Below is a list of 18 homes for sale in Montreal for between $470,000 and $500,000.\nThis list represents a cross-section of real estate in the city.\nWhile some boroughs offer entire homes for this price, in others, only small studios are available.\nVisit MTLBlog for more headlines.\nMontreal real estate is steadily increasing in price. Though the city has long held out against the inflated prices that plague its Canadian peers, foreign investment, a construction boom downtown, and gentrification are driving up costs. It's getting more and more difficult to make that first property investment. So residents interested in buying should probably do so sooner rather than later. To simplify the search, we've compiled below 18 Montreal homes for sale for a reasonable $500,000.\nThese homes represent a cross-section of real estate in the city of Montreal. $500,00 can get you a 4-bedroom single-family home in some boroughs and just a small studio condo in others.\nIt's clear that some neighbourhoods give you much more bang for your buck. Look to Pierrefonds, Sainte-Geneviève, and Hochelaga for some of the largest homes. Condos in the Plateau, downtown, and Sud-Ouest, meanwhile, come with a premium.\nThis list focuses on the municipality of Montreal, so homes in on-island suburbs and enclaves like the Town of Mount Royal and Westmount were not eligible.\nEach point on this list includes a photo of the home exterior, asking price, a short description of attractive property features, and a link to a full listing, where more images and details are available.\nNote that these listings are subject to change at any point and will disappear when homes are sold.\nAn Entire Friggin' 4-Bedroom Home In Roxboro\nPrice: $495,000\nGoogle Maps\nThis enormous home with exposed wood beams, fireplaces, and several living spaces is right by the water and blocks away from a future REM station.
