Talk about getting more bang for your buck. While condos in the city are pretty popular, there are plenty of houses for sale in Canada that offer a lot of room. Surprisingly, some of them can even be had for under half a million dollars.
While real estate prices across the country continue to hold steady at high numbers, particularly in major centres like Toronto and Vancouver, there are plenty of hidden gems from coast to coast.
These houses, which wouldn't break the bank for someone who's been saving and being frugal for a long time, offer up a lot of space to spread out in luxury.
These types of homes can be found in every province, and you might be shocked at just how much room you'd get for such a relatively low price.
While we've looked at beautiful, inexpensive homes in Amherst, Nova Scotia, we wanted to take the opportunity to explore what else is out there. Each of the homes we've listed here offers more than 2000 square feet of living space for under $500,000.
