So what’s happening in the Edmonton real estate market as of October 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 COVID

New listings in September were up 9% while sales were down 2% vs. the previous 4 years. Sales have been consistently high since September 2020, however recent months have seen the end of that trend.

Edmonton Housing Demand Sept 2022

The total number of homes for sale is down 6% compared to the average of the previous 4 years. Inventory has increased quickly in the last 5 months back closer to average levels.

‘Months of supply’ has climbed above 4 months which is down just 9% vs the previous 4 years.


Fewer months of supply make conditions more favourable for sellers, while higher months of supply are more favourable for buyers. The current level would typically be seen as a ‘balanced market’ between buyers and sellers. 


Overall, Edmonton prices are down 2.6% over last month, and up 2.2% over September last year.

What does this mean for sellers?


Right now supply is slightly low relative to previous years while demand is average, which means it is a more balanced market for people thinking of selling their home. Sellers who price their home well will still 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 slightly 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 down 11% in September vs. previous years, while new listings were up 10%.

Edmonton Detached Homes

Detached homes were the best performing property type since the start of the COVID pandemic as buyers look for more space, however that trend is starting to reverse.
