WINNIPEG — Amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Winnipeg is experiencing record months for real estate sales.
However, along with record sales, the city is also seeing a deficit in listings, which has forced many people to buy homes above the list price.
Earlier in August, CTV News Winnipeg also reported that for the first time, Winnipeg’s real estate market saw a shift in the most active price range, moving to the range of $300,000 to $349,000.
But with these recent changes to the cost of Winnipeg’s real estate, what does the city’s most expensive homes look like, and where can they be found?
The Manitoba Real Estate Association has compiled a list of the city’s most expensive houses and condos that are currently on the market, ranging in price from $1.1 million to $9 million.
