Saskatoon Land is accepting offers on a variety of multi-unit parcels in Aspen Ridge, Evergreen and Kensington communities, as well as accepting offers on industrial lots in the Southwest Industrial area.
Interested parties are required to submit a completed Multi-Unit Purchaser Application Form or Industrial Purchaser Application Form which indicates the desired parcel(s) and offer price. The submission offer is non-binding and in no way obligates the applicant to purchase the property in question and is not in any way binding upon Saskatoon Land. It is for information purposes only. Saskatoon Land will review the form and contact interested parties to confirm whether or not Saskatoon Land will consider the application for further negotiation. Saskatoon Land reserves the right to negotiate with only those parties it determines, at its sole discretion. Saskatoon Land also reserves the right to amend or abandon any property listing without accepting any Multi-Unit or Industrial Purchaser Application Form. Once Saskatoon Land has entered into negotiations with interested parties, offer acceptance will be subject to compliance with the terms and conditions.
