Edmonton Real Estate Market Weekly Update, March 22/13

Edmonton Real Estate Market Update

Here is our update on the Edmonton real estate market. (Previous week’s numbers are in brackets). For the past 7 days:

New Listings: 390 (455, 521, 373)
# Sales: 296 (243, 241, 228)
Ratio: 76% (53%, 46%, 61%)
# Price Changes: 158 (160, 140, 146)
# Expired/Off Market Listings: 85 (59, 188, 191)
Net loss/gain in listings this week: 85 (153, 92, -46)
Active single family home listings: 2088 (2065, 1970, 1823)
Active condo listings: 1549 (1549, 1467, 1398)
Homes 4-week running average: $403k ($402k, $393k, $394)
Condos 4-week running average: $241 ($238k, $233k, $229k)

Fairly sizeable jump in sales this week, I expect it will increase next week as well, based on the activity at our office. Although there were a lot of showings cancelled yesterday, they all seem to be re-booking today. That said, Spring Break and Easter weekend could cool things off a bit. You really don't know what's under all that snow when you're considering buying a home buried under 3 feet of the fluffy stuff. Sure looks pretty though!

    Very impressive numbers on all fronts, i’m almost suprised at the continued strength of the Edm market. Too all the renters out there who think Edm’s housing market is in correction mode ….open your eye’s!

    You can almost hear the starting gun going off.

    AND THEY’RE OFF! Here come the buyers out of hibernation. Another spring housing market is up and running.

    Throw in a couple major pipelines and another plant or two worth oooooh lets say another 15 billion and watch what happens. Oh and unemployment at almost zero. I can see this trend for a few years yet.

    Wow….it sure doesnt take much to get the bulls counting their money! A little Kenny Rogers advice might be good here.
    Trend is up…but tis the season and mortgages are free. Time will tell.

    Hi Sarah,

    Is the Median price moving with the Average? Thanks!

        I had a link at the numbers for this month so far, and the average is increasing faster than the median… I will have a full report on the 1st.
