Edmonton has been working hard to get out of the Real Estate Doldrums. The market struggled to pick up momentum through the tail end of 2018 and started slow in 2019. In May we saw glimpses of a closer to normal Real Estate Market and we are encouraged by the last three months. Our Agents have commented on how difficult it is to complete every sale. With strict lending policies, buyers looking for a great deal, and prices not meeting sellers expectations, you need a pro working for you.

Consider giving one of our well supported, experienced, and trusted Real Estate Agents a shot in selling your home or helping you find the perfect place a shot.

Here is a summary of July's Activity:

We’re going to talk about the neighbourhood of Blue Quill in south west Edmonton.

  • Prior to 1971 the area was active farmland, with 18 farmsteads being worked. Urban development began almost immediately after the annexation in ’71 and some of the farms were in use up until 1973.  Most of the housing was in place by 1980 although some building continued into the early 2000’s.


  • Today Blue Quill is a mix of single and semi-detached homes, condos and apartments.  An average list price of $269,000 is ideal for first home buyers.  Don’t let the lower list price fool you. The neighbourhood is very walkable and has good transit services.  A great Lifestyle score with solid Family, Safety and Recreation amenities make for an ideal family

  • Riverdale is located minutes from downtown in the flats, with the North Saskatchewan River on its South and East boundaries.  Back in the 1880’s, being only a couple of kilometres downstream from Fort Edmonton; settlers were quick to develop this area. Easy access to the river spurred development of a lumber mill and its famous brick yard.


  • Today, Riverdale possesses almost perfect Community Scores in the Family, Recreation and Lifestyle categories. Good transit, Walkability and a diverse age spread amongst the residents, all add to the desirability of the neighbourhood.  Throw in its unique location, and the average listing price in Riverdale comes in at just over $500 thousand.
