I'm curious as to the rental rates and job prospects out east, I can afford the hit in wages as the cost of living here in Calgary is out stratching my means of earning a living.
I live just east of Regina.
If you are looking to buy a house in Saskatoon good luck. They are going through what Calgary went through last year. My cousin who lives in Warman, about 15 mins North of saskatoon, put there house up for sale and with 2 hours, yes 2 hours, they sold their house for $16,000 more than their asking price, yes once agian $16,000 more than their asking price. There is a new sub division being built just out side of saskatoon and the lots are starting at $168,000 just for the lot.
I couldn't tell you about rental rates though if you are seriously interested in moving go to www.306motorclub.com
and there are alot of people from saskatoon on thier that will let you know about the rental rates there.
As for Regina my buddy is paying $600 a month for a 2 bedroom apartment in a really good nieghbourhood which includes water and sewer.
