Highrise Calgary Condo Analysis October

Highrise Calgary condo analysis by Highrise Condo Group.  October showed some positive signs in the overall market, including month-over-month gains in the apartment/condo sector as 14 more condos traded hands in the month (yes only 14).  We don’t anticipate this to be a trend, and the figures are more likely attributable in the short-term to an influx due to the recent mortgage rules that took effect on October 17th.  Year-to-date numbers in the condo sector are still down considerably, withRead more

Condo Profile – First in East Village

First condos, a new development by Fram & Slokker in Calgary’s East Village features 196 suites over 18 floors. The name is suitable as it was the first building constructed as part of CMLC’s master-planned redevelopment of the East Village neighborhood. East Village has evolved from a rundown and neglected commercial area into one of the most desirable inner-city neighborhoods to reside. Anchored by the Simmons building, the area now exudes a distinct appeal to the trendy forward thinking urbanite.Read more

Highrise Monthly – August

Fall is in the air, and it’s not just the leaves that are dropping. Sales aredown across all market segments as are prices. None of the economic indicators reflect an anticipated short to mid-term increase in prices especially within the apartment sector. If you are on the fence about selling your condo I would suggest doing it now rather than waiting for prices to decline and inventories to rise even further. Consecutive months of decreases pose challenges for sellers who purchased recently, the flip-side offers opportunity for buyers looking to get into the market orRead more

Noisy Upstairs Neighbors? At least it’s not these two!

Condo living comes with its challenges, and as many can attest to, neighbours can make or break a multi-family living experience.  You are forced to share much of your living space with numerous people you didn’t necessarily choose to live with. While highrise living can help with noise between units from mandated concrete construction, many live in lowrise woodframe buildings.  The video below is a humorous spoof I believe many can attest to.  Read more
