Outlook

Supported by a solid financial position, a strong new-home market and a buoyant Alberta economy, Genesis is well-positioned to take advantage of growth opportunities in 2022.

Driven by improved oil and natural gas prices and increases in international and interprovincial immigration, prospects for the local economy are excellent for 2022. The Calgary Real Estate Board reports that Calgary has some of the tightest market conditions seen in over a decade and housing market momentum will continue. Housing price gains, rising lending rates and consumer inflation are expected to weigh on demand in the second half of this year. Nonetheless, persistently tight housing inventories are expected to continue over the next several months. In light of geo-political events and resulting economic uncertainty, Genesis remains cautious in executing its strategy.
