House hunting in Toronto can get pretty discouraging if your budget is under $1 million. Thankfully, however, there are many cheap houses for sale in Ontario that are just a quick drive to the GTA. You'd be amazed at the properties you can snap up for just $350,000.
These homes outside of the city have everything you could want in a property -- spacious bedrooms, new appliances, renovated interiors and backyards.
The listings range from $325,000 to just under $400,000, an ideal price point for first-time homebuyers.
Unlike the teeny tiny homes you'll find in Toronto for $900,000, these properties offer an abundance of comfortable living space.
Travel further outside of southern Ontario and you'll find even cheaper starter homes for as little as $83,000.
With the price you'd be paying for a house like this, you could go nuts buying furniture during IKEA's big summer sale without feeling too guilty.
