Cornwall housing prices are amongst the least expensive in Canada.
Cornwall - Mar. 16, 2011 - The City of Cornwall was recently mentioned in a Sympactico.ca article called the “Least expensive cities to buy a home in Canada”. The City’s Economic Development team has long been touting Cornwall as an affordable place to live, work and retire. This article is an independent validation of their claim.
The Cornwall and District Real Estate Board reports that the average sale price of a house in Cornwall for February year to date is $144,865, which is well below the Ontario average of $350,153 and the Canadian average of $356,343.
“This web feature is a welcome acknowledgement that Cornwall has some of the most affordable housing in Canada,” said Bob Peters, Senior Development Officer. “The average sale price of a home in Cornwall is significantly below that of Ottawa, Toronto and Montreal. It is definitely a factor that is important to our efforts in attracting new residents to the City.”
Amongst the most expensive communities in which to live the article cites Toronto ($443,293), Ottawa ($334,357), Durham Region ($302,181), Montreal ($298,233), Kitchener-Waterloo ($278,392) and London-St. Thomas ($227,830).
Other cities in the Sympatico.ca feature include: Fredericton NB, Chatham-Kent ON, Sault Ste.Marie ON, Timmins ON, Thunder Bay ON, Yarmouth NS, Annapolis Valley NS, Cape Breton NS, Yorkton SK.
