Market Report - July 2022

Market Report - July 2022

Posted: Thursday August 4, 2022

EASING SALES HELPING SHIFT MARKET TOWARD MORE BALANCED CONDITIONS

July sales eased to 1,439 units reflecting a year-over-year decline of nine per cent contributing to the year-to-date decline of nearly 10 per cent.   While sales have eased, last year was a record year, and with year-to-date sales just shy of 10,000 units, levels are still well above long term averages for the province.

New listings trended down from levels seen over the past few months and last year’s levels.  Nonetheless, the pullback in sales has outpaced the decline in new listings supporting a shift toward more balanced conditions.  This also caused inventory levels to continue to trend up for the lows recorded earlier in the year.  While inventories pushed up to 7,142 units, levels are still nearly 11 per cent lower than what was available in the market last year.

“As expected, gains in lending rates are having some cooling impacts on the housing market causing consumers to seek out more affordable options.  The challenge will be product availability in the lower price ranges of the market. Supply levels are improving compared to earlier in the year, however, the year-over-year decline in inventory has been driven by homes priced below $400,000,” comments Chris Guérette, CEO of Saskatchewan REALTORS® Association.

The recent shifts help push the months of supply up to nearly five months, reflecting far more balanced conditions compared to what was experienced over the past four months.  While conditions are not as tight as they have been, with less than five months of supply, the market is still experiencing the tightest July conditions since 2009.

Relatively tight conditions are supporting further price gains in the province at a time when many cities in Canada are seeing some retraction of prices.  In July, the benchmark price reached $335,100, slightly higher than the previous month and over five per cent higher than levels recorded in July 2021.

“Moving forward, further rate increases are expected as concerns over inflation persist in the market. This will continue to weigh on housing markets across the country,” said Guérette.   “However, markets like Saskatchewan are expected to fare better than some of the larger centers in the country as they never experienced the same level of price growth throughout the pandemic.”

City of Regina 

July sales remained relatively strong in the city, supporting year-to-date sales of 2,379, a one per cent gain over last year’s record pace.  At the same time, new listings did ease compared to the previous year, but it was not enough to cause any significant shift in inventory levels which remained similar to last month and over 13 per cent lower than last years levels.

When considering the sales and inventory in the market, the months of supply remained above three months in July, still low relative to historical standards and last years levels, but an improvement over the levels seen earlier this year.  The relatively low months of supply continued to support some modest upward pressure on homes prices, but at rates slower than what was experienced in the early spring. As of July, the benchmark price reached $330,600, slightly higher than last month and nearly four per cent higher than levels reported in July 2021.
