Housing affordability will be an issue going forward in the Saskatoon real estate market as prices incrementally increase every year. It’s time to consider older forgotten about neighbourhoods on the other side of the river. There has been an assumption for years in Saskatoon that the east side of Saskatoon is more prestigious. However with those bragging rights of an east side address, residents do pay a little more for their homes and taxes.
There are numerous revitalization projects happening in Saskatoon, housing project initiatives and little tax breaks, which are all incentives to try something new. It’s no secret that the west side of Saskatoon has become a haven for new businesses and a cheaper way for those who wish to live and work near downtown.
The river landing has been developed, the bus barns in Caswell Hill are being leveled for green space, and Riversdale broke a single year record for opening up the most businesses in one calendar year. These are just a few reasons why you should consider investing in the west side of Saskatoon.
