Although sales volume was ever so slightly down in May compared to the same month last year, buyers purchased more quickly and paid a little more than they did last year. Read the details by scrolling through the report.

Sales Values:

Against the backdrop of very high inventory levels, home sellers did well in May. On average we saw home values across Edmonton increase by almost $2300. However, allowing for inflation, this is still a relative flat increase. It should also be noted that this increase was carried by single family sales. The condo market is currently over served and asking prices are being challenged.

Days on Market:

Days on market was also a pleasant surprise. Home buyers will most often take their

"I used Stuart for the sale of my property and purchase of my new property. Stuart is an excellent realtor. Extremely knowledgeable, professional and hard working. His team at Ambergate is also excellent. I used Stuart before in 2011 as well for the sale of my property. I would recommend Stuart to any buyer or seller and would use him again if needed. Excellent realtor"

What Would a Lawyer Say?

Many of our clients ask at what point they bring a lawyer into the process of buying or selling a home. Ask many lawyers this question and they suggest you bring them into the process as quickly as possible.

In some regards this makes sense as they are simply being protective of you the client.

What Do We Say?

Until you have a contract to purchase or sell a home, there’s really nothing to protect and as most lawyers charge by the hour, having a lawyer review every single document or consult with you on each step of the process could be expensive.

"Thank you to Ambergate Realty Advisors for the recent assistance in the successful sale of our family home of 22 years!

Why Did I Choose Ambergate Realty Advisors?

As Stuart said, I listed our home on Kijiji and after having about three interested inquiries, realized that none of these were turning out, it was going to take more time than I wished to invest, not pleased with our recent realtors, I was considering using ComFree, when Stuart called and offered the same pricing as ComFree.

My belated spouse was from Wales UK.  Stuart had a similar accent and offered his condolences, listened and mentioned the same pricing as ComFree Option.  Stuart asked if and

Numbers Sold:

Perhaps the best news for sellers in April 2018 is that we saw 1131 homes sell. This confirms the overall size and strength of the market in Edmonton. However, this is the time when we look for sales volume to remain robust and perhaps even increase. There were 39 fewer sales than in 2017.

Days on Market:

Home buyers continue to take their time when selecting homes in April 2018. Average days on market increased by 2 days compared to the same time last year. Considering the much
