Back to the topic ....

I would recommend renting on a month-to-month basis for a brief time to get the feel of the neighbourhoods. Winnipeg's condos are expensive in comparison to houses. If the OP wants a low maintenance apartment, that's one thing. But 2 bedroom houses well within his price range are abundant in St. Boniface, Norwood, St. James, Wolseley, and Fort Rouge. Many of those would be within spitting distance of the village and be maybe $50,000 cheaper than a condo.

Also, no place in Saskatoon is as "urban" as Osborne Village. It is not a place to park and that could drive a Toonian nuts.

So I'd say rent briefly and then buy.
