Welcome to this week’s episode. We will have an in-depth interview with Brian Ross of Innovation Fabrication about turning shipping containers into pools, sheds, temporary houses and even tiny homes and offices.

We will also talk with Mike Schroeder of Mortgage Architects about what to do, and what not to do, after you’ve been pre-approved.

           This very innovative local company started by converting shipping containers into pools and hot tubs. They are expanding and creating covid-shelters, medical labs, man-caves and she-sheds, garages and tiny homes.

           Some cautions about what NOT to do between the time you are pre-approved, and the time you take possession of your home. Don’t change your credit rating, or credit history, don’t change jobs and more info from Mike

           We have all heard about how tight the Winnipeg Real Estate Market is right now. This is due to the lack of available and listed houses. For example, last year at this time, we had over 1,600 available homes for sale, while this morning that number is approx.. 40% lower.

           On the other hand, condos are not facing this shortage. Last year, 640 available compared to 610 this morning, so just a 5% drop.

           Next week, Nov 5th, we will take a closer look at the housing stats for October, and we’ll talk about the option of buying a condo instead of a house. There are some advantages, and some disadvantages to condo ownership, and we’ll examine those as well.
