What you can get for $300K in the Montreal area

Thinking of buying a home? Here's a sample of what's available in different parts of the city.

From multi-level homes to condos, your return for median home price varies widely by location

The asking price for a two-bedroom unit in this multiplex in the Plateau is $319,000. (

Residential sales in the greater Montreal area were up in February compared to the same time last year, according to the Greater Montreal Real Estate Board.

The association says the $300,000 price point is key in those statistics.

The median price of single-family homes reached $296,662 in February across the metropolitan region, an increase of four per cent relative to the same month in 2016. 

The sale of homes that were priced above $500,000 jumped 19 per cent in the metropolitan area compared to last year, said the president of the GMREB board of directors, Daniel Dagenais.

However, for homes priced below $300,000, there was a six per cent decrease in activity. Condo sales saw the strongest growth in February with an 11 per cent jump.

Looking at what $300,000 can buy in Montreal and the surrounding area showed that condos are plentiful in that price range but single-family homes are harder to come by.

And, of course, it depends where you look.
