“Once the distractions of summer are over, the market usually picks up with buyers looking to move in to a new home before the snow flies”, says Chair of the REALTORS® Association of Edmonton. “However, it is possible we didn’t see a strong performance for unit sale this September because the Bank of Canada raised interest rates twice this summer, putting some downward pressure on buyer purchase intentions. Despite this, consistent average sale prices last month throughout the Edmonton area suggest the local market enjoys continued health.”
The number of all residential units reported sold was 1,341. This represents a month-over-month decrease of 13.04% and a year-over-year decrease of 6.35%. The number of single family detached units sold was 812. This represents a decrease of 12.69% compared to August 2017 and a decrease of 10.28% compared to September 2016.
