Recently, the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA), conducted a comparison of the price of homes in Canada. They compared 2014 to 2015 and have laid out the average prices for both years across each province.
Not surprisingly, Beautiful British Columbia remained the most expensive (at $639,405), followed by Ontario ($453,646), and Alberta ($385,804). The national average for 2014 was $406,215 and rose in 2015 to $431,812. See the results HERE.
The study revealed the average house price in Hamilton-Burlington to be $398,239 in 2014 and jumped 9.8% to be just above the average at $437,386 in 2015.
We thought it would be interesting to see what home buyers could get across Canada for the average Burlington price; here’s what we found with other homes in Canada.
