Total active residential listings on the Saskatoon real estate market saw a net gain of 28 units this week, increasing to 1,461 from 1,433 last week. A total of 194 properties were listed for sale, including 51 that made a repeat entry into the system (cancelled and relisted). Today, there are 943 single-family homes and 412 condos bearing the “active” status. An additional 41 homes are flagged as “conditionally sold.”
Sales of Saskatoon houses and condos were up about 10% from last week with a total of 75 properties hanging a sold sign. At the same time, demand was down about 37% compared to the same week last year when 119 houses and condos changed hands.
The average selling price of a Saskatoon home dropped again for the third consecutive week to $292,185, the lowest number we’ve seen since the week of April 28 - May 2. Most often, I’m warning about the potential for skewing in the weekly stats, but I don’t see that so much over the last couple of weeks. I think there’s little doubt that prices have dropped some as motivated sellers battle it out for a limited number of buyers. There actually seems to be a decent selection of single-family homes in some nice areas available for under $300,000.
