Issue

Housing affordability and choice are critical contributors to Calgarians' quality of life.  To remain an attractive place to live, Calgary must offer a range of housing options to meet the needs of its citizens at different stages of life and with different financial capabilities.  This includes sufficient stock of affordable rental units. The City of Calgary and City Council has the opportunity to cost-effectively provide more affordable rental housing by allowing the development of secondary suites in all residential neighbourhoods.

Currently, in the city of Calgary, secondary suites are only permitted in select land use districts and only as a discretionary use in the R-2 district in both developed and developing areas.  The Land Use Bylaw

crea boosts annual resale housing forecast 2011The Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) has revised its 2011 forecast for home sales activity via the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) Systems of Canadian real estate Boards and Associations, and extended it to 2012.

Sales in the second half of 2010 rebounded faster than CREA had previously expected. "The hand-off going into 2011, together with the highs and lows for sales activity posted in 2010, provided guidance for CREA's revised forecast," said Gregory Klump, CREA Chief Economist.

"Home buyers recognize that low mortgage interest rates represent a once in a lifetime opportunity. At the same time, they expect that rates will rise, so they're doing their homework in order to understand what it could mean in terms of higher mortgage payments

remax residential compound annual growth 2010Kelowna, BC  (February 8, 2011)
