Focus On

Calgary housing.

Calgary's housing market is still dealing with lower oil prices and widespread cutbacks in oil and gas jobs. Residential real estate is now firmly in a buyer's market, a condition not seen in Calgary since the recession in 2008 and 2009.

Condos and two-storey homes in Calgary are still priced higher than in most other Canadian cities, with the noticeable exception of Toronto and Vancouver.

Calgary’s average home prices have bumped up and down for the last few years.

About Calgary

Calgary is the largest city in Alberta and the fifth-largest metropolitan area in Canada. Visitors and residents in 'cow-town,' as it is affectionately known, can enjoy the beautiful landscapes of the Rocky Mountains and the city’s many highlight events: the Calgary Stampede, the Calgary Folk Music Festival, and the Calgary International Film Festival.

The city is also home to the nation's oil and gas industry, which, although it has seen some difficulty in recent years, is still a major driver of Canada's economic growth and a key source of employment in Alberta. One in 16 jobs in Alberta is related to the energy industry, according to the Conference Board of Canada.
