“The Edmonton market prices have declined in June and we saw a slight decrease in year-over-year unit sales,” says REALTORS® Association of Edmonton Chair Jennifer Lucas. “Of course, with the outbreak of a global pandemic and a hard hit to Alberta’s oil and gas sector, this type of market slowing is not surprising. There have been less sales of single-family homes, condos and duplexes than in June of last year. Single family home pricing decreased 0.20%, duplexes are down 2.49%, and condos are down 7.57% year-over-year.”
Single family homes averaged 54 days on the market, a one-day increase from last year. Condos remained stable at 66 days on the market while duplexes averaged 64 days on market, a two-day decrease compared to June 2019. Overall, all residential listings averaged 59 days on market, the same year-over-year, and decreased by seven days compared to the previous month.
