    According to this graph Edmonton house prices jumped from under $410,000 at the end of December to about $417,000 at the beginning of January. And condo’s fell by almost $10,000 at the same period of time. Wild.

    Most of the new built are: Above $417000 for single family homes with double garage; Above $245000 for two bedroom condos; Plus upgrades, plus GST.

    Is there a way to search for homes that have a legal basement suite?

    Calgary single family home prices are on pace to set an all-time record.  Month-to-date, the average price of a SFH is $550,438 with a median price of $485,000.

    We are generally behind Calgary by $80,000-$100,000, if this is any indication, then prices will definitely go up. If people are going to wait any longer to get into housing, especially the mature neighbourhoods, they are going to be in for a shock in a couple of years, pretty sure people in Calgary are. The biggest issue is the rents are not coming down, if anything they are going up. I think Alberta is one of the only places where the rent is way too high compared to the purchase price of the house.

    As an investor it kinda of sucks in decent mature neighbourhoods, there isn’t much inventory to choose from especially if you want something decent 1,200 sqft house for under $375,000. People are saying the last couple of years prices haven’t gone up that much, but from what I see, it has especially the older neighbourhoods. Even areas around Chinatown, try finding something decent for around $280,000, probably has something to do so many projects in downtown.

    I have also noticed an increase in prices in the mature neighbourhoods.
