SRA celebrates success of inaugural conference

Nearly 300 attendees joined the Saskatchewan Realtors Association (SRA) at its inaugural State of Real Estate conference in Saskatoon on Tuesday.

The conference offered five sessions with guests from the Royal Bank of Canada, the C.D. Howe Institute, Regina and Saskatoon Region Home Builders’ Associations, Saskatchewan Landlords Association, and numerous local leaders, including the mayor of Regina.

“Our association wanted to create a space for larger conversations around growth and how real estate is an important foundation to those discussions for our province,” says Chris Guérette, CEO of the SRA. “Real estate is so much more than your average home price and average days on market. It’s about welcoming more people to our communities, setting the stage for growth, and ensuring we can attract and retain investment in our province.”

From insights into the current state of the economy and the housing market in Saskatchewan to conversations surrounding purpose-built rentals, housing shortages and red tape reduction to promote future development, State of Real Estate had a session for everyone, say organizers.

“Saskatchewan has unlimited potential, and it is crucial not to shy away from these discussions,” says Guérette. “Our association is pleased to provide the platform for this important discourse and is already looking forward to 2023 in Regina!”
