“It’s great to see an increase of just over 30% for new listings last month, but our overall inventory is still lower than last year by 15%.” says REALTORS® Association of Edmonton 2024 Board Chair Melanie Boles. “Unit sales numbers are still strong, but not outpacing the new listings; they’re actually very balanced with each other and that’s positive for both buyers and sellers.”

Detached homes averaged 40 days on the market, decreasing 8 days from February 2024. Semi-detached homes averaged 35 days on the market, a decrease of 7 days from the previous month, and row/townhouses’ days on the market decreased 11 days to 34.

*Please note – Each year, in line with statistical best practices, the MLS® HPI undergoes a comprehensive review by Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA). The results can lead to changes in the available data and historical composite or aggregate benchmark prices could be revised higher or lower. Learn more here or see the FAQ document here.
