Saskatoon real estate: Week in review (June 23-27 2008)

New Saskatoon real estate listings came in at their lowest point in the past month with 199 residential properties listed for sale on the MLS including 41 condominiums and 145 single-family homes. Even still, the inventory of active listings pushed higher to settle at 1,440 units, a net gain of 53 properties compared to the close of the previous week. As of this morning, there are 931 single-family homes and 408 condominiums (1,339 total) in the “active” inventory.


You’d also have to go back a month to find a slower sales week. Total sales in the residential category sat at 72 units for the week with 65 of those properties falling in the single-family and condo categories.


Overbidding continued to slide off the map with just 3 of all sales recorded reporting an “above list” selling price. 11 sellers met their buyer at full list price, but 51 engaged in a negotiation which resulted in an average underbid of $12,026, the highest discount on record since we starting including this figure in the week in review.


Average selling prices remained remarkably high given the stiff competition sellers are facing but the gap between list and sell prices widened substantially to $9,263.

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.
