Saskatoon real estate listing activity up in April, 2012: SRAR


The Saskatoon Region Association of Realtors® (SRAR) released the MLS® residential real estate statistics for April of 2012 today, accompanied by the following release.


he number of listings increased in April, which is typical of the spring market. “Even though the Saskatoon market saw a 20% increase in the number of sales in April compared to April of 2011, a 15% increase in the number of listings year-over-year helped to keep the market in balanced territory,” according to Jason Yochim, Executive Officer of the Saskatoon Region Association of REALTORS® (SRAR). The sale-to-listing ratio is a good indicator of the balance between buyers and sellers. A current ratio of 56% indicates that slightly more than one out of two houses listed are selling. “By comparison, at this same time in April of 2007 the sales to listing ratio was at 90% which helped fuel a significant increase in prices in Saskatoon,” says Yochim.



Year-to-date, sales in the price range between $200,000 and $300,000 were down 3% compared to last year while sales in the $300,000 to $500,000 price range were up 34%. “There is still healthy activity over $300,000 with a good supply of product, however, the selection is tighter in the $250,000 to $350,000 range.”



The total residential volume year to date was $555,154,716, up 25% when compared to this time last year. In April, the average price of a home in Saskatoon was $341,486 while the median price was $335,000.



The average sale price is determined by dividing the total dollar volume of sales by the total number of units sold across the Saskatoon market while the median price is determined using the mid-point of all sales listed. “It is important to remember that these numbers should not be applied to a specific style of home in a specific neighborhood. If a consumer is interested in data more specific to their situation it is advisable to contact a professional REALTOR® for an accurate determination of price,” Yochim summarized.
