Winnipeg Property Market and Real Estate Guide

(Winnipeg, Manitoba - MB, Canada)

Winnipeg skyline imageBoasting a large number of historic attractions, the city of Winnipeg features stunning scenery and a diverse culture, making it a popular tourist destination. Winnipeg's economy is stable and this is a great place to buy and rent accommodation.

There is a wide range of accommodation on offer here, from luxurious apartments to more modest offerings scattered throughout the city. The property market here is prospering, making Winnipeg an attractive place for investment opportunities that will see nice returns.

While many people opt for large modern apartments in the downtown district, there are some excellent places to buy and rent in Lower Fort Garry, which can be found in the north of the city. Other popular districts to buy and rent property in Winnipeg include Kensington, Crescentwood, Worthington and Norberry.

Renting Serviced Apartments

Serviced apartments are readily available in Winnipeg and although more expensive than standard apartments, they tend to be cheaper than in many other prominent Canadian tourist destinations, such as Niagara Falls.

Serviced apartments range from modest two-bedroom apartments to modern studio apartments and luxurious apartments designed for families. All serviced apartments come with a range of modern conveniences, such as en suite bathrooms and fitted kitchens, while many also include shared facilities such as gardens, barbeque pits and even swimming pools.

Buying Apartments and Houses

Purchasing property in Canada as a foreigner is relatively straightforward as the laws are more or less the same as in the UK. In addition to the cost of the property, an additional ten percent will need to be paid in order to cover all agency fees, as well as taxes. While some clients choose to hire a lawyer to make sure that the purchase goes smoothly, most real estate agents are able to take care of all the details.

Real Estate Agents

Before approaching a real estate agent, it is important to take the time to read reviews from customers and to look at the company websites to make sure it is the agent to meet your needs. While estate agents in Winnipeg are professional and speak English, many can be rather pushy and clients should keep a clear idea in their mind of exactly what they are looking for, so as not to be persuaded to take another option.
