Buying a home shouldn't be a totally unattainable goal. However, in a lot of the most popular Canadian markets, house prices are through the roof. However, there are plenty of properties for sale in Newfoundland that offer so much space for less than $250,000.
While major cities like Toronto or Vancouver are often the most desirable, especially for young professionals, the fact that more people could be working from home means you could live almost anywhere in the country.
That includes heading out east to one of Canada's most beautiful and unique provinces.
However, the Rock has its own collection of inexpensive but comfortable homes to offer.
Would you have to put up with some aggressive winter weather sometimes? Probably, but at least you'd have a nice big house to keep warm in.
On top of getting a great house on a budget, you'd also find yourself close to some great sights, such as migrating whales and giant icebergs that make their way by the Newfoundland shore.
If the thought of clean ocean air and island life sounds pretty good to you, these houses might be right up your alley.
