STATS: Where Edmonton Home Sellers Stand This Q1 2015

We’ve analyzed the charts presented by The Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) and REALTORS® Association of Edmonton in regards to the real estate activity in Alberta and checked the current outlook for Edmonton home sellers.

Below is our finding. This only represents this blog’s broad opinion on the matter and by no means guarantee the accuracy of the statistics.

 According to CREA, “Residential sales activity reported through the MLS® Systems of real estate boards in Alberta numbered 3,445 units in February 2015, down 27.1 per cent from a year earlier.”

The Monthly Residential Average Prices show that the city of Edmonton has gained +0.8% from year ago prices while Calgary is down -3.6%.

Overall the province of Alberta had an increase of 11.2% as compared to last year on New Listings on the MLS, this translates to a total of 8,750 new properties for sale.

The home prices in Edmonton might have increased but its recorded home sales have dropped down to only 1,073, that is 17.5% lower compared to February 2014.

Total value of home sales reached $383.8 million in February 2015, 16.9% lower year-over-year basis. This tremendous drop might be result of the slumping oil prices to which, as we all know, the city’s economy is virtually tied to.

As you can see in the chart below, Edmonton is still belongs to the top 3 in terms of Residential Average Price ($357,693). A healthy number for both homebuyers and home sellers.
