Manitoba Real Estate Market Update: June 2021
June was another hot month for Winnipeg real estate! The increase in new listings and active listings month over month did little to curb the seller’s market in Winnipeg as average selling prices continued to steadily climb, especially in the low-rise sector with detached homes and townhouses seeing double-digit year-over-year increases in average price. Another key indicator of the strength of house prices is the total-sales-price-to-total-list-price ratio, which saw a rise from 98.6% in 2020 to 104.7% this June.

Comments from WRREB President Kourosh Doustshenas: "A true hallmark of this year has been the unprecedented buyer demand for all property type listings with major percentage gains in sales from 2020 […] 2021 dollar volume gains remain in the double-digits and represent strong upward price movement compared to 2020."
