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:

1. A Great Layout

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.…

May 2024 Single Family Market Report

Single family home sales volume stayed higher, and prices lifted again in February.

Sales Prices

Single family homes prices climbed to just under $525,000 in May 2024, compared to around $484,000 in 2023, an increase of 8% over the previous year. We have seen an 8% for the last two months.

I anticipate that prices will start to moderate and flatten as we enter the mature summer market.

There was an even 1400 single family homes sold in May 2024, an increase of 15% over May last year. It should be noted that these sales volumes have moderated considerably since the start of the year when in February for example sales volume surpassed last year by 63%.

Sales Prices

In May 2024 condo sales prices ended 10% up when compared to the same month last year with an average price of around $236,300. The price growth pattern is clear. However, it’s likely that that values will moderate from this point, based on what happened from May onward the previous 2 years.

In May there were 797 units posted sold on the MLS system compared to 585 last year. On average we have seen condo sales volume exceed sales volume over last year by over 40% for each and every month of 2024.

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…

3 Things We Like About Morrison Homes

 

Morrison Homes started out with humble beginnings. Mr. Frank Morrison, a cabinet maker by trade, started the company from his kitchen table. Building first in Calgary. Today the company is serving the metro Edmonton market too.

In 1983, Mr. Al Morrison took over the reins of the company and today Morrison Homes is proud to build several hundred homes a year. Perhaps a company that is big enough to offer you economies of scale, but at the same time provide you with a sense of personal service?

What are the 3 things we like about Morrison Homes?

1. Small Company Values

Take a visit to the Morrison Homes website and you will find a page featuring the company’s management team. We like this as it…

April 2024 Single Family Market Report

Single family home sales volume stayed higher, and prices lifted again in February.

Sales Prices

Single family homes prices climbed to just under $514,000 in April 2024, compared to around $478,000 in 2023, an increase of 8% over the previous year. Prices have now easily surpassed the highest prices of the previous 2 years. However, we would normally see values level off in May and June. And as high as demand is, income levels of would-be borrowers may ultimately control the growth in prices simply hinged to a person’s ability to pay.

Sales Volume

There were almost 1400 single family homes sold in April 2024, an increase of 45% over April last year. We expect sales numbers to stay high, subject…

2024 April Condo Market Report

The Edmonton condo market is alive and well. Sales volume is extraordinarily strong. Prices continue to lift.

Sales Prices

In April 2024 condo sales prices ended 8% up when compared to the same month last year with an average price of around $234,000. The value trajectory is unmistakable. Condos in April sold for around $25,000 more than those in January. However, it’s entirely possible that values soften over the summer months in line with seasonal trends.

Sales Volume

In April there were 754 units posted sold on MLS system compared to 492 last year. This is the 12th consecutive month of volume sales growth. Absolutely incredible performance clearly indicating the value buyers place in condo product…
