I believe that there is always something to be thankful for.
But like the majority of you, 2020 will not be looked back on with a great deal of fondness.
From the wide-ranging effects of the pandemic to the seemingly unending negativity and focus on the things that make us different, I am hoping that this year will bring us together and the focus will be on positivity and the values and interests which we all share.
Through all this, the real estate market weathered the storm fairly well, CMHC had this to say:
"November brought the start of a seasonal shift downwards in Calgary's real estate market. Average sold prices for all property types was at $455,584, a 4% decrease compared to October 2020. Prices of most property types have stagnated since 2019 with condos down by 7% and detached homes up by a minor 3%. However, semi-detached have remained strong with an 11% increase from 2019 despite still being below recent highs reached in August."
While the volatility seems like it will remain for some time, it is more important than ever to have a great real estate agent in your corner.
I am proud to lead a team of 140+ Realtors (and steadily growing) based in Calgary and Cochrane, who share a dedication to providing a superior client experience, with every element based on "Putting YOU First."
If you are thinking about selling or buying a home OR perhaps joining a strong real estate team, we should talk about our progressive and dynamic group.
All the very best to you and your family.
