In a new report by Zoocasa, the "best-value neighbourhoods across the country" have been ranked "based on the current average home price, price growth in recent years, as well neighbourhood characteristics and economics."

While a huge portion of the top spots are located in Ontario, there are tons of other options from different parts of the country. Outside of Ontario, the top location to buy is Greater Moncton where the average price of real estate is $200,267. Next is Lakelands in Nova Scotia, where homes cost an average of $416,525. Then comes Greater Montreal with an average price of $399,417.

The following places also earned spots on the list: Halifax-Dartmouth, Winnipeg, Saskatoon, Vancouver Island, Regina, Chilliwack and District, St. John's, Okanagan Valley, Edmonton, Calgary, Victoria, Fraser-Valley, Lower-Mainland, and the City of Vancouver.

Prices get a whole lot more expensive as the list continues, with the average housing cost in Vancouver sitting at $1,056,897. So, you may want to set your sights on Greater Moncton or Montreal where things are super affordable.
