Calgary real estate is predicted to remain balanced in 2021, despite persistent economic pressures tied to the oil and gas industries, as well as COVID-19.  

According to Re/Max, the outlook for Calgary real estate in 2021 is a 3% increase to just over $470,000

Demand for Calgary homes is now driven by upsizing and first-time buyers, and is predicted to continue beyond 2021. These purchasers choose single-family houses.

In Calgary, first-time buyers are mainly singles or young couples seeking for single-detached houses. Due to low borrowing rates, many first-time homeowners have opted to purchase.

Calgary condos average just over $225,000. The supply of condos in Calgary is presently 7 months, and this is not projected to change in the next 1-2 years due to the significant quantity of used properties and new development. The average starting price for a luxury property in Calgary is $750,000.

Areas such as Bankview as pictured, present some of the most diverse price ranges.

Northern, Southern, and Northern/Central Western Calgary were the top areas for home sales.

It's close to the airport and downtown, whereas South Central is newer and close to the hospitals. These areas will remain popular in 2021 due to their proximity to amenities and transit. Calgary's new-home sales are slowing, and many developers are seeking for property to build on. A proposal was rejected a few months earlier owing to COVID-19 and the present economic climate. The quantity of new houses being built in Calgary is adequate to fulfil current demand, and new home prices are highly competitive.

Canadians are relocating. The re-location trend across the Canadian housing market is significant, and we expect solid national house price increases.

A persistent and widespread housing supply deficit will certainly persist, posing hurdles for purchasers and driving up costs. Moving-over purchasers from other cities and provinces will continue to drive market activity in early 2022.

Move-up purchasers will likely be a significant driver of property market demand in 2021 In 2021, 52% of Canadians say real estate will be a good investment. We anticipate the supply issue, pent-up demand, and record low loan rates will continue to fuel activity in 2021.

Coach Hill/Patterson Heights is in southwest Calgary, established in the 1970s. It is a mixed-use development with detached homes, townhouses, and flats. The region was named after the Old Banff Coach Road, which used to transport stagecoach passengers to Banff.

Patterson Heights began in the 1980s. Previously, it was mostly privately held land. Patterson Heights has two landmarks. The CFCN tower gave the region its original name, Broadcast Hill. The Crandel family operated the first brick factory in Alberta and lived in a historic brick mansion nearby. The plant located in Edworthy Park, near Brickburn Railway Station. The Patterson family, for whom the neighbourhood is named, bought the Crandel home.

The Bow Trail connects Coach Hill/Patterson Heights to downtown. The region has great views due to its height. The community facility is surrounded by greenery and has a playground, soccer fields, a baseball diamond, and an outdoor rink. Some of the popular activities at the community centre include: line dance, Celtic dancing, Tae Kwon Do and Girl Guides and Brownies. The Girl Guides help clean up the town and preserve gardens and green spaces. Coach Hill/Patterson Heights co-ordinates sports with Strathcona/Christie. Coach Hill/Patterson Heights also hosts annual activities such as a Stampede breakfast.

As a mature Neighborhood, Coach Hill continue to see new projects and developments

Even though Coach Hill Patterson Heights is a well-established neighbourhood, there are still many changes happening inside and around it, for example, Kumlin Sullivan Architecture Studio and the proprietor of 1186 Prominence Way SW want to apply for a land-use redesignation within the area for a future development.

Outdoor Activity Center & School Redesign

The community is currently converting the present Adopt-a-Rink location into a year-round outdoor activity centre. 

The Calgary Board of Education revealed in late June 2021 that the completed plan for High School Resignation is the same plan presented on June 1, 2021.

Despite strong community opposition, kids from Coach Hill and Patterson Heights will attend Bowness High School rather than Ernest Manning High School. Coach Hill and Patterson Heights used to attend EMHS, but due to overcrowding, communities were forced to relocate.

Trinity Hills/ Medicine Hill

The Paskapoo Slopes stretch 4 km west and northwest of Patterson Heights along Highway 1 to COP. 

The 260-acre parcel was sold to Trinity Development Group, and in 2015 the City Council authorised a plan to develop around 100 acres of land on the Paskapoo Slopes into a mixed-use community named Medicine Hill. Visit the Trinity Hills website for further details.

SW Ring Road

The completion of the SW portion of the ring road has improved the accessibility of this area considerably. Access South Calgary, businesses on MacLeod such as Chinook Center, and get out to Kananaskis easier than ever before!


Why Coach Hill?

If you are looking to enjoy the advantages of a mature community in West Calgary, Coach Hill is a great option with its close proximity to inner city Calgary, LRT access, and short drive time to escape out to the mountains.

Home sellers know they are competing both with the new infills in neighboring communities like Rosscarrock and Killarney, as well as the newer homes out west in communities like West Springs and Aspen woods. Homeowners in this area are well aware of this and that is why we have seen quite a few extensive rennovations featured on many of the houses we have listed here recently, in fact this might be a sweet spot for value in West Calgary that is often overlooked when consumers are faced with the marketing for newer communities further out west.

Not only do homes in Coach Hill feature larger lots than those in adjacent communities, but there is far more green space and pathways in the area than neighboring inner city communities.

Commuters will also enjoy the convenience of getting to downtown on Bow trail, which can often be a more pleasant experience than that had by those who live further North and need to cross the river to get downtown.

It goes without saying that we think this is an underrated community that should be considered by anyone looking for a home or investment property in West Calgary that is far enough away from Downtown to enjoy larger lots, but close enough to enjoy the LRT, and relatively easy access to Downtown.



We just listed a great completely modernized and renovated townhome in the neighborhood, check it out here!

Today we're taking a look at our listing located at 705 3240 66 AVENUE SW in Calgary.

When you think “Inner City Townhome” in Calgary, what usually comes to mind?

Normally you would expect a 1500 square foot townhouse, located 9 minutes from the city center, 6 minutes from Marda loop and 5 minutes to Mount Royal University to come with a huge price premium.

This spacious townhome features three large bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, and a connected double garage with room for two cars and storage. We think this unit strikes the perfect balance between size, price and prime location!



Take a look at our Video Tour of this property!

With the sprawling paths and greenspace of North Glenmore park, abundance of nearby schools, local businesses and shopping, Lakeview offers an attractive family lifestyle.

The open country kitchen offers plenty of storage cabinets and counter space, as well as two huge, sunny west windows. The apartment includes a stainless refrigerator, electric flat top stove, dishwasher, and hood fan.

There is also a spacious dining area, which can seat ten people at a table.

Living room in Lakeview Green Condo, Calgary

A stone-faced gas fireplace can be found in the big living area.Sliding patio doors open to a private fenced yard with flagstone patio and built-in planter boxes. While this private backyard is a great retreat to sit and enjoy nature, you will also notice how much green space is in and around this complex.

Open-riser stairs lead to the Master bedroom, which has two huge closets and a three-piece ensuite with a walk-in shower.

Two further bedrooms share a big four-piece bath up a few stairs from the primary bedroom.

Of course, the townhome has been freshly painted, has new carpet, an updated furnace and hot water heater; it is ready for immediate occupancy. The spaciousness of all the rooms will pleasantly surprise you.

Lakeview Green Condo - large kitchen with dining area

There is enough space to grow into this unit with your family. We have seen a lot of customizations and renovation to this unit. One idea we have seen in the past with is knocking down the wall between the landing area and the rear area of the garage to make an extra den, office or family room. You would still be left with a single garage and driveway.
