Canadian real estate: The cost of buying a home now

Isinumite ng sa Nobyembre 5, 2010 – 7:04 sa4 Komento

Magkano aabutin upang bumili ng bahay sa Canada?

It depends on where you want to live.

Ang Cana­da Mort­gage and Hou­sing Cor­po­ra­tion (CMHC) regu­lar­ly publishes sta­tis­tics about real estate prices in major Cana­dian metro­po­li­tan areas.

Their most recent report – for the third quar­ter of 2010 – inclu­ded ave­rage MLS (Mul­tiple Lis­ting Ser­vice) mga presyo para sa mga bahay na naibenta sa 2009 and fore­cast prices through the end of 2010.

Sa ulat na ito CMHC, Van­cou­ver ran­ked as the nation’s most expen­sive hou­sing mar­ket.

Buying a place to live in Van­cou­ver in 2009 ay magkakaroon ng gastos near­ly double the cost of a home in Otta­wa and almost three times as much as hou­sing in Que­bec City o sa Winnipeg.

Vic­to­ria (BC) was the second most expen­sive city to buy real estate. Mga presyo sa Toron­to at sa Kelow­na (in Bri­tish Colum­bia’s Oka­na­gan region) were rough­ly com­pa­rable, and just slight­ly higher than prices in Cal­ga­ry.

The chea­pest cities? Saint John (New Bruns­wick), Wind­sor (Onta­rio), at Trois-Rivières (Que­bec).

Here’s a sum­ma­ry of the city-by-city results for 20 metro­po­li­tan areas:
