As we ring in the New Year, it is clear that we will see a continuing trend of increased demand. Total unit sales in the Edmonton real estate market increased 19.5% in December 2021 compared to December 2020.  “2021 was an incredible year for the Edmonton real estate market, including a record-breaking month in November”, says Realtors Association of Edmonton Chair Tom Shearer.


What’s Next?


According to Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) demand remains strong, but a large number of households are waiting for new listings to show up. Housing markets will face headwinds in 2022, chief among them higher interest rates. While the Bank of Canada has set the stage for a tightening cycle of still indeterminant size to begin as early as April 2022, mortgage rates have already started to move higher, first this past spring, and again in the last few months.


Homes sell faster when buyers’ have less inventory to choose from. However, this market is fluid.   So, if you would like to discuss this market ahead, or would like some advice as to the best homes preparing strategy, please don’t hesitate to call me.


Thank you to our clients for this past year!
