By Mario Toneguzzi,

Pressure on prices in Calgary’s resale housing market continued in January as MLS listings remained at lower levels compared with a year ago.

According to the Calgary Real Estate Board, new listings of 2,393 for the month were down 4.01 per cent from January 2013 and active listings were off by 18.16 per cent to 2,524.

With sales growing by 17.17 per cent to 1,440, that help spike prices to record levels for the month.

CREB said the median price jumped by 6.71 per cent to $417,250 while the average MLS sale price rose by 5.09 per cent to $462,168. The board, in releasing its official statistics on Monday, said the overall benchmark price in the city, which if what it calls typical property sales, rose by 9.46 per cent to $429,100.

The momentum in Calgary’s resale housing market continued to gain steam in January with increasing MLS sales and prices reaching record levels.

The hot city residential real estate market will register in January its 24th consecutive month of year-over-year average MLS price growth as well as the 10th consecutive month of year-over-year sales growth.

Sales in January will be the highest for the month since 2008.

It will also set a record for the average sale price and the median price for the month of January. Also, earlier this week, the market surpassed the previous January record of 36 luxury home sales of over $1 million set in 2007.

“Calgary’s real estate market is on track for solid growth once again this year, continuing the trend that has prevailed over the past 24 months,” said Stephanie Barber, a realtor with Discover Real Estate in the city. “I expect the number of home sales will continue to grow in 2014 given that the outlook for the jobs sector is to remain vibrant and Calgary’s population is forecast to increase by roughly two per cent.
