MP from Ontario told a crowded room of prospective investors, analysts and business leaders that Canada offers huge advantages over the United States, starting with much lower corporate taxes.
“In the ’70s, Canada was a country of big government, big social programs, big debt and high taxes,” Mr. Van Loan said. Free trade “exposed Canadians to competition...and significant tax reforms followed.”
Now, he said, Canadians look at the United States’ massive debt and deficit and find it a “frightening” prospect. He noted that Canada has the lowest ratio of debt-to-economic-output among all nations in the Group of Seven.
After ratcheting down taxes, Canada’s total corporate tax rate is now at about 29.2%, much lower than the U.S. rate of 46.8%, according to PricewaterhouseCoopers.
Dealing with another common perception — that Canada is boring — Mr. Van Loan said the risk-aversion that inspired that notion is what helped the country emerge from the financial crisis largely unscathed while other countries still struggle.
“U.S. companies looking for stability and opportunity in a turbulent global economy can’t afford to pass on what Canada offers,” he said. Mr. Loan, a former lawyer who was elected to office in 2004, acknowledged that resource-rich Canada has gotten a huge boost from the run-up in oil and other commodities.
But he added that the country also is an innovative, knowledge-based economy with the highest percentage of post-secondary graduates among the world’s wealthiest nations. After his prepared remarks, Mr. Van Loan was asked how Canada’s decision in November to block a proposed US$38.6-billion purchase of Potash Corp. of Saskatchewan by Australian mining giant BHP Billiton isn’t a signal the country would turn to protectionism when things get tough. He said the Potash deal failed a very simple test of not offering a net benefit to Canada and added that the government has given a green light to thousands of other investments.
“Canada is open for business,” said Mr. Van Loan, who using his private-sector skills as a deal negotiator to encourage investment as he meets with potential investors. “We want investment. We’ve put together a package that makes [the country] an ideal place to invest and do business.”
While more and more investors have identified Canada as a place to lay bets over the past 18 months, plenty are still unaware of what Canada has to offer, he said. Some in the audience, for instance, looked surprised to learn that Canada is the biggest source of imported U.S. oil.
Canada is hoping more investors and businesses will catch on to the opportunities as the envoys — accompanied by two red-coated Mounties brought along for photo ops — make their next stops in Boston, Chicago, Houston, Dallas, Seattle and Los Angeles. “We have a good story to tell,” said Mr. Van Loan. “We want to get the word out.”

CALGARY HOME SALES RISE YEAR-OVER-YEAR
CALGARY HOME SALES RISE YEAR-OVER-YEAR
Single family homes in the inner-city drive recoveryCalgary, February 1, 2011
– Single family home sales in the City of Calgary edged upwards month-over-month and showed the first yearover- year increase since April 2010, according to figures released today by CREB® (Calgary Real Estate Board).
The number of single family home sales in the month of January 2011 were 791, compared with December 2010, when sales were 734 — an increase of about 8 per cent. The number of condominium sales for the month of January 2011 was 302. This was down from the 320 condominium transactions recorded in December 2010. Year-over-year, the number of single family homes sold in January 2011
in the city of Calgary increased by 4 per cent. In January 2010, single family home sales totaled 762. Condominium sales saw a decrease of 20 per cent from the same time a year ago. In January 2010, condominium sales were 376.
“More affordable housing will continue to attract homebuyers to the inner-city, particularly as employment in the city of Calgary continues to improve,” says Sano Stante, president of CREB®. “Single family homes in the city are currently driving this gradual recovery, and we are seeing
an uptick in the sale of homes below the $350,000 price point. This may suggest more first time homebuyers are entering the market, providing the fuel needed for a sustained housing recovery.”
