Lets talk Real Estate

So off topic for a food blog, but something that has been on my mind for quite a while. Where I live now, the lowest a single family home goes for is....379, 000. That's on the shady side of town, far from where I live. The cheapest, on my side of town is....729,000
Lets travel East. How about Saskatoon? Cheapest house... 28, 900
I couldn't even find a house in Saskatoon that matched the lowest price in my neighbourhood. Closest? 679,000

I know! Real estate prices are insane all around the Lower Mainland. My husband and I want to move from the Fraser Valley to the north shore to be closer to downtown Vancouver, but it's out of our price range. It's depressing.

Yeah, but then you are in Saskatoon. There has to be some reward for living there. :)

(I'm from Alberta - there's practically a law that I have to say it. Sorry.)

I'm thankful that we've already bought into the market, so we didn't have to deal with the growth over the last couple years.
