Okay, Canadians.


I watch a lot of HGTV and DIY, so when some one pays $500,000 for a house what is that in USA dollars? 

I see these programs where 25 years olds buy house for $650,000 and I can only think WTF? Because the houses are usually just plain ole houses. 

If that is how expensive houses really are no wonder rental properties are so popular.

Also are detached homes like a rarity?  

On the flipside, when I watch House Hunters I get MAAAAD when I see people quibbling over $5000 in purchase price, because that amounts than less to $10/month over the length of the mortgage.

I’m also often jealous when I see beautiful homes with large yards for half what I paid for my shitty townhouse.
