Beginning with possibly the most basic statistic, the multifamily average sale price in Calgary. The average sale price communicates to investors the long-term trend of prices, as well as whether they’re attaining a good deal on their transaction. It allows potential multifamily owners to understand the current value of the property in comparison to what they’re buying or selling it for. The current average multifamily sale price in Calgary from November 2021 to 2022 was $7,373,581.19. The properties considered had a total average of approximately 37 units. Investors can also view larger-scale trends to predict the change in average sale prices, making this statistic an important variable to consider when making a real estate transaction. 

Another important piece of data is the average price per door of multifamily buildings in Calgary. This is an additional means for investors to compare the value of a property to the price. Similarly to average sale price, it can be used on a larger scale to determine the best time to invest in real estate, specifically in multifamily buildings. The average price per door in Calgary from late 2021 to 2022 is $177,734.44. 

The last statistic to be explored is the capitalization rate, cap rate, of Calgary multifamily buildings.The cap rate is the estimated amount of revenue a property can return which is drawn from its value or price per year (income over purchase price). It includes all operation expenses, but not the purchase or sale of the property. Along with communicating the expected return on investment, the cap rate also indicates the risks associated with a property. Knowing the cap rate of a property is vital in the real estate decision-making process, especially for multifamily listings as it can dictate whether the property is worth the investment. A good cap rate for a rental property is typically 5-10%; the November 2021 to 2022 average cap rate of multifamily buildings in Calgary is 5.19%. 

Overall, understanding the statistics behind an investment property will aid in maximizing your revenue. While the average sale price, average price per door, and average cap rate are vital, there are endless variables that could be considered.
