Calgary House Prices
Update October 19, 2011: Fixed up the script and added data up until September. Using Calgary Real Estate Board data, here are the median house prices for the last few years. If you want to play yourself, keep reading.
I couldn't find an easy way to download CREB data resources, so I had to look at each monthly report and get the median house price out. For the last few years, these URLs look like (note change this year in format):
I had collected the 2004 through 2008 (ish) statistics when we were looking for our current house and I can't find those stats online any longer (CREB's so-called archive only goes back to last year).
The code and raw data is available from a GIT repository at:
git clone http://meejah.homeip.net/house-prices.git
Or, it's also on GitHub. There is a branch called "small" to produce the smaller (512x160 pixel) graph seen on the splash page. Please let me know if you spot any issues in this!
