CBC Edmonton published an interesting article yesterday talking about condos and apartments in Edmonton. The gist of the article is that ten or so years ago, many young people in the Edmonton area chose to purchase condos because there really weren't many great rental options in the city. Condos have been oversupplied in Edmonton for some time now, and many projects are turning into rental apartments instead of condos, which is leading to more choice and better options for renters, and further weakening demand for condos. Interesting. The REALTORS® Association of Edmonton released their monthly report on the Greater Edmonton area real estate market today saying:
“The overall real estate market is softening as the summer selling season begins to slow,” says REALTORS® Association of Edmonton Chair Darcy Torhjelm. “Average prices are decreasing and that may continue in the rest of the year due to the high inventory levels. It is important for sellers to be prepared to negotiate more and expect to be a bit more flexible with their property prices.”Here's our snapshot of the Greater Edmonton real estate market in July along with our charts showing sales, prices, listings and more.
