Hey, friends! It's OFFICIALLY summer - YAY! I know I'm excited! Are you doing any travelling? Camping?  We'll be staying in Regina for most of the summer as we will have a newborn but are going to try and get away one weekend to go camping! My brother bought a camper this year and we're very much looking forward to borrowing it! Other than that, bring on the patio drinks, backyard fires, beach + pool days! This summer will be so different for us as Amelia will be 3 and is interested in SO much more than she was last year!

But let's dive in to why you're really here.. you want to know what's going on in Regina Real Estate! And I wish it was exciting news, howev...

And just like that we are almost half way through 2019! The year has started off strong with each months total sales surpassing the previous years monthly sales, however, in May we saw the first decline. But BARELY. May 2019 was quite comparable to May 2018 -- only 10 sales shy of having the same total sales of May 2018. Although it was less than last year, the total sales for 2019 are far higher than 2018 - almost 10% higher. 

The one thing that is important to note for 2019 is that we are seeing fewer new listings hit the market compared to new listings in 2018. The active listings remains lower as well. If we were to purely bas...

In real estate, most people focus on an average or median price of a home when it comes to statistics. However, this is not the best way to follow market trends for a city. For example, over the period of a month, if you have 1 sale that is $1m, the average price will be skewed. Same as if you have 5-10 sales of homes in a neighbourhood for under $100k. It doesn't remain consistent throughout the months or years and when viewing statistics in the city as a whole can be completely inaccurate. 

The best way to follow market trends is with the HPI or Benchmark Price. I personally like the Benchmark price as the price is factored off certain properties of a home. If we...

Hey, friends! Holy jeeeez! I feel like it was just yesterday I was writing March's Regina Real Estate Stats??!! This year is going by WAY too quickly. But, the weather is warming up and there is no complaining over here about that! 

It's safe to say that the spring market is HERE. Sales were up 16.8% for April compared to April 2018. And not just April, but our YTD sales are up, too! Last April, we were very much in a buyers market... BUT the stats this year say we are in a balanced market! The sales to new listings ratio is 45, 2019 YTD. (Anything below 40 is a buyers market, above 60 is a sellers and in between is considered a balanced market).  This is good...

Hey, friends! Another month has passed which brings another month of stats! It's hard to say which way the real estate year will go this early on, but so far this year is looking better than last! Sales were up this month compared to March 2018 - quite a bit actually! Mar 2019 saw 210 sales compared to 176 in Mar 2018... that's a 16% increase! Although this can seem like good news, homes are taking an average of 73 days to sell in 2019; much longer than the 56 average days on market in 2018. Additionally, the composite benchmark price is still on a downward climb - just about 5% decrease compared to 2018 YTD. With a higher total number of sales thus far in 2019 ve...
