I KNOW real estate.
Let’s start with an overview of the housingmarket as it is on Nov 1st, 2022.As always, we look at the stats insideWinnipeg, plus Headingley and E/St Paul,so my numbers will not match those of theWinnipeg REALTORS® monthly report,because they include most of southeasternManitoba.On Nov. 1st, there were 1228 houses of alltypes available in Winnipeg. Compare thatto 1336 on Oct. 1st, and only 802 onNovember 1st, last year.As for sales, in October we sold 555 houseswith another 22 ‘pending’, meaning thatpotentially a total of 575 house were sold.That’s nearly identical to the 577 sold themonth before, but down significantly fromthe 756 last year same time period. In fact,that’s down 24% year over year.As I said earlier, we will find that availablehomes are UP, and sales are DOWN.W H A T ' S H A P P E N I N GI N O U R M A R K E T ?

Photo by Serena | PhotographyIn the more luxurious condo price range of above 250K, we have161 units for sale on Nov 1st, down from the 188 on October 1st. Sales have dropped off here as well, with 53 potential sales, thatis 52 sold and 1 pending. Those 53 sales are down from the 71 ofthe previous month, and also down from 86 sales the previousyear, same time period.So we see that overall, the condo market is reacting similarly tothe housing market:Sales are slower, but availability is plentiful.
