School is around the corner but did YEGRE fail the grade?

Edmonton Real Estate Market Reports for August 2016

School is right around the corner and with that, comes the end of the push for Edmonton families to get into their new homes by the start of the school year.  The last little bit of holidays and vacations are coming to a close, but is the Edmonton Real Estate market fading?  No, not so much. lol. If you watch the news, local or national you will get some supporting stories and some contradictory stories, but in the end, they are all stories.  Thoughts coming out of someone elses’ imaginations, studies, education and opinions.  However, there’s one thing you can’t change and that’s the facts.  Is Edmonton doing as poorly as they say it is?

Judge for yourself!

Home Sales by Price Range: The highest percentage of properties are and have the tendency in Edmonton to sell in the $300,000-$399,999 price range, and this year 34.17% of homes have sold in this price range. Second position goes to the $400,000-$499,999 price range at 21.10%.  Third place is the $200,000-$299,999 and 20.36%. These haven’t changed very much from month to month as this works in with Edmonton average earnings per family.

Prices have gone up for this year by 0.77%. Give it a few months and I predict we will see the same prices as last year, with a small reduction in the high end luxury market in Edmonton
