Did you know that Regina has been declared a buyers’ market by the Conference Board of Canada? According to the Board, the price of resale homes in the capital city is expected to grow by five per cent year-over-year.

In Saskatoon, the region continues to have a balanced home resale market. While sales and listings of existing homes appear to have dropped in May, the Saskatoon area remains positioned for some short-term price growth.

According to the Board, the Saskatoon region is projected to experience a seven-per-cent or higher increase in the price of resale homes over the next 12 months. However, the Board’s data also shows that the average price of a resale home in the city of Saskatoon has dropped by 1.9 per cent to $284,581 in May.

BMO predicts 4.2 per cent economic growth in Saskatchewan this year. The forecasted growth would be the highest in Canada and would be attributed to a rebound in the potash sector, strength in energy and a growing population.

Saskatchewan continues to see positive interprovincial migration thanks to relatively low living costs and bright economic prospects. With the population growth there is also an increase in construction activity that is predicted to continue to rise.
