Canmore May Home Sales
Canmore May home sales figures turned in yet another strong month of sales and bounced back after a relatively soft April. Year over Year Canmore May home sales were up 28% with a total of 54 properties in sold in Canmore.
Inventory remained tight throughout the month with plenty of buyers waiting patiently for the right properties to come on the market. Once those properties show up on the market we are see numerous multiple offers on properties and those homes selling extremely quickly. As we moved in to the last week of May and the first week of June we did start to see a more steady stream of properties hit the for sale market but even with these added properties inventory remains tight and buyer activity remains strong. The average days on market in May for a property in Canmore was 67 days.
