WinnipegREALTORS® Press Release, June 7, 2016

WINNIPEG - May 2016 showed stellar results with MLS® sales surpassing 1,600 for only the third time in WinnipegREALTORS® 113-year history. MLS® dollar volume followed suit with a new all-time monthly record of $460 million.

2016 is picking up where 2015 left off with a full recovery in condominium sales from early last year and residential-detached sales continuing to shine and show gains over the previous year. Beyond the two main property types, sales increases are also occurring in most others such as duplexes, vacant land, commercial, mobile homes, single-attached and town houses.

“Buyers are taking notice and advantage of one of the most affordable markets in the country,” said Stewart Elston, president of WinnipegREALTORS®. “They also have the benefit of choosing from a wide array and abundance of good listings.”

Only May 2007 has higher monthly sales than the 1,629 sales transacted in May 2016....
