Could it get any hotter? I'm not talking about the weather. I'm talking about Calgary & area homes priced up to $600,000. After the May long weekend, I saw more houses sell than were listed. In fact twice as much sold than were listed. Is this even possible? Actually yes. There usually are a small base number of houses that simply don't sell. Houses in poor condition, really poor locations or significantly over-priced. Well this is now been eaten up. This weekend the buying frenzy reached new levels. Buyers are looking to lock into a mortgage before the Bank of Canada (BOC) raises its rate again. So if you are thinking of buying - if you see something you can live with - buy it or someone else will a couple hours later.
