Overall, homes sale in Regina during the entire year of 2020 was extremely positive. We had experienced many years prior where the list to sale ratio sat well below 50%, forcing a strong buyers’ market. And while home prices haven’t increased by much, the potential to successfully sell your home if you put it on the market should be motivation enough for someone who is debating whether or not to sell their home.
