Real estate in the 401 corridor: Comparing the ‘average’ homes


Stop us if you’ve heard this before: house prices go up and up with no end in sight.

That’s true in almost all of Southern Ontario. It has been years ago

But not all real estate markets have been made equal.

Home buyers from the Greater Toronto region have flocked to Waterloo Region, and have decided that longer commute times are worthy of lower house prices.

in turn pushed a number of buyers from the Waterloo Region to more rural communities.

While local real estate markets are closely monitored by the media, less attention is paid to the differences between neighboring communities.

We have decided to do something about it.

We took a look at ten large housing markets along Highway 401 between Toronto and Windsor.

With the most recent available numbers we have taken the average sales price for each community and searched for a house that is currently on the market. around that price.

In order to make the comparisons at least somewhat apples-to-apples, we looked for detached houses in suburban areas of the cities concerned. All houses have asking prices within five percent of the city’s average sales price. All houses mentioned here were for sale on from 23 February.

The houses are relatively similar – but what they sell for is very, very different.
