Edmonton’s Local Housing Market is well-balanced and able to meet reasonable expectations

Edmonton, May 3, 2011: According to the REALTORS® Association of Edmonton, the average price of housing remained relatively stable through April as compared to the previous month. The all-residential average price decreased $310 to $327,415; down from $327,725 in March. Single family home prices decreased $425 while condo prices rose $1,305 (0.6%) during the month. Despite the activity the market is balanced without a distinct advantage for either buyer or seller.

“Prices and sales usually increase in the second quarter and REALTORS® are busy serving new and repeat customers,” explained REALTORS® Association of Edmonton President Chris Mooney. “The increase in new listings means that there is a good selection of homes to choose from. However, the market is still price sensitive and sellers will have to have a realistic pricing strategy if they are expecting a quick sale.”

Residential sales were 1,487 down 7.8%; compared to 1,613 in March. Residential listing activity rose from 2,958 units in March to 3,278 units in April. Inventory of homes on the Multiple Listing Service® increased from 6,885 last month to 7,215 as of April 30.

The average* price of a single family detached home in April was $379,075 with a median price of $357,000. Condo average price was $234,220 with a median of $220,000. Duplex and rowhouse prices rose on average from $294,585 to $300,906, a 2.1% increase. All prices reflected sales across the entire Edmonton region including surrounding communities and counties.

The average days-on-market in April was 49 days. The residential sales-to-listing ratio was 45% in April and total MLS® System sales were over $1.822 billion for the year so far.
