Regina Real Estate Surpasses Expectations from Last April

April 2021 was an exceptional month for Regina real estate as you may be reading all over the news. With sales in the city up almost 200%, it leads you to question what is going on. The sales look so incredible this April because last April the market came to a halt as the entire city was locked down due to the pandemic. The numbers are skewed because of an extreme low point in the market followed by an extreme high point the following year.

The SRA tracks 24 different real estate markets across the province, all of which seems to be thriving with sales given the current situation and all are experiencing low levels of inventory. In Regina, we are seeing an influx of luxury-style properties sell far quicker than we have seen in at least 5 years. With an influx of sales over $700,000 our “average home price” is also bound to increase. This average home price increase does not apply to the average home on the market, which has only seen a slight increase in value across the province if you compare the HPI Benchmark price to the Average Home Price.
