Sales definitely cooled off in July in the Edmonton area; single-family sales were down 3% from last July and 28% from last month, taking us back to slightly below the normal level of sales for this time of year. The average price of single-family homes increased 8.4% from last year, and the median price was up 7.4% to $437,950. I'll update this post later this week when the REALTORS® Association of Edmonton releases their monthly report on the housing market. We are now officially a balanced market for the first time since January 2021. Home sales are still up ever so slightly from last July but down 24% from last month. The cumulative days on the market have increased by 8 days, so sellers should expect their homes to sit on the market longer. Marketing and pricing their homes well will help sellers find success, but gone are the days of going into multiple offers as soon as a home hits the market, giving buyers more time to make smart purchasing decisions.
