2024 June Condo Market Report

The Edmonton condo market is alive and well. Sales volume is remains very strong. Prices continue to rise, particularly townhomes.

Sales Prices

 

In June 2024 condo sales prices ended 10% up when compared to the same month last year with an average price of around $246,000. This is the highest price point over the last 3 years. However, its worth noting that the number is skewed by improving condo townhomes prices. Apartment style condo prices have been slower to improve and in many cases are still significantly lower than years gone by. If you are a seller, this might be a challenge. If you are a buyer could this represent an opportunity?

Sales Volume

In June there were 731 units posted sold on MLS…

June 2024 Single Family Market Report

Single family home sales volume stayed high. Prices have softened now that the spring market is over.

Sales Prices

Single family homes prices averaged around $516,000 in June 2024, compared to around $468,000 in 2023, an increase of 10% over the previous year. However, prices have started to moderate now that we have entered the mature summer market.

There was around 1240 single family homes sold in June 2024, an increase of just 3% over June last year. We expect any further increases to be modest for the rest of the year given that the market dramatically overperformed for the first half of the year.

The average number of days on market in June 2024 was…

What’s It Like to Live in the Edgemont Community?

Situated in the southwest corner of Edmonton & developed by Brookfield Residential, Edgemont is fast emerging as one of the most popular & perhaps more affordable communities in which to buy a new home in 2024.

Those families that live in Edgemont enjoy trails, parks & woodland throughout their neighborhood. There is also an active Community League & you can find their website here Edgemont Community League.

First established well over 10 years ago, newer segments of the community open up each year.

I interviewed some of the sale’s people that work for the new home builders in community. They suggested several benefits of living in Edgemont & here they are:

What’s It Like to Live in the Kinglet Community?

Kinglet by Big Lake often referred to as ‘Kinglet’ is a new community developed by Anthem Properties Group and situated to the northwest of Edmonton and just southwest of St Albert. Kinglet Gardens is an adjacent community to the south of Kinglet itself and this community was developed by Rohit.

Kinglet residents will enjoy handy access to facilities such as the Edmonton Springs Golf Course and Lois Hole Centennial Provincial Park. Highway 16 is just minutes away and I am told there will be some ‘informal’ access and boat launch points through the woodland preserve to Big Lake itself.

This is a great location for families that want to take advantage of all that Edmonton and St Albert offers.…

What’s It Like to Live in the Blatchford Community?


Are you familiar with the Blatchford community?

Do you know anything about the history of the site?

On both counts its fascinating.

Back in 1927 the then Mayor of Edmonton Kenneth Blatchford convinced the managers of Edmonton development to build ‘an air harbour’. It wasn’t long before the facility literally put Edmonton on the map.

In 1931, Wiley Post was greeted by large crowds when he landed at the airfield as part of his successful attempt to become the first person to fly around the world. From 1940 to 1944 the airfield was known as RCAF Edmonton & functioned as part of the Northwest Staging Route whereby Russia’s defenses were reinforced. At one point it’s been claimed that the…

What’s It Like to Live in the Glenridding Ravine Community?


Not far from the North Saskatchewan River and tucked away in the south west portion of Edmonton, Glenridding Ravine is noted for being close to facilities many of us desire including several golf courses for example the Windermere Golf and Country Club, Jagare Ridge Golf course plus shopping, off leash trails, 2 ski hills, several rec centres and playgrounds are close by.

As the community matures alongside its neighbour Glenridding Heights, this may change. The community is slated to enjoy a future K-6 school, a future transit centre and a future district park campus.

I interviewed some of the sales people that work for the new home builders in community. They suggested several…

3 Things We Like About Anthem Home Builders

 

Established by Eric Carlson back in 1991, Anthem started out as a land developer and creator of retail buildings and we believe multifamily products also.

Over the years they have moved into condo and single-family construction. According to their website, Anthem is the fastest growing home builder in the province.

The mission statement posted on Anthem’s corporate website resonates with me. Its clean and strong. I suspect it will also resonate with many of my fellow Albertans too.

“Great Space. Great People. Great Results. Integrated through a Bold Culture”

Anthem has been developing land for residential construction in and around Edmonton for some time. It’s my understanding that they…
