We help provide home buyers and sellers with the data they need to be successful. When you have access to accurate and relevant data, you can be more confident in setting the price of your home and selling it or buying at the right price.
With many important factors to consider (what kind of home you have, what community etc.), it’s important to look specifically at what the housing market is doing in your neighbourhood.
Bōde sellers are more successful and actually make more money, on average, than the rest of the market. We are also here to make sure you have the information you need to make the decisions that are right for YOU!
So what's happening in the Edmonton real estate market as of January 2024?
Let’s start with a Macroeconomics view
To understand what’s happening in the real estate market you have to look at supply and demand.
The best proxies for supply and demand are:
New supply: New Listings (i.e. the number of homes recently listed for sale)
Total supply: Inventory (i.e. the total number of homes listed for sale)
Sales (i.e. the number of homes recently sold)
Supply & Demand
Months of Supply (i.e. the number of months it would take to sell all current inventory at the current rate of sale)
These metrics are the best indicators of the health of the real estate market. Let’s look at what they show us.
Home sales in December 2023 were strong.
Home sales in December 2023 were strong. Sales were up 23% vs the average of the last 5 Decembers.
