August News

I hope you've been enjoying the great weather we've been having.
It's been a busy summer for the Calgary market - in fact we saw the strongest July levels on record! There continues to be a lot of migration to the province, keeping the demand for housing high, despite increases in interest rates.

This month I'm featuring not one but two great communities - one in the central north-east, and one just south west of the city. I think one of the amazing things about the Calgary area is that fact we have such a diversity of beautiful communities, all offering something a little different to residents in terms of amenities, pricing, home styles, proximity to key employment centres etc.

I also have tips on getting your house organized for back to school, 5 things to do on the Labour Day weekend, and a beautiful new listing in Priddis Greens.
