13 Houses For Sale In Gatineau That Prove Just How Affordable It Is Across The Ottawa River (PHOTOS)

Would you consider crossing the Ottawa river for cheaper real estate? There are so many huge houses for sale in Gatineau that are surprisingly cheap, and they prove just how affordable property can be on the opposite side of the water. In fact, moving just 20 minutes outside of Ottawa could actually save you thousands and thousands of dollars.

When it comes to real estate, prices in Ottawa can get pretty steep. While costs may seem somewhat reasonable in comparison with homes in cities like Toronto and Vancouver, Ottawa’s housing market continues to rise.

In fact, according to AgentInOttawa, the average price for an Ottawa home in June 2020 was $558,533. That’s an increase of 15.7% in just one year.

While most of us don’t have a cool $500,000 to splurge on a property, that doesn’t mean buying a home near the City is impossible.

Just 20 minutes from downtown, property prices are considerably cheaper. You can actually find sizable condos in the Gatineau region for less than $180,000, and you’ll still be only minutes from the National Capital!

To give you an idea of what’s available just around the corner, these Gatineau-area properties are all on the market right now, and most cost less than $300,000.

Maybe it's time to brush up on those French skills, eh?!
