Our preliminary look at the real estate market in Edmonton shows single-family home sales were up slightly over last year for the third month in a row. 859 single family homes were reported sold in June, up 2% from last year. Condo sales were down 2.4% from last June - 328 condos were reported sold. The average sale price for single-family homes was down 5% to $417,863 and the median price was down 4.7% to $379,900. The average sale price for condos was down 2% to $245,715 and the median price was down 1% to $220,000. The average price/square foot for single-family homes was down $16 to $269 and for condos was down $5 to $225. I will update this post when the REALTORS® Association of Edmonton releases their monthly report on the market in a few days.
