2018 Christmas Update

Where does the time go? It feels like I was just writing this Christmas update a few months ago and another whole year has passed. I really don’t know where December has went but it has been a busier than normal month for real estate in Saskatoon, at least for this Saskatoon REALTOR®!!

This year has been filled with ups and downs and a few more challenges than usual but overall it has still been a very good year for me and mine. I now have a 4 year old (wait, WHAT?!) who keeps us on our toes. He started preschool this fall and it has been a really nice change for him. He is learning Spanish for the next 2 years at a Spanish Immersion Preschool which has been such a great experience.

I had some health struggles last year and into this year but found out what was wrong and am moving forward more empowered than ever. Health struggles are nothing new to me after a lifetime of misdiagnoses so finally getting to the bottom of it was a more of a blessing than a curse. Onward and upward!

It has been another busy year for some travels as everyone knows how much we live for and love our traveling. We started in Mexico, took a trip to Florida to see friends and spent as much time as we could at our little piece of paradise cabin up north. My husband and I also got away for a trip to Croatia (a MUST if you love traveling!) and his work AGM in Vienna, Austria. It was nice to travel like we did pre-child but we sure missed Grayson.

The Saskatoon real estate market is certainly down from where it was last year in terms of average house price and activity in general but 2019 is projected to be a better year for home sales in Saskatoon.  The average house price is currently $332,717 and we have sold 4,368 homes this year compared to 4,368 the year before.

As always, if you are ready to buy or sell please consider me as your Trusted Saskatoon REALTOR® and if you have anyone else in the market to buy or sell a home in Saskatoon and surrounding area I always appreciate the referrals.

Here is to a healthy and prosperous 2019 to all of you, my valued customers and friends.
