Three Canadian Markets Quietly Continue To Grow

Home Inspector

Deciding where to buy a home or where to invest in property in Canada can be exciting. Some areas are growing significantly faster than others. Getting your hands on what you want now before the prices go up is important. Here are some options to think about.

Thunder Bay

Located in the Northern area of Ontario is Thunder Bay. This area continues to be build a stronger economy than it has had in the past. It is a wonderful place to buy a home to live in as well as commercial property. New businesses are thriving in this area and that is appealing to others considering following in those footsteps.

The fact that buying power is very strong in Thunder Bay makes it a great place to invest in a home to live in also. Many people are interested in moving to this area for business opportunities. The forecast here is continued growth so don’t drag your feet if you are interested in getting it all in motion.


There is a demand for quality homes to rent in the Winnipeg area. This is very encouraging to those looking to have investment property. With rentals, you can get ongoing income from them every single month. Once the property is paid for, everything you earn is going to be a profit. You can consider buying property and fixing it up to rent or even building new structures including apartments and condos.

There is no shortage of work, fun, and activities to take part in around the Winnipeg area. Many people commute here for work and they love the idea of being able to live there and reduce that time going back and forth.


For the past several years, Windsor has continued to grow in terms of homes available, and they are reasonably priced. This is your chance to get the size of home you want and the location for the best price. In the next 5 years, this area is expected to continue to grow and the prices are going to increase. You can save a great deal on your home investment by doing it now rather than a few years into the future.

There are quite a few rentals in this area, and that is a great market to consider getting involved with here too. While the growth isn’t as high as it is in Winnipeg, such opportunities certainly can’t be ignored. If you are interested in long term investments, getting in on the ground floor in these prime Canada areas should be important to you.

Finding True Value

As you look around Winnipeg and other locations in Canada for places to buy real estate, keep value in mind. Think about location in terms of commuting to work, places you like to visit, schools, and recreational activities. You also want to think about the quality of the home. It should be in a good neighborhood, well kept, and not have any serious issues.

While you may be impressed with the inside and outside view of the home, take an objective look. Don’t get too emotionally connected or you can overlook important elements. Look at the roof to make sure it is in good condition. Roofing issues can result in a huge expense soon after you move in.

Make sure any home you put an offer on is fully inspected by a professional but for you move forward with the contract. This will help to protect your investment and to ensure you are spending money on a home you can love to live in and continues to increase in value.
