A great tip on the Top 10 Most Expensive Neighborhoods in Saskatoon:
Fewer people tried to sell their Saskatoon houses for the first time in 2013, Point2 Homes’ Annual Housing Market Report shows. While there’s still a good number of homes to choose from, only 1,325 new listings entered the market last year, a 34% drop over 2012. The number is very close to the figure in 2010. On the other hand, asking prices continued to grow steadily, going up by 11% year-over-year.
