April Springs Upward with Strong Real Estate Market Performance

Winnipeg, May 8, 2024 – For April 2024, all MLS® sales reported by the Winnipeg Regional Real Estate Board were 1,419, an increase of 27% from March and 29% over last April. When comparing to April of 2023, all MLS® active listings of 3,827 were up 7% and total MLS® dollar volume of $561 million up 41%. The trend continued with residential detached MLS® sales of 985, up 30% while the average residential detached MLS® price of $436,535 was up 7% when compared to April 2023.

“For the first time since June of 2022 and after a 21 consecutive month trend, all MLS® sales in the Winnipeg Regional Real Estate Board’s market region rose above the 5-year average,” said Daphne Shepherd, 2024-2025 President of the Winnipeg Regional Real Estate Board. “From an MLS® sales perspective, this represents the 3rd best April on record and narrowly misses the 2nd best April in 2022, by 35 sales. Aside from a decrease in active condominium listings, all three of the main property types of residential detached, condominium and residential attached homes were at or above last year and the 5-year averages for active listings, new listings, MLS® sales, dollar volume and average prices.”

Year-to-date residential detached MLS® sales were up 17% to 2,668 when compared to the 2,276 seen through April 2023. Year-to-date residential detached MLS® average prices were up 8% to $418,284 from the $388,967 seen last year. Year-to-date residential detached sales dollar volume was up 26% to $1.1 billion compared to the $885 million seen through April of 2023.
