Toronto vs Ottawa - Real Estate

Ottawa vs. Toronto Real Estate Debate 

Picture this...

Long weekend, family dinners, fun times right? Around our dinner table, there are so many topics to be discussed and no denying that Real Estate is going to be one of them!


My name is Karen MacDonald from the Hamre Real Estate Team at RE/MAX Affiliates in Ottawa, here with my son-in-law; Dakota McLaren from McLaren Real Estate Partners at RE/MAX Real Estate Centre.


Over the weekend we were debating which city is best to live in; Ottawa or Toronto?


Dakota led with how diverse and multicultural Toronto is.

I followed up with the incredible work-life balance in Ottawa which is why family life is so wonderful here.

Dakota then made a great point about Toronto's fun nightlife and endless activities to do around the city.

I then made sure to remind him how beautiful Ottawa is with all its greenery and nature.

So far both cities were tied with different pros but then we got down to business discussing the differences in Real Estate.

✈Known as a Destination City, it wasn't hard to argue that I believe Ottawa is the better investment. Especially since it is more affordable and I believe you get the better value.

Dakota made some good points about Toronto having steady, consistent growth and lower market fluctuations; which leads him to believe it is the safer investment.

Either way, we didn't reach an agreement.

Both are great cities to live in so the final thing to consider is whether you'd rather cheer for the Sens or the Leafs!

Ignore the part where Dakota mentions the Leafs winning over the weekend.

At the end of the day, whether you are looking for assistance in Toronto and the GTA or the Ottawa Market, between Dakota and I we've got all your real estate needs covered!

Let us know in the comments which city you think is better and why. I need ammo for the next time he visits.

Thank you for tuning into our Real Estate Toronto vs. Ottawa family debate with Karen MacDonald from the Hamre Real Estate Team at RE/MAX Affiliates and Dakota McLaren from McLaren Real Estate Partners at RE/MAX Real Estate Centre.
