Saskatoon real estate week in review for November 23-29, 2019 (edition #664)


As November was drawing to a close, the Saskatoon real estate market held steady with 59 residential sales reported to the MLS®, the same number as the week before, and up by ten compared to the same period last year.


New listing activity fell sharply lower with just 74 Saskatoon homes hitting the system. That’s 40 fewer homes than were listed the previous week, and down by 16 when compared to the same period last year.

Residential MLS® inventory in Saskatoon took its largest tumble in weeks as it fell to just 1530 homes, down 50 from last week’s close, for a year-over-year decline of 101 units. This morning, there are 919 single-family detached homes for sale in the city, just two more than could be found on the multiple listing service® a year ago. There are also 530 condominiums for sale in Saskatoon, 74 fewer than were available at this time last year.

The weekly median sale price of a Saskatoon home fell lower to $319,500 while the weekly average headed in the opposite direction to close the week at $338,351. The six-week average sale price took another gain this week to finish at $335,248. That’s down about five thousand dollars from the close of the same week last year. The four-week median price fell lower to $325,000 to record an annual decline of twenty-five hundred dollars.

After four weeks of no overbid sales, a couple of eager buyers came out to offer more than the asking price, hoping to edge out competitive bids. A $1-million dollar home sold $99 above the asking price, while another, this one a sub-$200K home attracted an offer the was $10,100 above the asking price. Meanwhile, 51 of 59 Saskatoon home sales reported this week traded below the list price and netted those buyers an average discount of $14,017.


Here is a breakdown of what the sales to listing price ratio looked like on this week’s sales. Please note that those sales that do show a sale price that is greater than the list price are all new properties that spent some period of time on the market, and most likely included additional improvements that were not reflected in the original list price. We report these to you as “at list price sales”, which is likely too generous in some cases, but it’s simply not practical to obtain the full details of each sale.

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.

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.
