This is encouraging to the Winnipeg market, as many major city markets have seen declines in home values and sales Winnipeg has remained robust in 2018 despite the changes to the mortgage rules implemented by OSFI.

New Mortgage Rules

The Office of the Superintendent of Financial Institutions (OSFI) introduced new rules on mortgage lending to take effect next year. OSFI is setting a new minimum qualifying rate, or “stress test,” for uninsured mortgages (mortgage consumers with down payments 20% or greater than their home price). The effect of the changes is significant, resulting in a 20% decrease in affordability, meaning a first-time homebuyer will be able to buy 20% less house

Summary

As we move into 2019 we are encourage by the robust nature of the Winnipeg real estate market and as always it is a great time to sell or buy a home in Winnipeg.
