The number of properties for sale in the Saskatoon area is up 15 per cent from this time last year.

There are currently 1,553 homes for sale in the city and surrounding area according to new figures from the local realtors association.

While supply of new homes is up 30 per cent year-over-year, sales are roughly flat and Saskatoon Region Association of Realtors CEO Jason Yochim says price is of concern to potential buyers.
