Today, we'll be comparing the real estate market changes from September 2022 to September 2023 across four key communities: Red Deer, Sylvan Lake, Lacombe, and Blackfalds.
Red Deer Real Estate Market
In Red Deer, the real estate inventory has seen a significant decrease of 43.64% compared to last year. This shift has created a seller's market, offering a unique opportunity for homeowners looking to sell. On the flip side, buyers have fewer options, making it essential to act quickly. The average price for detached homes has increased by 6.25% to $423,798, making it a win-win situation for both buyers and sellers in the Red Deer real estate market.
Sylvan Lake Real Estate Market
Moving on to Sylvan Lake, the real estate inventory has remained relatively stable, with a minor decrease of 0.86%. However, new listings have surged by 50%, providing a broader range of options for potential buyers. Interestingly, the average price for detached homes has decreased to $449,897, offering a unique entry point for buyers. Meanwhile, sellers can take comfort in the median price increase of 3.03%.
Lacombe Real Estate Market
In Lacombe, the real estate inventory has dropped by 41.86%, but the average price for detached homes has skyrocketed by 26.87% to $386,647. This trend suggests that well-priced homes are in high demand, making it an excellent time for sellers to list their properties.
Blackfalds Real Estate Market
Lastly, in Blackfalds, the real estate inventory has decreased by 32.20%, but new listings have seen a modest increase of 9.09%. Sales have also increased by 10.53%, and the average price for detached homes has risen by 6.99% to $365,970. These statistics indicate a balanced market, favorable for both buyers and sellers.
Across all communities, the Central Alberta real estate market is leaning towards a seller's market. However, the increase in new listings and the stability in some pricing segments offer opportunities for buyers as well.
