Saskatoon real estate: Week in review (July 14-18 2008)

Total active residential listings on the Saskatoon real estate market fell just short of breaking the 1,500 mark and settled at 1,499 by the end of the week, a net gain of 38 units when compared to the previous week’s end. A total of 175 properties hit the new listings board, including 35 that were cancelled and re-listed during the same week, and about 20 condo conversion units that went MLS. At present, there are 961 single-family homes and 433 condominiums displaying the active status on the Saskatoon MLS. The balance of available units included vacant lots, mobiles, semi-detached and duplexes.


Unit sales in the single-family homes and condos category came in at 71. Overbid sales edged up marginally from last week with 5 homes selling above list, but the average overbid dropped substantially to reach its lowest level since the week of January 14-18. 59 buyers managed to negotiate a purchase price below the seller’s asking price with an average underbid of just over $10,000.


Average selling prices took a large jump from the previous week, up just a little more than $12,000 to settle at $304,254.

Licensed in 1993, Norm brings a wealth of experience to TeamFisher. He has worked in every imaginable capacity including sales agent, office manager, team leader, broker and now, broker/owner. 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.
