Calgary, Alberta (PRWEB) May 16, 2013

The resale MLS (Multiple Listing Service) market of Calgary recorded a 38% jump in the sales of the city’s luxury real estate. According to the Calgary Real Estate Board, a record number of luxury homes were sold in April this year in Calgary. Mortgage expert and CTO of Syndicate Mortgages, Marcus Arkan feels that there are a number of economic factors that have contributed towards the positive trend in Calgary’s luxury real estate segment.

The Calgary Real Estate Board (CREB) reported that in the month of April, the number of home sales were highest than in any other month. The real estate market of Calgary has been experiencing an upward trend continuously from 2006. In 2012, the luxury home sales summed up to 544.

In comparison to April 2012, when the luxury real estate market recorded the sale of 47 homes this year in the month of April, the total home sales were 65. This comes as quite a surprise, especially at a time when the Canadian real estate market has just missed a housing bubble.

These properties are a part of luxury real estate as they are priced and sold for more than a million dollars. According to mortgage expert, Mr. Arkan, “A few key economic reasons are responsible for the rising trend in the luxury real estate market of Calgary. The reason why home sale figures are constantly moving upwards is because Calgary has lower mortgage rates. Also, due to the increase in income levels of people throughout Calgary, the purchasing power for luxury homes has gradually increased and there are many potential buyers who have the willingness and the ability to buy luxury real estate in the city.”

He also mentioned that a larger home inventory was also a reason for the boom in Calgary luxury real estate. As people get more variety to choose from and have more options, they are more willing to buy a home in the luxury segment of Calgary real estate.

Mr. Arkan believes that this is a great time to shop for property in Calgary and advises new home buyers to invest in the lucrative luxury market of Calgary.
