Saskatoon real estate: Week in review (September 24-28 2007)

Whether or not you wish to call it a downtrend, there should be little question that the Saskatoon real estate market has cooled considerably when compared to recent months. It’s beginning to feel “normal” again with listings lingering a little bit longer and prospective buyers are once again feeling like they have some options which didn’t exist just a couple of months ago. The inventory of active residential listings reached 631 units, the highest point this year.

Overbidding activity continued to cool with only 20% of Saskatoon homes selling for more than the asking price, down from 30% the week before. A full 71% of reported sales traded below the asking price. The average overbid declined again, to its lowest level since I started the week in review.

This past week’s average selling price was up several thousand dollars from the previous week but was still well below numbers recorded just a few weeks ago.

Here’s a look at the numbers from this past week.
