There are so many wonderful sites out there that can give you an idea about the range of prices for a 3 bedroom home in Winnipeg, Manitoba...Start with Zillow.com, if they don`t cover your area,then search Canadian search engines that do the same thing as Zillow does. Check local online realtors web sites. Some of these web sites offer local search engines that are connected to the Realtors Multiple Listing Service which is the tool a Realtor uses and pays for to list homes and find homes for their buyers in that area. Just go to Google and type in Real Estate agents in Winnipeg, Manitoba and you will get results. The only thing is, that in order to sign up to one of these Real Estate sites, you have to give your info including, sometimes, a phone number...Don`t be shy about talking to a broker over the phone. The really good ones will offer to help you determine for yourself what your best options are. Remember, that you are the consumer of their service so don`t let any Real Estate agent pressure you into buying anything... Take your time. Make sure the home is right for your needs and future needs, i.e. babies etc.... As I said, a great Realtor will ask a lot of questions about your needs and also determine if it is best to pay all cash for a home or to finance a home.. Financing a home with a really good down payment will build your credit score which will serve you well in life. Also, since you are both just starting out in life but with some great careers ahead, think about expanding your real estate investments, meaning, never sell the first home that you purchase. As your credit builds and your income as well, than move up from your first home to your second bigger home and put renters in your first home... Continue doing that through out your lives and over your life times you will have a substantial real estate portfolio. When you do retire some day, then you would be able to live off the rents collected from all of your rentals. And, by then, all or most of those homes will be paid off which means you will be collecting that passive income for your living expenses instead of just paying on those mortgages.Just think, some day, that all of this will pay for your kids college educations, and then it will all be inherited to them and their children someday. This is a life time income that should never end as long as you maintain the homes and pay the bills...Good Luck in your lives!
