Housing sales activity in the Edmonton Census Metropolitan Area (CMA) slowed in May according to the REALTORS® Association of Edmonton. Housing sales dropped 10% when compared to May 2012. Sales of single family detached homes (SFD) were down 14.4% Y/Y and duplex/rowhouse sales were down 20.3%. In contrast, during the same period, condo sales were up 4.9% compared to May 2012.

 

“There is a lot of activity in the real estate market at this time of year but some buyers are having difficulty finding their perfect home,” said President Darrell Cook. “While inventory levels are rising they are still below traditional norms and there is a shortage of attractive SFD inventory available at the lower priced end of the market. That has held some buyers back. First time buyers may have had to buy in the condo market where they can still find a home in their price range.”

 

There were an estimated 1,169 SFD sales in May (based on 1,082 reported sales) through the MLS® System with 512 estimated sales of condos (474 reported) for total residential sales of 1,824 units (on reported sales of 1,689). Sales figures in the month are estimated to account for late reported sales and to ensure accurate comparison to prior period sales figures. 

 

Listing activity picked up in May with 1,969 SFDs listed (up 1.3% Y/Y) and 963 condos (up 0.3% Y/Y) for an overall total of 3,188 residential properties coming into the MLS® System in May. At the end of May there were 6,028 residential properties available; up from 5,294 from last month. There were an additional 1,569 rural properties in the MLS® System inventory.

 

The demand for housing has buoyed up prices in the Edmonton area. The all-residential average price was up 2.4% from April and up 1.3% from a year ago at $356,807. The average price of SFDs was up 3.9% to $418,110 in May but condo prices dropped 2.4% from a month ago to $237,664. The condo average price is down 3.97% in May compared to last year.

 

“Increased activity at the higher end of the market drove up the average price of SFDs,” said Cook. “At the same time, the wide variety and number of options in the condominium sector continued to exert downward pressure on the average price of condominiums. There is housing available for everyone at every price point but buyers may have to adjust their expectations to be able to buy right now. Their REALTOR® can help them identify property that meets their needs.”

 

The average days-on-market for residential property was down to 45 days and the sales-to-listing ratio was 53% in May.
