Investing in Rural Real Estate Outside Winnipeg, MB with Candice Bakx-Friesen
I was talking to my friend Stephen Jones at the May REIN meeting about the affordability crisis in the Golden Horseshoe’s real estate market. Stephen lives in the East, I in the West but the challenges are no different, where will the next generation live?
Stephen theorized if our kids did not have investor parents, they would have to move to Winnipeg for affordability reasons. I countered, “no, they will be living with you!” to which we both laughed, could you imagine? He’s got four kids too, imagine if all the kids got married and moved back home with their spouses and started having kids.
