Saskatoon real estate: Week in review (February 25-29 2008)

New Saskatoon real estate listings topped 100 for the fourth week in a row but brisk sales activity prevented inventories from making any significant gains. We finished the week with a total of 370 active residential listings including 204 houses (single-family homes) and 127 condominiums. Important note: due to pending changes with the Saskatoon MLS system, no sales were processed on Friday so active listings and sales figures from this week are slightly off.


A total of 92 Saskatoon homes traded hands, a slight decline from reported sales last week.The percentage of homes that sold above the asking price took a jump forward to about 37% of all sales processed. The average overbid increased as well, pushing towards $15,000 and reaching its highest level since the week of November 19-23, and more than double what it was for the same week last year.


The average selling price of a Saskatoon home exceeded the average asking price for the first time since the week of October 1-5. On average, residential properties fetched about $800 more than the asking price. Still, 39 savvy buyers managed to negotiate a below list purchase at almost $7,600 below the asking price.


Notable sales


  • 1,000 square foot four-level split with a double garage in Lakeview will set you back $369,000.
  • Lakeview apartment at 878 square feet goes $19K over list at $199,000.
  • East College Park bungalow of 1,040’ with no garage is $310K.

Norm has written a weekly review of the Saskatoon real estate market for more than 650 consecutive weeks which may make him the most consistent industry blogger in the world.

Norm is known for his passion for technology and can most often be found exploring and experimenting with the next big thing in real estate marketing. He was the first Saskatoon real estate agent to promote a home online and has been an early adopter of new technologies ever since. “Everything about this business has changed over the past 20 years, and it will happen again in the next ten. An open mind and a curious attitude are all that’s needed to continue to find new ways to serve our clients by delivering a faster, smoother, worry-free transaction,” says Norm.

In his spare time, Norm enjoys Crossfit and cycling, some years accumulating over 2,000 kilometres on the road. He’s a strong supporter of the Royal LePage Shelter Foundation and enjoys raising funds by joining fun, fitness-related initiatives like the Grouse Grind for Shelter. In 2015, he trekked the Peruvian Andes to Machu Picchu. In 2017 he walked the southern highlands of Iceland across mountains, sand, snow, ice, lava fields and forest for seven days. Collectively those initiatives raised over a million dollars for Canadian women's shelters.
