WINNIPEG – It’s been a banner year for home sales in Winnipeg.
May and June each saw more than 1,600 MLS sales, the second- and third-best months ever.
WinnipegREALTORS’ Peter Squire tells Winnipeg’s Morning News there are few reasons.
“The underlying fundamentals are strong, we’ve got a growing population base and, of course, the incredibly low interest rates. And we’ve got a lot of selection.”
Squire admits these numbers are much better than expected.
“I didn’t quite forecast a year as good as this one. But I’m very happy and pleased to see how well we’re doing.”
Overall, MLS sales are up 9 per cent this year over last.
