$750,000 Toronto Real Estate Listing Looks Like It Came Out Of A Horror Movie With how expensive housing in Toronto is, $750,000 for a house downtown sounds pretty decent, right? Well, when they say something's too good to be true, it probably is.

Houses in the neighbourhood on average go for more than $1 million. This listing's pictures speak for themselves. It doesn't look bad on the outside. Nice and red. The inside tells a different story.

New mortgage stress test rules will block 50,000 people from buying: mortgage group

New mortgage stress test rules will block 50,000 people from buying: mortgage group New rules aimed at cracking down on the mortgage market will result in 100,000 people failing a stress test of their finances, and about half of them will be blocked from buying a home. That's one of the major takeaways of a new report published Tuesday from Mortgage Professionals Canada, an industry group that represents 11,500 mortgage brokers, lenders and insurers. The federal government has moved seven times since 2008 to tighten rules surrounding the real estate market, and practically every time, the market has shrugged off tighter rules around areas like maximum debt loads and amortization periods. But new rules implemented in October could be different.

5 Best Cities To Live In Where Houses Are Under $400K

5 Best Cities To Live In Where Houses Are Under $400K Fed up with high house prices in Toronto or Vancouver? Thinking of packing up and moving elsewhere? We hear ya. With the average price of a single-family home in both these cities well above $1 million, plenty of people in Canada's priciest cities are looking for alternatives. Under the federal government's new mortgage rules, the average-earning household in Canada — with a total income of $80,000 — can get a mortgage of around $380,000 today (assuming a 25-year mortgage at three per cent). That, plus the down payment, is what an average household in Canada can afford. So we combined the Bank of Montreal's labour market report card with data on house prices from the Canadian Real Estate Association to come up with a ranking of the best cities to set up shop, where an average home costs less than $400,000.
