It's a sign Saskatchewan is still the place to be.


Housing prices in the province have gone up all across the board.

In Weyburn the cost for an average home is 112,000 dollars which is an increase of 19% from 2006.

That's a far cry from the increase in cities like Regina and Saskatoon.

It costs over 200,000 for an average home in the Queen City while in Saskatoon the price is over 251,000 dollars.

According to Executive Vice-President of the Association of Saskatchewan Realtors, Bill Madder job growth, population growth and a stong economy are a few reasons for the rise in prices.

Madder adds, he expects the numbers to balance out in the near future.
