Edmonton's real estate market had a strong start to the spring season this March with significant sale activity increases across all property types. Home prices have also grown both on a month-over-month and year-over-year basis with surburban and freehold properties experiencing the greatest growth.

Notice: Year-over-year comparisons for March and the next two months will be exaggerated by the temporary downturn from the outbreak of COVID-19 in March 2020.

Average sold prices for all property types increased by 14% year-over-year to $391K. This increase was due to both an increased share of higher value detached and townhouse properties as well as price growth. Prices of detached homes and townhouses increased by 13% and 11% year-over-year to $458K and $348K, respectively. Condo apartments also saw year-over-year growth of 5% to $229K. However, after accounting for the temporary effects of COVID-19 last March, condo prices have actually remained stagnant this past year.

Home sales in the Greater Edmonton Area reached 2,441 home sold this month, a 109% increase vs. March. 2020. Sales of detached homes and townhouses rose by 118% and 117% to 1,586 and 287, respectively. Condos also experienced sales growth by 78% YoY to 512 transactions. While new listings have increased along with sales, inventory continued to decrease as buyers outnumber the number of available sellers.

Rising mortgage rates pose a dual-edged sword to Edmonton's housing market and other real estate markets throughout Canada. In the short-term, buyers are looking to purchase and lock in their mortgages, prompting a surge of demand for properties. In the long-term, however, a rise in mortgage rates will lower the purchasing power of potential buyers and pose a tailwind to housing prices. This effect is limited to fixed rate mortgages - variable mortgage rates are still remaining stable as the Bank of Canada has signalled for no rate increases until 2023.

In Calgary, the total commission rate is structured as 7% for the first $100,000 of a home’s sale price and 3% on the remaining balance. Seller agents usually get half or 50% of this total commission with buyer agents getting the other half. To calculate your real estate commission for Calgary, see our calculator below.
