A brisk week for new additions to the MLS® systembrought the total number of residential properties for sale in Saskatoon higher by nearly 50 units over the course of the week. The end result was a listing inventory that was on par with what was available a year ago, 973 residential listings. Today, buyers have 559 single-family homes and 330 condos to choose from. At this time last year, those numbers stood at 537 and 387 respectively.
Cancelled and withdrawn listings remained fairly low at just 19 homes. This week, 22 home sellers adjusted their asking price. Another 35 MLS listings expired from the system without finding a buyer.
All five house price measures that you see on this site edged higher this week as the average selling price of a Saskatoon home gained more than 10K to reach $329,829. The weekly median price followed along but didn’t move as far. It grew by $6,500 from the previous week to close at $309,950. The six-week average price pulled ahead by just over $2,000 to reach $320,337 for an annual gain of almost $15,000. Meanwhile, the four-week median price bounced back from last week’s decline and grew by more than 6K from to hit $309,900. That’s good for an annual gain of about $16,000.
Overbid sales continued to represent just a fraction of the market, and those that did sell over their list price didn’t reach the craziness of last week’s numbers. Just three of 56 sellers got more than they were asking this week. Another nine cashed in with a full price offer while 44 buyers managed to grind their seller for a bit of a deal achieving an average discount of $8,460.
