Coming off of three very strong weeks, Saskatoon homes sales slipped lower on both a weekly and an annual basis. Local real estate agents reported 86 firm residential transactions to the Saskatoon multiple listing service®, well down from the 99 deals that were recorded last week. We finish the period with four fewer sales than we saw during the week last year.

 

Meanwhile, the number of new listings added to the MLS® also slipped lower. A total of 203 residential properties were entered into the system, down from 221 last week, but up from 190 of the same period of 2016.

 


Saskatoon residential MLS sales and listings for the week of May 21-27, 2017


 

MLS® inventory continued to move higher, this week reaching 2174 listings, which is just one listing shy of last year’s peak number. In 2016, total active listings reached their high point for the year around the end of June. That’s about the time when MLS® inventory reaches its highest level most years. If this year follows typical patterns we should top out around 2200-2250 active listings before the inventory starts a slow but steady decline through the balance of the year. Today we have 1195 single-family homes for sale in Saskatoon, up 34 units from this time last year. Condo inventory is at 823 for an annual increase of 30.

A strong showing of entry level buyers (13 sales under $200,000) ushered the weekly median price lower to $330,250 while an absence of sales above the $700,000 mark (and only five deals above 500K) brought the average sale price to one of its lowest levels this year. It closed the week at $326,848. After growing by more than $20,000 over five weeks the six-week average price finally took a downward turn as it slipped from $364,096 last week to $357,806, however, it still managed to record a seventeen thousand dollar increase when compared to closing numbers from the same week last year. The four-week median price also went down falling from $348,000 last week to $345,000. That number is also up from a year ago, but by less than nine thousand dollars.

Three lucky sellers closed a sale for more than their asking price picking up an average bonus of $2,900. Six more wrapped up a contract at their asking price. The remaining 77 transactions recorded a sale price that was below list by an average of $10,568.

The Saskatoon real estate market recorded its biggest sales week this year as the number of firm residential trades hit 99, up by nine when compared to the previous week and beating sales for the same week last year by 17 homes. This was the third consecutive week in which sales were up on an annual basis. The puts us at 280 unit sales for May, up from 234 at the same time in May of 2016. Year-to-date, a total of 1327 Saskatoon homes have been sold, just shy of the 1336 units that had sold by May 19, 2016.

 

New listings continued to come on strong as Saskatoon real estate agents added 221 new listings to the multiple listing service®, up just three compared to the previous week, and down by three from the same period last year.

The number of local homes available to buyers through the MLS® system grew by 20 on both a weekly and an annual basis to reach 2135. This is the fourth week in a row that saw some moderation to the year-over-year increases in inventory levels. Today, we have 1169 single-family homes for sale within the city limits, up 21 from a year earlier. The number of condos for sale has grown to 808 for an annual increase of 18. On the whole, sales and listings metrics look fairly similar to last year.

A more typical balance of sales at the upper and lower end of the Saskatoon real estate market brought the weekly median price down from some lofty levels. It slipped lower by 25K this week to $345,000. The weekly average price had stronger staying power and slipped just $500 from a week earlier to $365,010. The six-week average price continued to make gains for the fifth consecutive week. It reached $364,096 which is its highest level this year, and higher than its been during this particular week for the past five years (for the fourth consecutive week). It’s higher than it was a year ago by sixteen thousand dollars. After climbing steadily for six consecutive weeks, the four-week median price fell lower by $4,500 from a week earlier to settle at $348,000 for an annual gain of twenty-one thousand dollars. Interestingly, our price measures are out of sync with MLS® Home Price Index data which shows Saskatoon single-family homes having dropped by 2.63% from a year ago. According to the same index, apartment prices are lower by 1.45%, and townhomes down 4.44%.

Overbid activity fell flat as just one seller found a buyer willing to bid up their price. They picked up an extra $2100 in closing their deal. Another six managed to complete a sale at their asking price. The remaining 92 sales required some give and take which netted this week’s buyers an average discount of $11,764.

Coming off of a soft April which saw residential sales slip nearly 17 percent from the same month last year, the month of May is showing promising signs of making up some of that shortfall as sales have shown modest year-over-year gains for the second consecutive week. Saskatoon real estate agents reported 90 firm home sales this past week, down one from the week before, and four ahead of numbers posted during the same period last year.

 

After posting serious annual gains last week, the number of Saskatoon homes added to the multiple listing service® fell lower this week by 52 properties to 224. That’s down 13 units from the same week of 2016.

 


Saskatoon residential MLS sales and listings for the week of May 6-13, 2017


 

The inventory of Saskatoon homes for sale on the MLS® continued to move higher and added 63 units to its numbers by the close of business Friday. Today’s final numbers come in at 2115, up by 46 from a year earlier. A closer look at the major housing categories shows that buyers have a selection of 1146 single-family homes, up from 1117 at the time last year. Condominium inventory sits at 808 for an annual increase of 31 units.

 


Saskatoon active residential listings on the MLS at May 13, 2017


 

Average and median prices continue to move higher buoyed by very strong activity at the market’s upper end. With more than a third of this week’s sales surpassing the $400,000 mark, the weekly median price moved up twenty-six thousand dollars to $370,000 and reached its highest point this year. Two sales that contributed over $2 million to the week’s dollar volume drove the weekly average price to $365,635 for a seven-day gain of nearly 15K. The six-week average price inched higher growing by about a thousand dollars from last week to settle at $359,834. That marks its fourth consecutive upward move to put it ahead of where its stood at this time last year by roughly 10K. Meanwhile, the four-week median price grew by twenty-six hundred dollars to $352,500. That’s also a new high for the year. It’s up twenty-three thousand dollars from a year earlier. It’s worth noting that these gains are somewhat out of sync with the Canadian Real Estate Association’s MLS® Home Price Index, which, at the close of April showed a 2.6 percent year-over-year decline in its “Composite Index”.

There was some strong overbid activity with five lucky sellers bagging an offer above their asking price. Those overbids paid an average bonus of $6,480 but most of those wins went to one seller who picked up a $30,000 surprise after the dust settled. Another 75 sellers gave up some dough and agreed to a discount averaging $16,739 but one listing that went $300,000 below list skewed that number a fair bit, particularly in area 2 which recorded an average underbid of more than twenty-seven thousand dollars. The ten remaining sales were reported to have sold for asking price.

The Saskatoon real estate market continued to heat up in lockstep with the weather as local agents reported brisk activity in both sales and new listings. A total of 91 firm deals were reported to the MLS® over the past week, up from 88 a week earlier, and topping sales for the same week last year by six. New listing activity was particularly strong as the flood of month-end expired listings re-entered the system. This week, 276 residential listings were processed, the largest number for any week this year. That topped last week by almost 60 units and grew by 38 when compared with the same week last year.

 


Saskatoon residential MLS sales and listings for the week of April 29 - May 6, 2017


 

Active MLS® listings in the residential category increased to 2052, up 33 from the week before. Last year at this time there were 1992 Saskatoon homes for sale on the multiple listing service®. At the close of business this week, buyers had a selection of 1106 single-family homes to choose from, up from 1079 a year ago. Condo inventory fell by just a couple of units from a week earlier and settled at 785 for an annual increase of 39 units.

The weekly average price of a Saskatoon home slipped lower from a week earlier. It closed the week at $349,891 for a weekly drop of four thousand dollars, even as higher end activity caused the weekly median price to spike nearly 20K to reach $344,000. Meanwhile, the six-week average price headed upwards taking a forty-five hundred dollar weekly increase to reach $358,848 for a new annual high. It’s actually at its highest point in five years, for this particular week on the calendar and ahead of last year by more than thirteen thousand dollars. The four-week median price followed a similar path taking a weekly increase of almost 10K. That brought it to $349,900 for an annual increase of nearly $18,000.

The number of homes that traded fell short on an annual basis for the third consecutive week as Saskatoon real estate agents reported 88 firm transactions to the multiple listing service®. That number is up by two compared with the previous week, but down by 14 compared with the same week a year ago. On the heels of a first quarter which saw sales increase marginally over the same period the previous year, April looks to have been a bust. With the final business day of the month behind us, the MLS® is showing just 316 firm sales, down from 381 last year.

 

Meanwhile, new MLS® listings continue to flow at typical rates for the season. Local REALTORS® added 215 residential listings to the MLS® system last week, up 15 from the week before and down five from the same week last year.

 


Saskatoon residential MLS sales and listings for the week of April 23-29, 2017


 

The number of active MLS® listings available for purchase in the residential category grew again, as expected. This week wrapped up with the inventory showing its largest year-over-year gains since mid-November of last year. The week closed with 2029 properties for sale within the city of Saskatoon, up 30 from a week earlier. That amounts to an annual increase of 104 homes. I should point out that numbers recorded during the same week last year would have already had month-end expired listing taken out of them. There are 55 active MLS® listings on the system today (April 30) that are scheduled to expire at midnight tonight that should close that gap some, depending on the number of listings that are extended today. The current inventory is largely made up of the two major property types. Today, we have 1069 single-family homes for sale, up from 1026 a year ago. The condominium category shows 787 active listings, up from 732 at this time last year.

 


Saskatoon active residential listings on the MLS at April 29, 2017


 

While some pricey homes traded hands this week, including one Saskatchewan Crescent home that went for $1.5 million dollars, strong activity at the market’s entry level (there were 13 sales at or below 200K this week) drove both the weekly price measures lower. The median sale price for the week slipped more than twenty-five thousand dollars to $330,000. The weekly average fell nearly twenty-four thousand dollars to $353,321. Even as the weekly numbers dropped lower, the six-week average price continued to edge upwards and reached its peak for this year at $354,233 for a year-over-year increase of about 13K. That is the highest close for this particular week in the past five years. The four-week median price grew for the fourth consecutive week and reached $340,000 for a weekly gain of just one thousand dollars, finishing up from a year ago by nine thousand.

Two resale sellers found a buyer willing to pay more than their asking price, one buyer overbidding $3,100 and the other padding their offer with an extra $5,200. There were 12 list price deals and 74 sales that went below the asking price by an average of $11,164.

Saskatoon real estate sales rebounded this week after showing a sharp decline during the previous period. Local agents brought 86 firm residential sales to the MLS® system, up from 54 a week ago, but down from 101 for the same week last year. Still, 86 sales falls just shy of this year’s most productive week when 89 Saskatoon homes traded hands. The new listing activity also grew to reach 200, up from 178 a week earlier and falling slightly short of the 202 new listings brought to the multiple listing service® over the same period last year.

 


Saskatoon real estate statistics for MLS home sales from April 16-22, 2017


 

The inventory of Saskatoon MLS® listings continued to head upward, stopping just short of the 2000 mark at 1999. That’s higher than it was at the close of the previous week by 36 homes, and up 37 from a year ago. Today’s totals show 1073 single-family homes being available to buyers. That selection tops last year’s by about 50. Condo inventory is at 759 today, 15 fewer than were available a year earlier.

 


Saskatoon active residential listings on the MLS at April 22, 2017


 

This week’s price figures are significantly skewed by upper-end activity, much like last week. The weekly median remained high at $355,000 and the weekly average took a huge jump to $385,856. While sales of high-end homes were generally strong, some extra punch to the average came from two sales, one at $2 million dollars, and the other at $930,000. This is just the third time that Saskatoon has produced a seven figure sale with a 2 at the front end. This is fairly remarkable given that it happened for the first time just last September. All three sales were at the Willow’s Golf Community. In any case, this week’s sales pushed the six-week average price for a Saskatoon home to $352,278. That’s up about eight thousand dollars from last week, and about thirty-five hundred dollars higher than it was a year ago. The four-week median price also took some gains growing more than thirteen thousand from last week to reach $339,000. That’s just a thousand dollars below where it was a year ago.

The number of “at list price” sales doubled this week to ten, and the number of homes that sold above list dropped from two to one. That single seller saw a $2,200 bonus. The remaining 75 trades went for less than the asking price netting those buyers a hefty discount of $15,688. Like this week’s prices, the average discount was skewed by large discounts on those two big sales. Together, those two homes went $415,000 below their asking price contributing some big dollars to the discount pool.

A shortened work week brought softer home sales and a sharply lower number of new listings for the Saskatoon real estate market.

 

Local agents reported just 54 firm Saskatoon home sales to the multiple listing service® this week, down from 88 transactions the previous week, and also well below numbers generated during the same week last year when 82 sales were reported. New listings slipped lower to 178, which is well down from the 253 homes listed the week before, and 42 fewer than were listed during the same week in 2016.

 


Saskatoon residential MLS sales and listings for the week of April 9-15, 2017


 

The number of Saskatoon real estate listings showing an “active” status in the residential category continued to grow, this week reaching 1963 properties by the close of business Thursday. That number is up 32 from a week earlier and tops inventory numbers recorded at the end of the same week a year earlier by 18 homes. As the week wound down, buyers had a selection of 1054 single-family homes, which is 34 more than were available a year ago. The number of available condominiums slipped lower to 747, down from 769 last year.

The six-week average price dropped $2500 compared to the previous week and settled at $343,806 for an annual decline of about fifty-five hundred dollars.

This was one of those weeks during which all things were looking up for the Saskatoon real estate market. Sales grew. New listings exploded. Active listings inventory grew. Both long term price measures headed higher. Maybe it was the previaling temperatures, which were also nicely up.

 

Saskatoon real estate agents reported 88 firm residential sales to the multiple listing service® this week to once again set a new weekly sales record for the year, which in and of itself is nothing spectacular at this time of year when sales numbers should be consistently growing. This week’s numbers beat the previous week by seven sales and were up when compared against the same week last year by nine.

 

The number of new listings for the week grew to a whopping 253 which is the highest number of new listings for any seven day period since the week of September 3, 2015. It’s a hefty number, 53 higher than last week and up nearly two dozen compared to the same week a year earlier, one which had also produced an impressive listing spike.

The number of residential listings for sale on the Saskatoon MLS® also spiked higher as 77 Saskatoon homes where added to its numbers by the close of business Friday. It now sits at 1931 listings, up from 1854 a week earlier, and ahead of the 1884 properties available at this time last year. The greatest gains were seen in the condo category when oodles of listings that expired the previous week came rushing back on the market. Condo inventory grew by more than five percent this week from 705 to 745 to finish the week ahead of last year’s levels by 20 homes. Single-family homes also moved up from 999 a week ago to 1023 today. That’s also up from 987 a year earlier.

The median sale price for the week stayed stable at $310,000. The only number that edged lower this week was the average sale price that slipped just a few hundred dollars to $341,263. Meanwhile, the six-week average price grew by about four thousand dollars on a weekly basis to reach $345,593 which is actually up from a year earlier by around a thousand dollars. The four-week median price inched up a few thousand dollars from a week earlier to close the week at $317,000 taking an annual loss of seventeen thousand dollars.

Saskatoon real estate sales reached a new annual high this week as local agents reported a total of 81 firm residential deals to the multiple listing service®, up nine from the previous week, but down by 13 sales when compared against numbers generated during the same period last year. Meanwhile, month end listing activity was quite strong as 200 new residential listings hit the MLS® system for a weekly gain of 37. These numbers were down from the same week last year when 214 new listings were added to the system.

The number of active residential listings available to Saskatoon home buyers took a slight dip as month end expired listings prevented the numbers from growing. This morning, there are a total of 1854 active listings, which is ten fewer than there were a week ago. Still, that number is enough to show year-over-year inventory gains for the first time since early February. At the close of the same week last year, total inventory sat at 1833. The largest growth is actually in the single-family homes category where we have 999 properties for sale, up from 955 a year ago. Condo inventory shows a rare year-over-year decline with 705 active listing today, versus 710 a year earlier.

The six-week median price made some modest gains growing by about three thousand dollars from last week to reach $341,627 and finishing the week with an annual increase of about six hundred dollars. The four-week median price fell just two hundred dollars from a week earlier to $314,250 to show an annual loss of nearly 18K.

Saskatoon real estate agents posted a total of 72 residential sales to the local MLS® system this week, up three from last week to beat numbers generated during the same week last year by five. New listing activity remained strong as well. While those numbers slid lower by 15 homes when compared to activity from the previous week, they were well ahead of the 141 properties listed during the same period of 2016.

Inventory levels continued to move higher as we’d expect at this time of year. This morning there are 1864 Saskatoon homes for sale on the multiple listing service®, which is up 27 units from a week earlier, and down just 11 from levels recorded at this time last year. That is the smallest year-over-year decline since late February and it leaves us in a spot where we could easily see annual gains again with one big week. For the first time in months, the number of single-family homes for sale in Saskatoon sits higher than a year ago. Today we have 988 listings in that category, up ten from last year. Condo inventory now sits at 724, down four from this time in 2016.

Entry level sales carried the week. In fact, seven residential sales below the $100,000 mark set the stage for one of our lowest weekly median prices this year at just $308,000. With no sales recorded above $635,000 the weekly average also fell lower to $314,465. Meanwhile, the six-week average price of a Saskatoon home slid to $338,366 to finish the week just three thousand dollars lower than it was at the close of the same week last year. The four-week median price managed to make some gains as it grew by twenty-five hundred dollars from the previous week to reach $329,500. This measure lost $2500 on an annual basis.

Two lucky sellers found themselves managing a bidding war that drove their price higher, one getting just a hundred dollars over list, and the other bagging a bonus of $11,000. On the flip side of the negotiating table, 63 buyers held firm for a discount that averaged $11,707. The remaining seven sales recorded a price that was equal to the seller’s list price.

It’s starting to look like spring has arrived. With plus zero temperatures predicted for most days over the next couple of weeks, it’s about to get wet. A little preventative maintenance is in order if you’d like to keep the spring melt off from ending up in your basement.

 

Here are our top ten tips to prevent a basement flood.

 

  • Remove snow from around your foundation and window wells.
  • Most lots drain along the outside edges. Remove snow from these areas.
  • Keep the snow in your yard because shoveling it onto streets or lanes could block drainage.
  • Clear snow and ice from around the bottom of your downspouts and extend downspouts at least two metres so water drains away from your foundation.
  • Where possible and safe, help clear snow, ice, and debris from the catch basins in your area.
  • Check your roof and eaves troughs for excessive snow.
  • Consider hiring a professional to clear snow from your roof.
  • A roof rake may help you to clear snow and debris from the edge of your roof.
  • Consider using sandbags to block water from entering low-lying areas beside your foundation.
  • If water is getting close to your foundation, use an appropriate pump to drain it to the gutter or back lane.

Best wishes for a dry spring.

 

Norm
