This is what a $200K home looks like in cities across Canada
The last time the national average home price was anywhere near $200K was the early 2000's — which is two decades ago now. But if you look hard enough, you can still find properties in that price range. Not really in Vancouver or Toronto, but we all knew that.
Anyway, here's what you can get for $200,000 in cities across Canada.
Located in the Auburn Bay neighbourhood on the outskirts of Calgary is this one bedroom bungalow-style townhouse. The interiors are bright, spacious and modern. The home also comes with full lake privileges so is perfect for swimming and skating depending on the time of year.
Right across the Ottawa river is the city of Gatineau, Quebec, where you can find this brand new two-bedroom bungalow. It's perfect for an elderly couple or a couple looking to get into the real estate market.
This duplex is a great fixer-upper. It has solid bones with historic features like the original crown molding. It can also be turned into an income property as you could rent out one of the levels. According to the listing, you could make upwards of $755 / month.
Located in the Lakeside Chateau development of the Lakewood neighbourhood is this three-bedroom, two-bathroom home. The main floor is bright and open concept. The kitchen leads to a cute little backyard and it recently got new appliances. Score!
This adorable little three-bedroom home is located a mere 40 minute drive from downtown Montreal. It's close to schools, parks and other amenities making it ideal for a new family. It could use a bit of fixing up but all and all not too shabby.
Right in the heart of St. Johns is this colourful home. It has three bedrooms and two bathrooms. It was freshly painted and new flooring was recently installed. It's also really close to the downtown action.
This charming home has tons of character, from skeleton keys to wide floorboard trim, built-in cupboards and drawers. The home sits on 0.07 acres of land and is also close to downtown, which is always ideal. It will need some work, however, as there is a hole in the ceiling of the kitchen.
Property is limited in Yellowknife, but for $244,000 you can get this energy efficient mobile home. The home has over 1,200 square feet of living space and the kitchen was redone in 2009.
