Edmonton Real Estate Market Update July 2022

Written by Alan Kelly, Bōde’s Chief Economist

It’s officially summer! In Edmonton, home sales were still up in June compared to previous years. Although there has been a slow down compared to the last few months, it’s still a great time for those thinking of selling as data shows sales and prices are still significantly up compared to the average of the last 4 years. 


When you are thinking of buying or selling your home in Edmonton, it is important to understand what is happening in the housing market.
Obviously, there are many important factors to consider (what kind of home you have, what community etc.), so it’s important to look specifically at what the market is doing in your local area.


Bōde makes buying and selling your home a streamlined process offering significant time and cost savings along the way. 

We are also here to make sure you have the information you need to make the decisions that are right for YOU!

What’s happening in the Edmonton real estate market as of July 2022?

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.

Edmonton continues to see strong sales and low inventory in the aftermath of the COVID outbreak.

New listings in June were up 18% while sales were up 24% vs. the previous 4 years. Sales continue the strong trend they’ve been on since July 2020, however they are slowing in recent months.

The total number of homes for sale is down 11% compared to the average of the previous 4 years. Inventory has increased quickly in the last 3 months back closer to average levels.

‘Months of supply’ is still relatively low at 3.1 months which is down 31% vs the previous 4 years. However it is starting to increase as inventory increases and sales slow down.


Fewer months of supply make conditions more favourable for sellers, while higher months of supply is more favourable for buyers.


Overall, Edmonton prices have are down 0.1% over last month, and up 8.3% over June last year.

What does this mean for sellers?

Right now supply is low relative to previous years, and demand is high which means it is a good time to sell your home. Sellers who price their home well will be able to sell quickly. However, your specific property value will be determined by market forces both within your community and against similar active listings.

What does this mean for buyers?

There are currently fewer homes for sale than there have been in previous years. This means active buyers need to move fast to beat other buyers to available listings. One way you can move faster is by booking viewings directly through Bōde, so you don’t have to wait for a realtor to schedule your viewings or write your offer.


Market conditions vary substantially by property type, community and price range

Above, we’ve looked at the overall market for Edmonton, but different segments are performing very differently. Let’s look at a few examples.


Sales for detached homes were up 15% in June vs. previous years, while new listings were up 21%.

Detached homes have generally been the best performing property type since the start of the COVID pandemic as buyers look for more space.

Detached prices are down 0.2% over last month, but up 8.8% over last year.



New listings of apartments were up 9% in June compared the average of the previous 4 years, while sales were up 38%.

Apartment prices have been on a steady downward trend since 2015. This month saw a small recovery in prices, they are up 0.9% over last month, and 0.9% over last year.

New listings of attached homes were up 30% while sales were up 35% in June (compared to the previous 4 years). 

Edmonton townhomes

Attached prices are up 0.6% over last month, and up 8.0% over last year.

What really matters is what’s happening in your specific local property market. There are some communities and price bands where detached homes are performing better/worse, and the same goes for apartments.
