The cost? $55,000.
I believe you live in NFL......is the river called the Humber? You must live near Corner Brook.

This.

From what I've heard he bought a house right up against the lake on lakeshore rd. Avg price on Burlington/Oakville lakeshore stretch (like 55 houses or so) is 2mill.

Wow, $1.7m for that seems like a bargain. Just few blocks south of there on the Danforth the going rate for houses 1/3 the size with almost no yard is in the $1m range or a bit less. I would have guessed $3m if I hadn't seen the price and just the pics/location.

I work in real estate. Unless you're talking about land in Detroit, $55,000 won't get you anything, especially with how you described it.

That is surprisingly, and relatively, not a lot of money. I recently saw a house at Jones and Queen on the MLS for 1.1 million. JONES AND QUEEN!

Welcome to the Maritimes!! Actually, my house is quite interesting. Built in 1876, there is no framing to the walls at all. They are solid wood, 16 to 20 inches wide and 3 1/2 inches thick running vertically. It's called balloon framing. Aside from say concrete or ICF, you'd never find a more solid house. You'd also have a hard time finding lumber that size today.

You live in Southern NB and don't know where the world's #1 salmon river is?

Miramichi. Trust me, you can get all kinds of things for great prices. Go on MLS sometime.

Fredericton, Saint John or Moncton are different stories.

I said I can see the water. There's a road between me and it.

You must not follow real estate much.

http://www.realtor.ca/propertyDetail...ey=-1816176636

http://www.realtor.ca/propertyDetail...Key=-472612520

http://www.realtor.ca/propertyDetail...ey=-2143282772

15 acres for $34,900 only 15 minutes from Moncton:

http://www.realtor.ca/propertyDetail...Key=1423965007

Geez a simple MLS search yields all kinds of waterfront properties for under $50,000. My initial search of just one site yielded around 200 properties for sale with over an acre on waterfront for less than $50,000.

For $2.5 M, close to Moncton (considered one of the best cities in the country) you can get 20 bedrooms, 11 bathrooms, 14, 423 sqft sitting on 458 acres of land with its own 40 acre stocked lake. It also comes with 4 islands, picnic areas, row boats, paddle boats, tennis courts, 2 garages, greenhouse, heavy equipment included.

In a recent national study where they were ranking the top 10 cities for buying a home, they actually ranked the province of New Brunswick as the #1 "city". Basically because on the whole, housing is extremely affordable, especially when you factor in that from just about anywhere, you can drive 10 minutes and find a beach, a lake, a town, a forest, you name it.

If you work in real estate, do a basic search on MLS.

Toronto real estate is pretty crazy, basically shift all prices up by X dollars and you are close to other markets.

But I bet there enough Gilmour fans in the GTA he will get a buyer just for that. Maybe it should come with a Dougie shrine?

Thats actually a great price, all things considered. Not a fan of the location, but a nice crib regardless..


I was thinking of buying it, until I realized I'm about 1.1 short.

He's making plans to demand a trade. Burke really needs to look in the mirror, he's not getting the job done.

Jesus, Jones and Queen? I know gentrification has taken hold of the area but man, when I grew up in that area that corner was straight crackheads. There's no way even in the over-inflated market right now that a house at Jones and Queen is worth a mil. Nothing that close to the Duke is lol...
