Million-dollar-plus houses set record

Winnipeg is awash in million-dollar-plus homes, and that has records toppling in the city’s resale homes market.
Not only has Winnipeg set a new standard for the most million-dollar-plus homes sold in a single year — nine and counting — but there’s also a record number of them still for sale.
According to new figures released Tuesday by WinnipegREALTORS, there were 19 such properties listed for sale last week on the Multiple Listing Service. (That number has since dipped to 18 with the sale of a $1-million-plus condominium within the last few days).
Industry officials said even at 18, that’s the most that’s been available at any one time in the city’s history.
