2017 has been a strong real estate market and we expect the strength to continue.
The market strength can be attributed to a steady job market, good population growth and confidence in our local economy.
Below you’ll find various statistics for Winkler, Morden, the RM of Stanley, and Southern Manitoba compiled from residential and condominium sales data from all real estate agencies provided from the MLS(Multiple Listing Service).
As illustrated above, Winkler’s sales have increased and Morden’s sales have decreased slightly compared to 2016.
These gradual market fluctuations are very common from year to year.
