This is what you can find based on the average price of a home in Canada

Dec 24 2021, 4:53 pm

The price of homes in Canada continues to rise in a real estate market that’s red hot heading into 2022.

The Canadian Real Estate Association released its national housing market statistics for November 2021, reporting that the average home price rose to $720,850, up 19.6% from November 2020.

“Housing cycles can be very long, so market trends do not care that we’ve put new 2022 calendars up on our refrigerator doors,” said Shaun Cathcart, CREA’s senior economist, in a news release.

“The fact is that the supply issues we faced going into 2020, which became much worse heading into 2021, are even tighter as we move into 2022. Interest rate hikes will make it even harder for new entrants to break into the market next year, even though activity may remain robust as existing owners continue to move around in response to all of the changes to our lives since COVID showed up on the scene.”

This price is heavily influenced by sales in Vancouver and the Greater Toronto Area, Canada’s most expensive housing markets. Excluding these cities, the national average housing price dropped by $158,000.

The number of newly listed homes rose by 3.3% from October to November. Daily Hive took a look at active listings in major cities across the country. From townhouses to condos and custom-built real estate, here’s what you can find based on the average price of a home.
