In my area you can find a pretty darn decent house for less than that. Depends on where you live.

EDIT: I see you're from Toronto. That's why you think it's cheap. I live in Welland (couple hours from Toronto). In a big city, yea it's not much for a house. In a small town you can find an amazing house for that. Toronto is an over priced shithole (no offense intended to you, just the horrible city).

You live in southern Ontario. No you can't. Source: I grew up in a "pretty darn decent" house in southern Ontario.

$160 000 can't even get you a bungalow in Toronto.
I've seen them go for almost twice that.

Show me a decent house, in a decent neighbourhood, for 160 grand. Calling BS.

edit: I'm from Burlington, and I grew up in a very modest house in a good neighbourhood. Our neighbours just recently sold their house for ~$500,000 IIRC. Can't think of very many houses I've even heard of selling for $160,000 and I'm from the suburbs.

That was very informative, thank you.

I live in a two story house, central air, just renovated, 3 car garage, in ground swimming pool, about 1.5-2 acres (it's in the city, so not that big) and I (yes I, not my parents) pay $130,000 to live here. It's in the upper class area of my city. My city is a huge shithole, so that's not saying much, but this is where the upper class live. Grocery store down the street. Tim Hortons too.

You just have to take buying a house very very slow, wait and be patient and you can pretty much always find a great house.

Burlington is a richer city, I think. I don't think you've been to Welland. It's similar to Niagara Falls (where I also used to live) as a shithole, except Welland is worse. Like I said man, it depends where you live. I can go to Fort Erie and buy a $500,000 house too, or I could go to Owen Sound and buy a 10 acre house for $150,000.

Location, location, location.


EDIT: That's the issue - you're from the suburbs, dude. Expensive to live there.

46 minutes to get to union on the dot! sometimes faster if they get those express trains where they skip stops

protip from the suburbs gotta haul ass to the 2nd floor go train thingiemabobber and get the one seat right beside where the stairs to the 3rd little seating floor is. you get like a 2 seat lane and a 3rd horizontal seat so when its busy you can put your feet up and nobody bitches cuz nobody wants the other spots and nobody sits beside you. file that away you may be thanking thrashtastic with your feet up one day and no obese coughing ppl beside you trying to make smalltalk w/ ya when you are trying to read or do stuff on your phone

^ for young'uns like us its all the hustle n bustle. nightlife and all that jazz. torontos pretty safe for a big city, lots to do. the suburbs are nice, but they get pretty boring. its for when you're older and want to settle down and start a family w/ the wife and all that stuff.

Haven't you ever seen "escort" ads in the newspaper?

I've never been on craiglist (thought I probably should, you can really save a lot of money that you don't need to waste), but I've heard that there's a popular demand for one night stand partners, particularly for threesomes like for couples that want to try out something now. I've heard that the most popular are giant black bodybuilders

lulz

Like I said, though, you got to live in a crappy city if you want a cheap house. Oakville, Grimsby, Burlington are not particularily rich cities (like middle-upper class), but look at houses in Welland, Niagara Falls, St Catherines, Hamilton even. All poor as shit shithole towns, and as a result all the living is cheap too.

Hell, I've seen entire houses (granted, they're small properties, and small houses) go for $50,000 here.

there are only one of those a cab (idk the official word for a train section thing so im gonna go w/ cab and hope in right). i literally edge ahead to get to the door and ****in elbow, push, and act like an ass saying sorry the entire time desperately trying to get to that seat. i need some sort of semblance of leg room. it isnt much but its better than a normal seat when someone is directly across.

^Oakville and Burlington are pretty rich to be fair. Oakville's real wealthy. Burlington certainly has pockets (I went to school w/ all the Lakeshore kids, you can just tell from Lakeshore that they're gonna have money). But my area of Burlington is like the ideal suburb so I suppose that's why even the shitty houses are expensive. Like, I did a bit of googling and it's ridiculous how much some of these houses sell for.

I mean, just look at this! I mean, how the hell

Like, I knew houses were more, I didn't realise they were that much more.
