Manitoba actual property: Younger consumers shifting to distant work way of life driving Winnipeg actual property market
A new report is predicting that Winnipeg will see a seller’s market when it comes to the 2022 real estate landscape.
Re/Max’s 2022 Canadian Housing Market Outlook Report said young couples enjoying the freedom of working from home are driving the demand in Winnipeg, particularly for one and two-storey detached homes.
Re/Max predicts that Winnipeg will continue to attract young buyers into 2022.
The report added that out-of-province buyers came to Manitoba for the affordability, but interprovincial moves were largely impacted by remote work lifestyle changes.
In a statement, Re/Max confirmed to CTV News Winnipeg that it expects Winnipeg will remain a seller’s market next year, and is “expected to hold steady next year provided interest rates and inventory remain low.”
The report shows the average residential sale price in Winnipeg from Jan. 1 to Oct. 31, 2021, was $311,941. It estimates the average residential price in 2022 will be $322, 859 – an increase of 3.5 per cent. Re/Max predicts sales will increase by seven per cent in 2022.
