Brandon's ratio of owned to rented private dwellings has been very consistent over time and represents a healthy mix of opportunities to either buy or rent. Brandon's relatively young population, Brandon's 2016 median age is 38 years versus the Canadian mean of 41 years, influences the amount of rented properties as younger families are much more likely to rent then buy.
