South Calgary Housing Prices

The change in average home price is affected by two factors:

  1. The proportions of home types sold has changed. This means that the mix of homes sold has shifted from a majority of higher-priced homes to a majority of lower-priced homes, or vice versa.
  2. Assuming the mix of homes is relatively stable, all homes are being sold for more or less than the last period.

For example, if the average price decreased from last year, all homes sold this year were either sold for less and/or the majority of them were budget-friendly condos, rather than expensive single-family homes.

Numbers are based on firm contract dates, not when the transaction is reported or when the contract closes.

A contract is firm when both the home seller and buyer agree to the transaction, however this may not be reported in a timely fashion. Therefore, transaction reported dates are when the Realtor submits the sale to their local board. A contract is closed when the transaction actually occurs and the buyers move into the house. Normally, contracts close about 6-8 weeks after a contract is firm, which means the data you're seeing is reported in real-time.

Data is reported in 4 or 8 week periods.

28 and 56 day periods are used because some months have more weekends than others. This ensures that each period has the same amount of days and weekends so that a like-for-like comparison can be made.

What does pro-rated data mean?

Based on historical reporting, it can take up to four weeks or more for transactions to be reported. This means that approximately 30% of home transactions that occured within this period have yet to be included in this report. Because of this, this period's numbers are considered "pro-rated."
