Bancroft is so desirable because of its affordability, location and growth potential! 🏠
Pack your bags, cottage country is calling! Bancroft in Ontario was recently crowned the best place to buy real estate in Canada and it's not hard to see why.
Bancroft, which is located halfway between Toronto and Ottawa, was awarded the prestigious title by Zoocasa in a new report.
The real estate company found that the region is Canada's best housing market right now thanks to its affordability, location and potential for growth.
Despite its location beside Algonquin Provincial Park and the Ontario cottage country, the average price of a property in Bancroft is 47% cheaper than the national average.
