June market activity remains brisk with strong upward price movement
WINNIPEG, July 8, 2021 - June sales of 1,943 edged out last June’s sales of just under 1,900 by 2% and are up 14% over the 5-year average for this month. Dollar volume of $677.5 million jumped 16% over June 2020. New listings coming on to the market in June were down 12% at 2,373, while current inventory of 2,791 at month end decreased 39% from 2020.
“Sales are coming down off their peak in April 2021, and more closely aligned with 2020. June 2020 was the first month when sales rebounded strongly after the pandemic economic shutdown,” said Kourosh Doustshenas, 2021 president of the Winnipeg Regional Real Estate Board. “2021 dollar volume gains remain in the double-digits and represent strong upward price movement compared to 2020.”
