The Average Ontario Home Is Expected To Cost Nearly $900K By Next Year

This trend will only continue throughout the year, with a price increase of 16.5% across Canada, according to the report.

The price forecast shows that Ontario will see the most significant annual growth.

Despite having the second-most expensive homes in the country behind B.C., Ontario will see the biggest annual price change of any province, 21.2%, throughout 2021.

This forecast says that by 2022, the province's average home could cost $888,658, an increase of $33,440.

However, the CREA says that this trend will unwind in Canada by 2022, "as previously pent-up demand [is] exhausted, and as the urgency to purchase a home base to ride out the pandemic fades along with the virus itself."
