Last week sales activity was rampant with 110 firm sales (75 single family, 32 condominiums) reported to the Saskatoon MLS, with an average price of $328,383. Two weeks ago there were 96 sales in Saskatoon (73 single family, 22 condominiums) with a skewed weekly average price of $377,473 because of high end market activity. Weekly sales activity of late have been all hovering around the century which ultimately is a good sign, while the average days on market is right around 30.
In the month of May 2013 there were 429 total sales in Saskatoon, averaging just over 107 sales/week, with an average price of $355,473. In May 2012 there were 459 total sales, with an average price of $335,774. Monthly comparisons year to year for the month of May suggest that sales prices went up 5.5% from 2012 to 2013 and average days on market are very similar at roughly 30 days. The average sales price under asking has shrunk this year almost 9% from $6623 in 2012 to $6037 in 2013.
Currently there are 1358 (805 single family, 466 condominiums) active listings in Saskatoon which is a very healthy amount of inventory. Last week there was a very impressive 206 listings posted to the Saskatoon MLS. We are starting to see the listing inventory climb incrementally each week, and it should continue over the short term.
