Brodie's Real Estate Update - November 2022

I hope you are well and are ready for another Saskatchewan winter! I wanted to take a few minutes of your time to update you on our current market! 

As the Bank of Canada continues to fight inflation with interest rate hikes, we have been asked our opinion on the impact it will have on the Saskatoons housing market. Our short answer is, we see minimal risk to our housing market.

The Saskatchewan economy remains strong and is still the most affordable Province to live in within Canada. Although interest rates have historically had an adverse effect on prices, low supply continues to keep upward pressure on prices. We are seeing a low housing supply in our city (25% below the 10-year average) and with construction costs high and labor short, we do not see this trend changing soon.

Let’s compare this with the last financial crisis in 2007-2008. During that financial crisis, Saskatchewan was one of the only places (State or Province) in all of North America that did not see 2 consecutive quarters (a definition of recession) decrease in GDP. Saskatchewan’s economy will remain strong over the short term. A conference board of Canada article recently stated that “Economic growth in Saskatoon is expected to outpace 12 other major cities in Canada with 7.2 percent in real GDP growth this year and 3.9 percent next year.”

Population growth. Our city continues to grow continually putting pressure on the housing supply. Did you know our largest demographic is the 30-40 age group? Yes, not the boomers. Saskatoon is young, prosperous, and affordable.

Real Estate in Saskatoon, historically, has been a safe and non-volatile investment. Year over year our benchmark price is up 4.4% for the city.

This is a quick look at our opinion, supported by facts. There are a lot of good things happening here. Don’t let the macroeconomic data scare you. If you want a more microeconomic view (or info breakdown for your city if it is Martensville or Warman etc.), give me a call, text, or DM. I am happy to help!

Stay warm!


Saskatoon's Home inventory low - Brodie's March 2021 Real Estate Update

March 2021 -

I hope you are enjoying this change in weather! It sure felt like winter was extra long this year (knock on wood).

The Saskatoon Real Estate market is currently experiencing lower than usual supply. This coupled with low interest rates has created upward pressure on prices. This comment, however, is subjective to the price and style of the real estate being sold. Let me show you what I mean:

This table shows us a metric called "months of supply". Typically 4-5 months of supply is considered balanced. Less than 4 months (Sellers Market) is advantageous to sellers (as it puts upward pressure on prices) and anything above 5 months (buyers market) typically benefits buyers and give them more negotiating power. As you can see, on the right side of the graph, the entire Saskatoon market seems to be in "Sellers" territory (except for 1M+). The table below shows the further break down of the Single family home market vs. the condo market in Saskatoon.

This table is important as it shows a more balanced market in the condo segment and a pure sellers market in the sub 1M+ single family segment. So... what does this mean?? If you are thinking of selling, current market conditions are the best they have been in many years. If this is you, or you know of friends or family looking to sell, let's connect! I would love to share additional market information with you and let you know what marketing strategies, in order to maximize your return, we use in this type of market.

I ran into an amazing article on the website today ranking Saskatoon as the Healthiest City in Canada (among 10 other cities selected). It always feels good to be a part of such an amazing community.



I always love the end of the year because it allows us time to look back on where we came from, and to plan ahead for the future! In this email I wanted to give a visual summary of Saskatoon's housing market broken down into the single family home segment of Saskatoon's individual neighbourhoods. Why? Well, anything you read in the newspaper is a generalization of a segmented and very subjective market, and can potentially be very misleading.


When people ask me:" How's the market?", I usually ask them how much time they have, as "the Market" is very complex and diverse.



Over the last year, Saskatoon has had a slight decrease (-1.18%) in the average value of a home (This figure is up 6.70% over the last 5 years). Our market is very stagnate at the moment. My opinion on this is: "GOOD". With our economy being stagnate, it is good to see housing mirroring this. WHY? This means there is not artificially pent up demand going on. Separate from Vancouver or Toronto's housing market, housing in the conservative land of Saskatchewan seems to be traded as more of a necessity, as opposed to a speculative investment. We are less volatile because of this, we are safe, hell... we are HAPPY and HEALTHY too (see article above).


How did your Neighbourhood hold up over the last 365 days? Take a look a the visuals below.

(*Note – I believe strongly in the Econometrics and the reasoning behind the methodology of the HPI Index. Because the index only compares data from exact resales, newer neighourhoods are omitted until there is sufficient data to present).

As you can see, the market truly is very diverse! Remember this is only for single family homes, as condo data is newer (Condos became more popular in the early 80s in Saskatchewan) and is less reliant for resale data (at the moment).
