In my small city of 75,000 people, you cannot even purchase a small, 2 bedroom home for under $200,000......But a town I used to live in further North, I could have bought a rather nice, four/five bedroom home for around $20,000.............but I prefer to live closer to a city which has all the amenities I need.

For real estate prices in Canadian dollars, the easiest site to use is mls.ca , then all you need to do is click on any area of the Canada map that appears for home listing in that area, you will easily be able to enter all the info you need, price, bedrooms, bathrooms etc. Once you enter your info, you can then navigate the Country checking out costs for the same things you are looking for in all areas, Vancouver to St. John's, Newfoundland. Very easy site to use. Best wishes and please check out Prince Edward Island and Shediac area in New Brunswick (both in eastern Canada) for price comparisons to other major areas.
I just moved into an 4 bedroom Igloo up here in Shoddily, Northern Canada. Cost me im guessing about 4 fox furs and the hind side of a Caribou, I recon that might be around five thousand Loonies in your parts. The area in these parts is quite large, lots of them there mountains and rivers and stuff, and you got no problems with loans in these parts, as a matter of fact I just loaned out one of my dogs to the Doc the other day.Good Day, A
All I can tell you is it usually a lot more expensive here to own a house. Unless you live in the prairies. A house in the neighbourhood I live in, in Toronto is a million dollars and up.:S_http://www.remax.ca/
