Calgary Real Estate Market Update: May 2024

As we welcome the warmth of spring in Calgary, the real estate market is showing signs of renewed activity. In this article, we'll delve into the current state of the market, exploring trends, statistics, and expert insights to help you make informed decisions.

Market Overview

The Calgary real estate market has experienced a steady recovery since the pandemic. According to the Calgary Real Estate Board (CREB), April 2024 saw a 12% increase in sales compared to the same period last year. This growth is largely driven by the detached home sector, which accounts for over 60% of total sales.

Detached Homes

The detached home market is leading the charge, with a 13% year-over-year increase in sales. The benchmark price for detached homes rose 1.3% month-over-month to $749,000, and 13% year-over-year. This growth can be attributed to increased demand, particularly in the $500,000 to $1,000,000 price range.

Semi-Detached and Row Homes

Semi-detached and row home sales have also seen a significant uptick, with a 15% year-over-year increase. The benchmark price for semi-detached homes rose 1.5% month-over-month to $520,000, and 10% year-over-year. Row home prices saw a 1.2% month-over-month increase to $430,000, and a 9% year-over-year increase.


The condominium market is slowly gaining momentum, with a 5% year-over-year increase in sales. The benchmark price for condominiums remained stable, with a 0.5% month-over-month decrease to $270,000, but a 3% year-over-year increase.

Neighborhood Spotlight: Beltline and Downtown

The Beltline and Downtown areas are experiencing a surge in popularity, driven by the demand for inner-city living and proximity to amenities. Sales in these areas have increased by 20% year-over-year, with the benchmark price for detached homes rising 15% to $1,200,000, and condominium prices increasing 5% to $400,000.
