“Affordability and value are key drivers across all property segments. Buyers can be discerning, but with stable prices and potential interest rate increases around the corner it is important for buyers to get off the fence”, says James Mabey, REALTORS® Association of Edmonton Chair. “Patience is a virtue, however, as a seller if you are getting good feedback, but aren't attracting an offer it may be time to refresh with your REALTOR® whether a price correction may be necessary."

3 Average prices indicate market trends only. They do not reflect actual changes for a particular property, which may vary from house to house and area to area. Sales are compared to the month end reports from the prior period and do not reflect late reported sales. The RAE trading area includes communities beyond the CMA (Census Metropolitan Area) and therefore average and median prices may include sold properties outside the CMA.
