Welcome to our new and improvedWinnipeg Real Estate market reportin PDF Format.Hi, I’m Bo Kauffmann of REMAXperformance realty, proud to presentthe most unique real estate reportavailable today.New and Improved? Previously, thesegments were organized accordingto available listings, sold homes, andInventory levels. But if you’relooking at buying or selling a$300,000 dollar house, youprobably don’t care about how$750,000 homes are selling.So we’ve organizes the sections in away that makes sense.First up is an overview of thehousing market this month, andcomparing to previous time periods.Up next are houses under $250,000,entry level homes for first timebuyers in Winnipeg. The third segment focuses housesbetween $250K and $500K,Winnipeg's most active pricerange.....by far.Each price band is fully examinedand reported, with numbers ofavailable listings, solds over the pastmonth, inventory levels and more.W H A T S T H I S A B O U T ?Why a PDF? It allows the reader tostay on a section he or she is mostinterested in (as opposed to avideo). This affords you the time toexamine the information moreclosely.It also allows us to embed the audiodescription of what you’re lookingat.Any ads you ﬁnd are alsointeractive, meaning you can clickon certain spots and go directly tothe advertisers internet sites. I onlyaccept ads from trusted and reliableservice providers.These reports are a labor of love,and I really would appreciate yourfeedback, and any suggestions youmight have of improving them.And please remember….buying orselling, a house or a condo inWinnipeg? I KNOW real estate.
Let’s start with an overview of the market as itis on June 1st.In my 16+ years in real estate, I’ve neverexperienced a buying frenzy to the extend it ishappening right now. You may have heardstories of homes selling for 50, 75 or even100,000 ABOVE list price. These stories aretrue.What we are witnessing is the result of severalfactors. First, the available listings are way down fromthe average.Going back over the previous 3 years, we cansee that around 1200 available houses for salein Winnipeg would be an average amount forJune 1st.Today, we have 759. Actually, the numbers ofnew listings coming to market is UP, but salesare far outpacing availability this year.In Winnipeg, during the month of May, we sold1,067 plus another 48 'Pending" for a possibletotal of 1,115 Sales!Last year same period, we sold 821 houses. W H A T ' S H A P P E N I N GI N O U R M A R K E T ?
Over the past 3 years , an average number of around 750-900 houses would sell during the month of MayThis year, we sold a confirmed 1067 with another 48 aspending and most likely to close……meaning that sales areUP around 35% over last year.The result is obvious: an increasing number of buyersplacing a strain on available listings.Hardest hit will be the first time home buyers. If you’relooking for a 300K home in a popular area, you may be outof luck for now. Houses which are listed at 280, sell for300, 320 , 350…..often without ANY conditions. If you’re putting 5% down, that’s a VERY toughenvironment to compete in. Photo by Serena | PhotographyWhy Is This Happening?

Lets take a look at available houses priced under $250,000Currently, June 1st, there are 218 active listings, up slightly fromMay 1st, but down from last year where we had 269 activelistings available in the under $250K range.And while available listings are down, sales are the same overlast month, and last year same time period.During May this year, we sold 170 homes, with another 18showing as "Pending", for a total of 188 possible sales.That's up slightly from the 168, but actually lower than the 205sold last year. WHY? Because houses UNDER $250k arebecoming more rare. It's tough to find a home in this pricerange, where our average home is closer to $370K in Winnipeg.This means the inventory drops sits around 36 days, slightlylower than last year's 40 days.
