Canada's Average House Price Hits $548,517. Here Are The Hottest, Coldest Markets
The average sales price of a home in Canada reached $548,517 in March, up 8.2 per cent in a year.
Most of that strength came from Greater Toronto and southern Ontario, where prices soared in the 30-per-cent range in the past year.
It didn’t come from Vancouver, where the average selling price is down 9.3 per cent from a year ago, according to data from the Canadian Real Estate Association. Sales volumes dropped more than 30 per cent in the city from a year ago, when sales there were already softening.

The hottest market, not surprisingly, was in southern Ontario. Like many places surrounding Toronto, the Niagara region is seeing booming house prices as desperate Torontonians move farther afield in search of an affordable home.
