City of Regina Real Estate Market Affected by COVID-19

While Regina and Saskatchewan overall were pretty well off during the month of April in terms of Covid-19 cases, our real estate market was largely affected in a few ways. It’s not all bad news as there were still quiet a few sales and new listings but the market was down compared to the same time last year.


Let’s take a look at the City of Regina’s real estate market during a pandemic: 

Sales in the City of Regina were down 50.2%, going from 289 sales in April 2019 to 144 sales in April 2020, and down 51.0% in the overall region, going from 349 to 171 sales. Year-to-Date sales in Regina have fallen 23.6% over last year, decreasing from 814 total sales to 622 total sales.

As a whole, sales and new listings were done 50% but inventory decreased and the sale to new listing ratio remained strong. The City of Regina’s real estate market was definitely impacted by Covid-19. Typically we see less than 200 sales a month during the cold winter months, not in the spring/summer months.

In order to really see the long-term effects of Covid-19 on our market place we will have to continue to watch the market over the next few months and see how things change.
