Sales Prices Climb & Homes Sold Fast in April 2017

Posted by Ambergate Realty Advisors on Thursday, May 4th, 2017 at 5:16pm.

Summary:

Confidence seems to be growing once again in the Edmonton home sales market. Sales prices are UP and inventory levels are DOWN.

Sales Values

 

Sales prices climbed nicely in April 2017. Home sellers received on average $5,545 MORE, than did those that sold a year ago. We anticipate that this trend may continue as the year progresses, albeit with perhaps the odd blip.

Days on Market

 

The market is speeding up. Based on April’s numbers, home sellers can expect to have their home under contract in around 52 days. This might be further evidence that the Edmonton market is starting to pick up nicely. 

Numbers Sold:

 

In April 88 fewer homes sold than last year. This is not significant.

Inventory levels are interesting. There were 233 LESS homes on the market at the end of April when compared to last year. If this trend continues. then we should anticipate value increases and multiple offers.

Outlook:

If inventory levels stay low, sellers will experience lots of attention.

Home buyers are going to have to work harder. Taking time off work to see homes first and putting in early offers may be the key to success for the best, most sought after homes.
