In Saskatchewan, most housing types saw some small improvements in affordability. Although measures remain slightly higher than their long-term averages, RBCindicates that affordability in Saskatchewan isn’t likely to be much of a factor in the short-term.
“Affordability, therefore, is unlikely to be a factor restraining Saskatchewan homebuyers at this point. Indeed, they were very active in the fourth quarter, with resales surging nearly 9% from the third quarter to their highest levels in almost four years. Strong economic growth will continue to benefit Saskatchewan’s housing market in 2012.”
