New listingsslid lower for the third consecutive week as just ninety-seven properties were introduced on the multiple listing service, a drop of eleven from last week, and down the same number when compared with the same week in 2009.
The inventory of active real estate listings continued to maintain a near straight line finishing the week at 1358 units, down just four from last week and up from the 1088 Saskatoon homes that were available at this time last year. This morning, there are 812 single-family homes for sale in Saskatoon and a selection of 472 condominiums, up from 633 and 370 respectively a year ago.
Twenty-one of thirty cancelled or withdrawn listings came back for another go at the market this week. Eighty-one prospective home sellers adjusted their asking price over the course of the week.
Once again, the lower end of the market showed some promise with a higher percentage of overall sales. The average selling price of a Saskatoon home slid lower by more than sixteen thousand dollars to $292,541 to mark its first finish below 300K since mid-August. The six-week average still managed to inch up gaining nearly four thousand dollars on the week and reaching $312,375 to close nearly thirty thousand dollars higher than it was during the same one week period in 2009. The four-week median retreated slightly and dropped about one thousand dollars from last week to $289,950, a gain of roughly seventeen thousand dollars over last year.
Just two Saskatoon home sellers reported a sale price above the asking price, averaging a surplus of just $225. Eleven sellers got their full asking price while sixty-one of seventy-four sellers gave up an average of $10,589 to close a deal.
