The sluggish economy of the Prairie Provinces continues to make its mark on the region’s real estate market and Saskatchewan is no different. While the province boasts plenty of swanky properties, market conditions are less than ideal – the first quarter brought downwards trending prices and sales, with the slide continuing into the summer. This is good news for buyers, however, especially high-end buyers looking to expand their holdings or move into higher value homes, even at the top end of the market.
