Overall, home selling prices (within Calgary) are expected to rise just 4 per cent this year -- overall.
Just so you know, home measurement and photography are always included in the basic marketing packaging offered by Calgary REALTORS® -- it isn't extra as the last part of the clip would suggest (although you would be expected to reimburse the agent in the rare case that your home does not sell).
This insanity in the market seems to be currently limited to detached homes and has started to spread to semi-detached homes and townhomes. By summer, I expect the apartment market to also be impacted by this trend.
Sorry about the advertising clip at the beginning, but that is what you get when you use copyrighted material. Source: GlobalTV Calgary.
