Canada’s Best Cities For First Time Home Buyers

Growing numbers of first time home buyers are venturing farther in search of an affordable first home. While leading metropolitan cities like Vancouver or Toronto will always be strong draws, they’re challenging markets to crack: in December 2018, the benchmark price of a home hit $1.05 million in Greater Vancouver and $796,800 in Greater Toronto.

Home buying tips

Homebuyers have driven booms in revitalized municipalities like Hamilton, Ont. and Surrey, B.C. These growing cities offer great value for homebuyers seeking more home for their real estate buck – yet their new-found popularity comes with swelling sticker prices.  Are there any exciting cities where you can buy a house for less than the national average of half a million dollars?

Fortunately, yes! Below are examples of four up-and-coming communities that are ideal for new buyers. These cities offer more than just great entry-level real estate: they’re also uniquely beautiful communities to set down roots in.


Kamloops, B.C.

Average 2018 home price: $394,5152

Approximate population: 103,811

Why: This Thompson Valley river town sits in the shadow of mountains, enjoys beautiful weather and has a relaxed, outdoorsy vibe. Kamloops boasts all the millennial must-haves: arts and culture, yoga studios, restaurants and a farmers’ market, plus amazing proximity to hiking, skiing, fishing and snow sports. Kamloops offers the quintessential B.C. lifestyle for a fraction of the cost of Vancouver living.


Halifax, N.S.

Average 2018 home price: $300,8543 (Halifax-Dartmouth)

Approximate population: 403,390

Why: Canada’s East Coast offers amazing value to anyone who’s ready to make the leap. Unlike other Maritime municipalities where job prospects may be suboptimal, Halifax is booming. One of Canada’s top tech hubs, the fast-growing city, enjoys low unemployment, a healthy economy, universities, the Atlantic Ocean and über- affordable real estate. Beaches, culture, a growing food scene are assets.


 London, Ont.

Average 2018 home price: $383,229, that is the average in the London St.Thomas area , you can start with an apartment condominium under $200,000 and a wide range of townhouses and bungalows from $200,000 to $300,000!

Approximate population: 383,437

Why: London is home to Western University and boasts a thriving entertainment and food scene. The Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives ranks it among Canada’s best cities for women, thanks to its safety, economic security, education, health and leadership opportunities. Nicknamed the Forest City, London has plenty of green spaces to kick back in.

Some London Ontario Neighbourhoods


Guelph, Ont.

Average 2018 home price: $554,326

Approximate population: 131,794

Why: Guelph is a nature lover’s paradise, with two scenic rivers and endless kilometres of recreational trails that meander through forests and parks. It’s low in crime and has long been renowned for its high standard of living, not to mention its laid-back, university-city vibe.

These are just a few examples of the wonderful communities across Canada. And regardless of where you practice real estate, looking beyond big city limits will provide great options for first-timers looking to achieve their dream of homeownership.

Is It Possible Your Next Door Neighbour In London Ontario Is Wealthy & You Don’t Know?

Is your next door neighbour in London Ontario wealthy?

How would you know or do you even care? Is it the largest house, the most toys, the fanciest cars, the exotic vacations, their job, title or profession?

Is it appearances? Is it perception? Is it frugality? Is it cheap?

the Millionaire next door

In the first paragraph in a book called “The Millionaire Next Door, The Surprising Secrets of America’s Wealthy “ by Thomas Stanley and William Danko, these two researchers wrote:
“Twenty years ago we began studying how people became wealthy. Initially, we did it just as you might imagine, by surveying people in so-called upscale neighbourhoods across the country. In time, we discovered something odd. Many people who live in expensive homes and drive luxury cars do not have much wealth. Then we discovered something even odder: Many people who have a great deal of wealth do not even live in upscale neighbourhoods”.

As a Broker of Record and an owner of a real estate boutique in London Ontario, I do a fair amount of volume and get to see lots of houses and neighbourhoods in London, and after all these years, I have the opportunity to keep shaking my head!

I get to see first-hand; people who are mortgage poor, have high credit card debt, have depleted lines of credit as well as mortgage-free homeowners, own free and clear economy transportation, are usually debt free and in most cases, free from that regular day to day money fears.

The first group continues to spend, working harder and longer to help lenders get wealthy and waiting for someday to retire and be debt free!

Every calendar I have ever seen has seven days on it, I have never seen ‘someday’ on one yet!

Downsizing is not just for old folks, baby boomers or mobility challenged individuals. The hardest part for most people is worrying about what their family, friends and co-workers will think.

Maybe, just maybe, they too are treading water or sinking (both are very similar ) as well!

Note: This is not intended to disparage anyone, criticize or sound like a doomsayer, I am quite energetic and positive about life and have lived and experienced both sides of the scale! Only one side has the financial & time freedom, and it now will depend on what price you are willing to pay to find out on which side that is.

mortgage free or in debt? your choice

According to the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA), a ratio between 40% and 60% is generally consistent with a balanced housing market. In March, London and St. Thomas had a sales-to-new listings ratio of 75.1%, which CREA says represents conditions in the marketplaces that favour sellers. It reinforces the trends LSTAR Members have been experiencing, with low supply and high demand, and also managing multiple offer situations and out-of-town interest in our region.”
