How will the flooding affect the resale market?

With several Calgary communities facing flood damage now, many questions have risen regarding what the real estate market will do. CREB recently answered some of these questions in a press release.

 

The short-term affect on the resale housing market?

 

• CREB says majorly flooded communities will have a short-term impact on the resale market
• Number of listings is expected to decrease
• Areas in flooded communities will face price decreases

 

The long-term affect on the resale housing market?

 

• CREB still expects resale growth to rise 4.3% this year
• Resale home prices weren't affected during the flooding of 2005

• Resale inventory could be restricted

 

Something to note: 14% of the city's housing stock were located in evacuated communities.

About 14 per cent of the city’s housing stock is in evacuated communities. This includes about 700 homes that were listed on the resale market prior to the floods. - See more at: http://www.househunting.ca/calgary/real-estate/City+resale+market+adjust+floods/8618093/story.html#sthash.yNCH6X1b.dpuf
