We hope you weren't planning on dining out in Toronto at any point in the next 24 years.
New data from the National Bank of Canada (NBC) says that's how long it might take you to save up to put a down payment on a house in Toronto.
Months of saving to afford a Toronto down payment
If you put 10% of that aside each month, it will only take 289 months (or 24 years) to afford the down payment.
Even if you want to buy a condo in Toronto, you'll need to earn $124,335 a year and save up for 4 years to afford a down payment.
Luckily, homes outside of Toronto are cheaper — but not by too much.
If you live in Ottawa/Gatineau, for instance, you can afford a down payment on a house by earning $110,587 a year and saving up for 39 months.
And if you're in Hamilton, you only need to make $144,188 a year for 63 months to afford a down payment on a house. Easy!
