Chestermere Grows Again. 1000 New Neighbours. April 16 2014
Chestermere Home Building Permits issued in January and February 2014
There have already been 54 building permits issued in the first two months this year in the Town of Chestermere. The builders are Mattamy Homes with 24, Douglas Homes at 15, Jager Homes, Homes by Avi both at 5, Broadview Homes 2, and Reid homes at 3.
This number lines up with 2013 which was a very busy year with a total of 324 building permits issued in Chestermere. With an average of 3 people per home this would add close to another 1,000 people in one year. Thankfully a new K-9 school is opening this year on the East Side of the Lake This school will have kindergarten to Grade 9 and also have optional French Immersion.
The MLS Listings Market is cooking in Chestermere as well with 135 total sales Condos and Single Family combined as of April 17. Previously in Chestermere 1 sale per day on MLS was very good, and it has been a while since we have seen that.
As resident Chestermere Specialists we watch this market and we know whether it is a buyer's market or a seller's market and what the competition or the demand is for a particular home.

Chestermere Real Estate Market Report Single Family Homes July 2013
The hottest price range for Chestermere is in the $400,000 range with almost 50% of sales in that range. The average sales price in July was $488,528. The average days on market for home that sold was 50.
The next most active price range was in the $500,000 range with 20% of homes selling in that range.
The $300,000 range is down, probably due to a lack of homes available in that price range. In 2012 it was about 22% of the market it is now about 18 % of the market.
Sales above the $600,000 range sales are down from last year. Contrary to what is happening in Calgary sales over the one million dollar range are not up. Traditionally Chestermere follows Calgary’s trends so the better market for higher end homes may come if the market in Calgary continues to thrive.
RE/MAX Real Estate Advocates is located in Chestermere with seven agents who are familiar with the Chestermere Real Estate Market.

Where to eat in Chestermere.
If you are in Chestermere during the week at lunch time you should definately take in the buffet at the Tandori King. Located West of Safeway in Chestermere Station.
The food is good, fresh and the restaurant is very clean.
It has changed owners since it originally opened and it has improved greatly with the current owners.
In Chestermere we are always saying we want more restaurants. We really need to support the ones we have. This is a nice change from pizza, which seems to be the major choice in Chestemrere. Not many restaurants are open for lunch. So please give them a try. There are lots of regulars that we see when we are in for lunch, so we are not the only ones who have found a great and affordable lunch.
