Where to buy real estate in 2019: Edmonton

Lots of commercial investment happening in Edmonton now bodes well for jobs and housing in the future.

Is there upside potential in Edmonton? The city is experiencing a five-year-low in sales activity for all types of housing but, despite that, some analysts think the market will see a rebound. 

According to statistics released by the Realtors Association of Edmonton (RAE), average home prices were down by 4.4% year-over-year in March 2019. The biggest declines—both in sales activity and in prices—were in condos and strata units (such as townhomes in multi-family complexes), with a 7% drop in sales activity, year-over-year, as of February 2017. Single-family home sales, on the other hand, were down just 2.7% year-over-year as of February—great, but definitely not quite as bad, either.

Michael Brodrick, chair of RAE, recently spoke to the press about the city’s current real estate market conditions. He stated that the still slow market is due, in part, to external factors beyond the city’s control, particularly last year’s implementation of the federal mortgage stress test.

But a rebound may be on the horizon—and it’s not necessarily tied to the price of oil. According to Colliers, a Canadian-based global commercial real estate firm, approximately 2.7 million sq. ft. of industrial space is under construction in and around Metro Edmonton. This is in addition to the 2.2 million sq. ft. of industrial space that was completed in 2018.

The surge in commercial land and space is due, in part, to the cheaper land costs offered in and around Edmonton. (Taxes outside Edmonton also hover around $1 to $2 cheaper per square foot, for even more cost savings.)

A contributing factor is how accessible these spaces are now that Edmonton has Anthony Henday Drive, a commuter highway that circles the city (it was completed in 2016).

In fact, Ford Motors recently completed its new 403,000-square-foot distribution centre, located just outside the city of Leduc, which is 35 kilometres south of Edmonton’s city centre. This new build means that Ford nearly doubled its space in Edmonton. Plus, additional ventures are either moving to or expanding their operations in this once-oil-dependent city. Aurora Sky, the licensed cannabis grower, recently completed its second big project in the Leduc area.

Over the next year, other big names have big plans for commercial space in and around Edmonton, including Amazon’s 1-million-square-foot distribution centre, as well as Champion Pet Foods’ 371,000-square-foot production facility, both scheduled to open in 2020.

Why should buyers and sellers care? Because an investment in business infrastructure means jobs, and jobs mean dependable wages—and predictable, stable income is arguably the number one factor when it comes to an increase in housing market activity.

To make a smart real estate decision, however, buyers need to factor in current conditions, future possible growth and whether the neighbourhood offers good value. This year’s Where to Buy Real Estate report will help you do that.

Edmonton’s top 3 neighbourhoods to buy

1. Montrose

This year neighbourhoods in central and the northern Edmonton topped the list, with Montrose, in Northeast Edmonton, taking the No. 1 spot this year.

“Typically, neighbourhoods in northeast Edmonton are less desirable because they are closer to the refineries,” explains Peter Fuchschuber, an Edmonton-based Zolo real estate agent. But Montrose is near the North Saskatchewan River and just below the Yellowhead Highway, which is part of the Trans-Canada Highway. “Being close to the highway and the river is a big plus,” Fuchshuber says.

Demand for this area shows in the numbers. Despite the overall slump in sales activity in Edmonton, homes in the Montrose area are selling for 97% of their list price. “It certainly shows that demand is meeting supply, which is a real issue these days.”

2. Alberta Avenue

Five of the top 10 neighbourhoods on this year’s list are located in Central Edmonton—including Alberta Avenue, which secured the No. 2 spot partly because the $269,500 average price for old, outdated homes in this area make it an ideal spot to “buy, rip-down and rebuild,” Fuchshuber explains. Flippers and custom builders have also realized this, however, and now home buyers looking in this community can choose between the DIY route, or buying a “skinny-house infill,” says Fuchshuber. “I find many families are turned off by the traffic, but for those who want to be right downtown, this is a great community.”

McCauley, Delton, Eastwood and Parkdale are other top 10 neighbourhoods to look into. Again, the housing stock in these communities tends to be dated, making it ideal for those who don’t mind putting in the work to update and remodel, in exchange for a better deal on their purchase price.

3. Prince Charles

Prince Charles in northwest Edmonton is experiencing a bit of a surge in value because of city plans for Blatchford, the old city-centre airport. This 536-acre plot of land is just north of downtown and the city has approved plans for the redevelopment of this area into a mixed-use urban community. “The city plans to build low-energy neighbourhoods comprised mostly of condos and townhouses, although there may be some single-family homes,” Fushshuber says. “These plans are fancy, and include the construction of a canal, and [will] utilize the most technically advanced housing construction methods currently available.”

The pre-selling of Blatchford has meant that surrounding communities, like Prince Charles, are also getting a boost. And as a veteran realtor, Fuchshuber has his own shortlist of good buys in 2019. “McKernon is my number one pick because houses are just snapped up in this area. It’s really close to the university and not too far from the river.”

A close runner-up for Fuchshuber are the communities in the Heritage Valley District, such as Chappelle, Cavanagh, McQueen, and Rutherford. “The planned LRT line that will run through these communities is scheduled for completion in five years and the access to this public transit system will really boost housing values in this area.”
