According to REALTORS® Association of Edmonton Chair Jennifer Lucas,
“The Edmonton market prices have declined in March and we saw a slight decrease in year-over-year unit sales. Of course, with the outbreak of a global pandemic and a hard hit to Alberta’s oil and gas sector, this type of market slowing is not surprising. There have been less sales of single family homes, condos and duplexes than in March of last year. Single family home pricing decreased 4.64%, duplexes are down 6.28%, and condos are up 2.50% year-over-year.”
The following data is a comparison between March 2019 and March 2020 numbers, and is current as of April 2020.
