7 Houses Under $1 Million That Prove Ottawa Is Way Cheaper Than Toronto (PHOTOS)

You could be living like kings and queens in the capital.
Ottawa Homes For Sale That Prove The Capital Has More Bang For Your Buck Than Toronto

Everyone has a different idea of their dream home, but what most of us don’t have is the cash to actually make those dreams a reality. When we were younger, a million dollars sounded like a huge amount. These days, though, that kind of money won’t get you very far, especially in Toronto’s current housing market. Luckily, the 6ix is not the only Ontario city worth moving to. So, we’ve rounded up 7 Ottawa homes for sale with prices so comparatively low you’ll be running from the 6ix. 

An affordable house with a huge backyard in Toronto? We don’t know her. In fact, you may recall that median house prices in the city increased by more over that last 12 months than a lot of people earn in a year.

Of course, it’s not just Toronto homes that come with a sizeable price tag. Just take a look at what a million dollars will get you in Vancouver. Hint: Like TO, it’s not much. 

Which is why Ottawa feels like the perfect destination for potential home buyers.

Not only will you find cheaper price tags in the capital, but more often than not, you’ll have way more space as well.

There are plenty of amazing places to buy or rent just outside the city, from modern winter cabins to places that offer their own private oasis.

Just try to find comparable properties in the GTA and you’ll likely be met with some intimidating price points.
