Homes in central Toronto sold at an average of nearly $2.1 million. 

However, some surrounding areas in the GTA are still offering more bang for your buck

Brock, Ontario saw an average sale price of $619,548 between April to December of 2020, making the spot over $1.4 million cheaper than the downtown 6ix area. 

The report also stated that Simcoe saw the most growth of any GTA municipality, with a 21% increase in housing sales between April and December 2020 compared to the same time the previous year. 

This bumped the average price for a house in Simcoe up to $766,083, which is still significantly cheaper than the 6ix.
