The all residential average sale price continues to remain strong at $384,504 up almost 2% over the previous month and over 3% from July 2015. At $450,366, single family homes experienced an increase in average price of over 3% from both the previous month and year. The 2% drop in average condo price month-over-month can be partially attributed to the sale of several luxury properties in June that bolstered the average price. The average condo sale price for July 2016 of $257,482 remains the same as July 2015. The average duplex/rowhouse sold for $348,050; down 2% year-over-year and down 1% month-over-month.
“We can attribute much of the average price increase to the strength of high end home sales. The median sales price for all residential is up less than a percent from last year. We are continuing to see strong stable pricing throughout the Edmonton region despite slower sales.”
At 1,515 units reported sold, all residential sales in the Edmonton CMA were down 15% m/m and down 16% year/year. 938 single family homes were reported sold in July 2016, down 16% from the previous month and 16% from July 2015. Reported condo sales at 401 were down 13% over June and 25% from the previous year. Duplex/rowhouse sales at 154 in July are up 11% year-over-year but down 10% month-over-month.
“The July slow down in unit sales is typical. May and June remain the busiest months of the year when it comes to sales volumes. Every year we traditionally see a slow down in July and August followed by an uptick in September,” says REALTORS® Association of Edmonton Chair.
The number of days the average home in the Edmonton Census Metropolitan Area (CMA) took to sell in the month of July was 56.
