This is what a $500k home looks like in cities across Canada

The average home price in Canada varies widely across the county. You'll obviously get a better bang for your buck outside of heated markets like Vancouver or Toronto, where the average prices for a detached home costs around $1.2 million and $935,000, respectively. 

Here's what you can get for half a million bucks in cities across Canada.


This three-storey townhouse sits off some pretty green space by the Humber River. It's biggest asset is likely its proximity to some main Toronto arteries, and some up-and-coming transit stops which will be a huge plus when they're completed — whenever that may be.

Three bedrooms spread out over three floors is the perfect single family home, especially since its situated in the Auburn By neighbourhood which has all the accoutrements of the Aubury Bay Lake within walking distance.

The best part about this 2,100-square-foot, five-bedroom property is its covetable backyard, which comes equipped with stone patios and impeccable landscaping. A big laundry room and media room help too.

You'll be hard-pressed to find a full detached home in this pricey city for just $500K, but you could purchase a cozy ground-floor apartment that sits facing the Fraser River, patio and yard included.

Located just steps from the banks of the Prairies River is this modest five-bedroom with a renovated kitchen and backyard that sits on a quiet street in the Pierrefonds-Roxboro borough.

This sunny two-storey home comes with four bedrooms, a laundry room on the main floor, and a lot that comes with its own detached garage and a fenced backyard. It was built in 1922 so is far from perfect condition: renovations recommended.

This Rosewood home sits on a budding crescent that appears to filling up with new properties. A drive-through garage and quartz countertop finishings make it a sleek new buy. Plus appliances come included.

A lagoon-style pool is just one of the appeals of this Brighton property. Four bedrooms, a sun room, and a view of the backyard are appealing for families, especially with such close vicinity to three different schools.

Not far from Range Lake is this family home that's just a few minutes from Old Airport Road. It's on a quiet road, but not too far from all the main action happening just a five-minute drive away.
