55-plus : Are they right for YOU?

It’s an often-reported fact that Winnipeg’s population is aging, and as such Condominiums are becoming quite popular. In fact, there are numerous advantages to owning a condo.

Winnipeg home owners love their basement recrooms. But several problems, including flooding basements, cracking and shifting foundations are always a concern.
