On the heels of one of spring’s softer sales weeks, the Saskatoon real estate market recorded its first triple-digit week as local agents reported 102 firm residential deals to the MLS®. That’s up 16 units from the previous week and it tops sales for the same period of 2016 by seven.
New MLS® listings also came on strong, as they typically do during the first week of any month, when those listings that expired at the end of the previous month come back for another go at the market. This past week, local REALTORS® added 247 Saskatoon homes to the database of the multiple listing service®, way up from the previous weeks total of 203, and topping volume for the same week last year by seven.
After reaching a new record high at the close of the previous week, the number of active residential listings for sale on the Saskatoon multiple listing service® retreated marginally. The closing total of 2159 amounts to 15 fewer homes than were available a week earlier. That is up by 62 from this time a year ago. The annual increase is proportionally split across the two major housing categories as single-family homes inventory grows to 1186 from 1129 a year ago, and available condos come in at 818, up from 775 at this time last year.
Solid activity levels at the lower end of the Saskatoon real estate market drove the weekly median price down to $313,250 to reach its lowest point in a few months while a good showing in the $500,000 plus range, including a sale above one million dollars brought the weekly average price higher to $351,000. Both of the longer-term measures softened. The six-week median price slipped nearly 6K to $351,946 but finished up annually by about two thousand dollars. The four-week median price finished the week at $340,000 which is down 5K from the previous week’s close, and up 6K from a year earlier.
