The REALTORS® Association of Edmonton is reporting 761 sales so far this month for the Greater Edmonton Area. That should put us around 1350 sales for the month, which is slightly ahead of last month (quite unusual for October). That will also put sales higher than last October, which is certainly not what I was expecting since we fell below last year’s levels for the past two months.

    Using one of the reasons the CREA gave for lower sales last month…you know…just to go tit for tat….

    October has more working days this year than it did last year. Last October had 19 working days, and this year there are 22 as far as I can see. In September one reason the CREA gave for falling national home sales was the shorter number of work days.

    Not saying this is the reason for a bump in sales, just pointing out what makes the news one month often does not make the cut the next.

    PS. Weren’t you guys publishing the mean and median prices for a while? Maybe I am mistaken but I thought I remember seeing both posted a while back.
