Here is our update on the Edmonton real estate market. (Previous week’s numbers are in brackets). For the past 7 days:

Wow! The market is busy!! Sales this week are at about the same level as the peak of the market last year. We have definitely seen an increase in out-of-province inquiries, from investors and people considering moving. It's a very stressful time for buyers; things are moving extremely quickly and depending on what they're looking for, buyers may need to be prepared to move on a moment's notice.

This Spring is going to be insane. With our housing so cheap compared to Toronto and Vancouver, and very low inventory, we certainly have a lot of appreciation to catch up on this year in order to align with other large cities. We're closing in on half a million average for SFD, and I think we could hit $600K to $700K before we know it. At that point, we'd still be a bargain to most investors! Anecdotally, I'm hearing that it's becoming the norm for bidding wars for detached homes, and no conditions.
