An Elbow Park home, which was owned by former Calgary Flames goaltender Mike Vernon, has sold for $10.3 million –setting the benchmark for the highest MLS residential sale price in Calgary.
It eclipsed the previous record sale in June 2008 of a six-bedroom Crescent Heights home which sold for $7.5 million.
“We’re finding the real estate market to be quite strong right now,” said Donna Rooney, one of the realtors who listed Vernon’s property along the Elbow River. “This was not our one and only offer. We sold the property in a period of six weeks, which is consistent with what’s going on in real estate.
“This is a real statement that things are pretty good in this city still. There is a lot of confidence in real estate.”
