Saskatoon real estate: Week in review (July 9-13 2007)

Saskatoon real estate sales resumed the hectic pace we’ve become accustomed to this week after recording a fairly significant drop in unit sales the previous week. 119 Saskatoon homes were reported sold, almost double the number reported the week of July 2-6. New residential listings slightly outpaced sales with 127 new listings coming on the market.


The market did continue to produce some hopeful signs that some of the heat may be coming off. The average overbid fell short of the $20,000 mark for the first time since the week of April 9, and more than 20% lower than was recorded just last week. The percentage of homes which sold above the asking price was also lower at 63% and the difference between the average list price and the average selling price of a home was just $10,240. We have to go all the way back to the week of March 26 to see a list price to sale price ratio which is smaller than this one.

Finally, you may notice that the average recorded selling price of all Saskatoon homes declined for the third week in a row. Realistically, July could bring the first drop in the average selling price of a home this year.



Are we going to see this trend continue through the summer months? Is “the boom” over, or is this just a much needed breather for buyers? Please let me know what you’re thinking.

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.
