What's the average price of a home where you live?

The latest data from the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) shows that average home prices in Canada took a slight dip in April compared to one month ago. The organization reported that the average price of all residential property types in Canada was $796,068 in March before dropping to $746,146 in April, with price levels not seasonally adjusted.

Despite this, Canadians still spent more on home purchases in April 2022 than they did in April 2021, with major markets across the country seeing notable increases in average home prices year-over-over.

Some regions, such as St. John’s, N.L., reported a moderate growth in the cost of a home; MLS benchmark prices compiled by the CREA showed that the price of a typical home in the city was about $268,000 in April 2021 before rising to $296,200 exactly one year later. Meanwhile, the average price of a home in the Greater Toronto Area, for example, came in at $1.35 million in April 2022, up from about $1.03 million just one year prior.

MLS home price index benchmark prices represent the value of a typical home in different Canadian neighbourhoods. Figures take into account different types of residential housing, and are not seasonally adjusted.

CTVNews.ca has gathered a number of properties that are listed at what is considered the average price of a home in their respective regions. With properties in cities ranging from Kelowna to Moncton, these listings represent the price of a typical home in major Canadian markets.
