At the same time in 2020, homeowners were able to sell their properties with a 7% lower success rate as approximately 27.7% of all the listings in Calgary that went up for sale have been sold.

These are very great stats on the housing market in Calgary. However, I think the current economic state and pandemic needs to be considered with the current housing market.
