Can anyone afford a home in Montreal? Asking for a friend.
When it comes to buying a home in Montreal, it's safe to say you need a significant amount of wealth to secure anything worthwhile. So you might be tempted to look outside of the city centre for your first property, considering how much cheaper homes are when you're in the middle of nowhere. Ok, maybe not in the middle of nowhere, but not in Montreal.
If you're willing to relocate for the sake of getting your foot into the world of real estate, then there are a decent number of properties across the province that are cute, quaint but most importantly, cheap-ish.
From the Centre-du-Québec and Estrie regions all the way to Lévis in Chaudière-Appalaches here are seven homes for sale across Quebec that are less than $200,000.
