March 2010 Calgary Real Estate Board Statistics

The lastest statistics released from the Calgary Real Estate Board show a consistant trend of stability in our market.  The number of homes selling versus being listed is at 74% - this almost borderline on the high side - however, statistically - March and April are very busy months.  I expect this figure to come back down into the high 60% range when into the June period.
The median price range for both single family as well as condominium homes went up slightly again - not enough to get excited. 

I would also like to touch on recent media reports regarding first time buyers surging into our market because of the new legislative changes that take affect April 19th, 2010 - most specifically some media outlets reporting that rental income will no longer be able to be used towards your total income.  That is incorrect - only a formula based portion has been removed - too confusing to go into the details - the most important factor here is that YES, you can use upwards to 50% of the rental income to count towards your total income.  Silly media get it mixed again...
