Home prices slighty higher

  • Print
THE cost of buying a new home in Winnipeg edged a little higher for the second month in a row in December, according to new Statistics Canada figures issued Thursday.

The agency said Manitoba's new housing price index rose by 0.3 per cent from November to December. That followed a 0.1 per cent increase from October to November.

StatsCan said 19 of 21 Canadian cities it surveyed saw an increase in new-home prices in December. The only exceptions were Calgary and Victoria, which both posted a 0.2 per cent decline.

Nationally, the new housing price index rose by 0.4 per cent -- the same increase as in November.

Year-over-year, new-home prices in Winnipeg at the end of 2009 were 1.5 per cent higher than they were in December 2008, the figures show. Nationally, they were 0.9 per cent lower.
