Every season brings a change to the Edmonton real estate market and the autumn months are no different. Edmonton realtor stats are showing fewer unit sales while the average residential price in October for the Edmonton Census Metropolitan Area (CMA) is up 1.72% year-over-year.

 “Inventory is still higher than average, which has given buyers a larger selection and more time to make their choice,” Mabey said. “We will likely see average days on market grow as long as the inventory remains higher than last year.”

Total listings are up 10.68%, providing a greater supply, while sales are down 3.85% which indicates a lower demand.

As an Edmonton realtor, I’m seeing positive signs for our real estate market in 2017. According to the Edmonton Real Estate Board, unit sales of all residential listings were up 19% compared to January 2016.

Prices did experience a slight decrease over all categories, but remained fairly stable. Compared to January 2016, condominium prices increased 8.7% and duplex/row houses increased 8%. Single family home prices remained rather stable with an average of $416,859.

“2017 has started strong, with an increase in year over year unit sales and prices remaining stable,” said James Mabey, REALTORS® Association of Edmonton Chair. “While it is still early in the year, the rise in sales suggests that consumer confidence in the housing market is on the rise.”

Total inventory at the end of January 2017 is 5,594. This is a decrease of 2.7% compared to January 2016, but increased 7.4% relative to last month in December 2016. While the overall listings for January more than doubled compared to December 2016, from 1,067 to 2,185, they are lower than last year, this time with a decreased year-over-year by 7.6% from January 2016.

RE/MAX for sale sign, Miracle Homes, Stollery Children's Hospital, Edmonton Realtor, Edmonton buy and sell homes

Being an Edmonton Realtor is more than helping people buy and sell homes – it’s also about giving back to the community. One of my favourite ways to do this is to make all of my listings a Miracle Home.

What is a Miracle Home? It is a house on the market that when sold, a part of the sale is donated to the Children’s Miracle Network. You can recognize a Miracle Home by the yellow balloon and purple teddy bear on the For Sale sign.

The Children’s Miracle Network is a non-profit that raises funds for 170 children’s hospitals across Canada and the United States. The Children’s Miracle Network distributes the donations to local member hospitals to provide funds to help save and improve the lives of millions of children.  

As a RE/MAX Realtor, I was surprised to know that only RE/MAX provides Miracle Homes and is also Canada’s largest contributing sponsor to the Children’s Miracle Network, donating more than $64 million to this great cause.

In Edmonton, RE/MAX Realtors’ support goes specifically to the Stollery Children’s Hospital. In 2016, Edmonton RE/MAX realtors and home owners donated $450,000, and since 1992 they have donated more than $5 million!

The Stollery Children’s Hospital provides specialized and acute care for children of all ages from premature babies to older teens throughout Western Canada. The Stollery is a leader in saving lives and providing remarkable treatment for children who are critically ill or injured.  Each year the Stollery cares for more than 215,000 patients. Donations provide state-of-the-art equipment, research funds, training opportunities, in-hospital programs for kids to play like kids again, and so much more. Miracle Homes improve the lives of children in our community by providing them with world-class care when they need it most.

There are countless stories of how the lives of children and their families are greatly improved because of the care they receive at the Stollery Children’s Hospital. Samantha Roth is one parent who shares, “When Liam was 16 months old he was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at another hospital where the care he received was confusing and slow. When we moved to Edmonton and transferred his care to the Stollery, they went above and beyond our expectations. They take the time to listen to our concerns and are extremely supportive. If we ever moved away from Edmonton, I would keep Liam’s care at the Stollery and drive hours and hours for his appointments.”

Since the Stollery Children’s Hospital greatly improves the lives of numerous children, I’m going to continue to sell homes with the yellow balloon and purple teddy bear on the For Sale sign so that miracles will continue to happen.

If you are thinking of selling in the near future, please feel free to contact me to discuss your goals.

I am here to help!

The Real Estate Council of Alberta (RECA) is arranging to implement a rule change that will make written service agreements mandatory between brokerages and clients.  What this means is that all Edmonton Realtors will have to enter into a written service agreement when working with buyers.   A mandatory service agreement is already required when selling Edmonton Real Estate.

When using a Realtor to help you with your biggest investment of a lifetime the key professional services that you receive are, the nuances of the process (specific to the market you are in) and advice on features and faults that you may miss.  I have worked within BUYER AGENCY SERVICE AGREEMENTS for over 9 years and have found that there are many benefits to having a service agreement that assure a professional service for buyers, sellers and Realtors: 

Improving Education & Professionalism:  A Realtor is a professional who is hired to help people with their largest financial investment and should carry out their business in a professional matter. By outlining exactly what each other’s roles are and responsibilities, a buyer will have a better understanding of the process and services involved.  This education creates a dialogue about how a Realtor would be getting paid which is also very important. 

This is all good news for buyers when purchasing real estate in Edmonton, and other Alberta cities.  Things have not changes with respect to the market norm - the seller still pays for the buyer’s real estate fees.  The buyer’s fees still normally come out of the transaction and are paid by the seller upon closing. In my opinion this just makes sense….. it is very diffucult for a buyer having to come up with cash for a down payment on a property, and to come up with cash for real estate services.  Since most buyers use a Realtor to help them with the buying process, as a seller, it would be in my best interest to market my home with a buyer’s agent fee to assure that I don’t illiminate this huge pool of qualified buyers.  Read more detail by visiting...
