Thanks again Stuart!

Summary:

October 2017 proved to be a positive experience for home sellers across the Edmonton market. The market put its nose up. Sales values increased. Days on market is about the same and the inventory surplus is starting to come down.

The average sales price of a home in Edmonton in October 2017 was around $376,000 compared to approx. $372,000 in 2016. This means that home sales values were UP again by 1% over the same period last year or just over $4,000 on average.

Days on Market:

It took 58 days to put most homes under contract in October 2017 compared to 57 days in 2016. This is not significant in our view and speaks to the underlying strength of our market here in Edmonton.
