Buying a house in Ontario may seem like a dream, but some areas are a bit more affordable than others.

According to a new report by RE/MAX, the housing market will remain strong this fall, driven by young buyers and a low supply of houses.

This means "Canadian housing market prices are anticipated to increase by 5% in the remaining months of 2021, according to RE/MAX brokers and agents."

So while some areas may be cheaper than others, the market is still rising, which means you may need to save a little extra to afford your dream home.
