Saskatoon two-storey house prices crack $400,000
On track to set record for number of sales
It's a milestone. But whether it's good or bad depends on whether you're buying or selling a home.
The average price of a two-storey home in Saskatoon broke the $400,000 mark. The price is $408,250, according to a Royal LePage price survey. This compares to $399,750 for the same period last year.
"The market is being driven by great employment rates in the city combined with continuing low interest rates," said Norm Fisher, who is with Royal LePage. Fisher said that the city is also on track to set a record for number of properties changing hands.
Saskatoon is close to the front of the pack for two-storey price houses. A similar home in Regina sells for $346,450; in Winnipeg, the average is $341,863. But – a two-storey home in Vancouver is averaging $1.2 million. Toronto is the next highest, at $733,317.
