2012 SOLD Edmonton Real Estate Market Summary-KITTY BITS brought to you by The CATS MEOW in Re/Max Real Estate

More numbers.  It seems that these days all we get to know are the numbers, but they can be so important, can’t they?  Have you ever visited the Canadian Real Estate Associations National Average Price Map?  It shows us exaclty how we are doing with comparison to our sisterly provinces. Which one surprised me the most?  LOL

THE NORTHWEST TERRITORIES.

British Columbia 2012 average sales price of house: $498,205,

Alberta  2012 average sales price of house: $363,340, Edmonton 2012 average sales price of house

Saskatchewan 2012 average sales price of house: $284,346,

Manitoba 2012 average sales price of house $249,852,

 

The KITTY BITS above shows some of the more important numbers like

MLS sales in 2012, the average days on market for listings, the average sales price of houses and condos, and just how many homes sold over that lovely $1 Million dollar mark.

I hope you’ve enjoyed this post of Kitty Bits and hope to see you back again real soon, now that would be the Cats Meow.

The Canadian Real Estate Market Predicitions 2013 – Kitty Bits

Tuesday, January 29th, 2013

So all the numbers are in and we have some excellent indications of what will be happening in the Real Estate Market across Canada. The picture below shows some of the more important numbers and as you will find out in later posts, the numbers in Alberta come in just the same as we are seeing across Canada.  I absolutley love that there is an almost neutral belief in rising housing values.  As you will find out in later posts, Alberta is leading the way with a higher percentage.

Friday, January 18th, 2013

This weekend, January 19 & 20, 2013, Edmonton and the City of Edmonton will host the annual Edmonton Pet Expo in the Expo Center of Northlands.

I hear that Buttercup can handle the board and for an English Bulldog, that is some fancy paw action.

Dockdogs however has really caught my attention.  For those of you that know me well, I have a dockcat; Sailor.  I have seen her jump into the pacific northwest and hang out, swim with the seals, and hop back onto the floating thumbs.  Should be a show worth catching.

Wiener races, Understanding Dog Body Language, Dog Sports and Flyball, Zero Gravity Disc Dog and Petting Zoo with Pony Rides. ( I sure hope there is a baby kangaroo)

Saturday 10-6 and Sunday 10-5

Be sure to pick up winters copy of Edmonton Pet Connect and check out our ad on the Services Page.
