Summary:

Home buyers continued to demonstrate their believe in the Edmonton housing market by paying more and by purchasing in larger numbers.

Sales Values:

Prices jumped up in November 2017. Home sellers received almost $383,000 on average compared to around $379,000 in 2016. This equates to about a 1% increase or $3251 per home seller.

Numbers Sold:

This is big news. 112 more homes sold this year compared to November 2016. Excess inventory also came down. In October there were 688 more homes for sale when compared to October 2016. In November excess went down to 448. Supply is still at 6 months.

 Days on Market:

Homes went under contract in 64 days this November compared to 62 days in November 2016. This is not significant. 

Outlook:

Perhaps spurred on by the impending changes to lending rules in Canada effective January 1st, 2018 homes sale prices picked up very well.

We anticipate that inventory levels will continue to come down and demand will strengthen as we move into 2018.
