If you’re anything like me I know this time of year can get crazy. The finish line for teachers and kids is in view, work projects are ramping up for summer, sports (like YEG Gymnastics) are still happening.
I hope in the middle of all your craziness you are able to find moments to rest and reflect. Journal about gratitude, go jump on the trampoline with your kids, send a card to a friend, watch a sunset, go to the lake and turn off your phone (that’s a hard one)!
Whatever craziness you find yourself in, I hope you find time to continue to fill your life with good things. ✌️
My monthly SHOUT OUTS / THANKFUL THOUGHTS

Simon and Emilie, congrats on selling your home so quickly and for so much!!
With the inter-provincial migration in and the relative value we have here in Alberta compared to the rest of Canada we are still seeing our pricing move up (to $511,000 for the average single family home).
An interesting item to watch is that our sales volume is down month over month but still up year over year. We all know demand pushes pricing, so it will be something to watch over the coming months. Our days on market are down to 23 for single family homes, which means homes are spending less time on the market. We are still seeing homes sell quickly and we are still seeing many multiple offer situations.
It’s a dynamic market and one we are keeping our eye on, but it is still strong (in fact it is currently one of the hottest markets in Canada).
Now, for the stats…
Last month’s prices for Edmonton and Area:
– Single Family (SF) prices are UP 11% year over year, and UP 1.4% month over month to $511,000
– Condo prices are UP 3% year over year, and DOWN 2% month over month to $237,000 – the condo increase we saw last month retreated a bit, but still better than last year
Inventory levels: SELLER’S MARKET Total Inventory sits at 6,468properties for sale, DOWN 13% from last year, and UP 22% from March Total Sales for last month were 2,919, UP 2% from last year, and DOWN 10% from March Days on Market for single family homes sits at 23, down from 27 last month and 30 last year
Months of Inventory are at 2.2 MONTHS OF INVENTORY
up from 1.6 MOI last month
We are STILL sitting in a Seller’s Market (anything under 4 months is a seller’s market)
