Edmonton Realtors Summer Market Update

Edmonton Realtors Summer Market Update

Summer is the peak season for listings and sales activity…

Sales are slowing from last month; however, Edmonton real estate prices are holding strong.

With affordable Edmonton prices, and the recent BOC interest rates drop by .25 points on June 6th, we are still seeing strong demand for Edmonton properties.

Realtors Association of Edmonton, July 2, 2024: There were a total of 2,847 residential unit sales in the Greater Edmonton Area (GEA) real estate market during June 2024, an 11.4% decrease from May 2024, but still 10.0% higher than June 2023.

“The market as a whole is at its plateau for the season,” says REALTORS® Association of Edmonton 2024 Board Chair Melanie Boles. “We’re likely going to see the number of sales continue to decline as we approach the end of summer, but our average prices don’t seem to be declining as much. In fact, prices actually increased in the semi-detached and condo market, which could indicate those properties are attractive to investors at the moment.”

Detached homes averaged 29 days on the market, decreasing four days from May 2024. Semi-detached homes recorded a one-day decrease with 28 days on the market, and row/townhouses’ days on the market decreased two days to 25. Apartment condominiums average days on market remained at 42. Overall, all residential listings averaged 30 days on the market, a month-over-month decrease of 3 days and an 11-day decrease when compared to June 2023.
