Housing Costs in Canada
"What we got for our money made it worth every cent. We were paying $750.00 per month and had our own beach.
Averages in the area vary depending on the type of homes. House prices range from around $150,00 to around $3 million,"
explained one expat.
"Cost of housing less than the UK but living costs around the same. Typical median house in the islands would be around $650k CAD,"
said another person in Vancouver.
"Housing costs are roughly half those of the UK. an average 2 storey house costs $226,000 dollars but is of course bigger than a similar house in the UK as they usually have finished basements,"
remarked another expat in Montreal.
"We are renting in a 'nice' middle class area but property is expensive to rent and becoming increasingly expensive to buy, by Canadian standards. An very average property costs around 2000 CAD per month. Saying that we could buy a nice home for 250,000.
It is also difficult to find expats most either settle for good and love it or stay a relatively short time,"
explained one expat living in Edmonton.
"Housing costs are definitely lower. Paid 140 for a 1200 foot condo, its only four years old so it's all like new,"
said another expat in Calgary.
"Lower. A 3 bedroom 1,500 square foot home sells for $200,000 plus. Condo apts and townhouses are less,"
added another person living in Calgary.
