Owning a million dollar home can mean dramatically different things, depending on where you live in Canada.

Royal LePage released a report on Thursday analyzing million dollar properties (homes between $950,000 and $1,050,000) in Canada as of Dec. 2023. It found that, on average, $1 million would get you a home with 1,760 square feet of living space. That is essentially unchanged from what you could get in December of last year, when a million dollars fetched a home of 1,763 square feet of space.

But how far a million dollars will go depends on where you want to buy a home. Prospective buyers can get the most out of their money in Edmonton, where a million dollars will

From outside, the building at 1171-1177 East 14th Avenue is unremarkable: a pitched roof, multiple entrances, and covered patio are all common features in a three-story East Van edifice. But inside, the tenants of the multiplex’s seven rental units have found themselves battling a series of legal loopholes that could impact renters all over Vancouver. 

The building was sold in 2021. In 2022, new landlord Andrzej Kowalski submitted a redevelopment permit to the city. More recently, tenants found out he is planning to evict the existing renters, and convert the long-standing apartments into four strata condos—turning seven affordable rentals into fewer, pricier homes for sale. 

“The city is supposed to be trying to establish affordable housing,” says Terry McIntosh, a 75-year-old botanist who has lived in a two-bed apartment in the

Celebrity real estate agent Mauricio Umansky warns 'perfect storm' of housing unaffordability brewing

Celebrity real estate agent Mauricio Umansky is sounding the alarm over the “perfect storm of total unaffordability” brewing in the housing market. 

Mauricio Umansky, The Agency founder and CEO, reacted to the state of the housing market after the 30-year fixed mortgage rate hit its highest level since early December.

“We’ve got super high interest rates above 7%. Mortgage applications are as low as they’ve been since 1995. And then we’ve got no supply,” he said during his appearance on “The Claman Countdown” Wednesday. 

Umansky said we should not expect to see prices drop until we start “seeing some pain and some supply.”


“Until we start seeing the pain and prices drop, I don’t see the government

Should homebuyers wait for bigger rate drops or jump back into the market now?

Home sales in December and January bounced back from the lows of the latter part of 2023, but with the volume of sales still well below the 10-year average, prices continue to decline in many markets, writes Erica Alini. Would-be buyers are largely waiting for borrowing costs to drop lower, as several financial analysts forecast the Bank of Canada’s interest rate won’t be cut until later this summer. But some economists believe prices and competition will quickly heat up by then as borrowing becomes less expensive. For those who could afford to

Bradley Cooper’s Homes: A Peek Inside His Real Estate Portfolio

Bradley Cooper’s homes are what you may expect for a star of his caliber: an NYC penthouse and multiple California pads. His recent rumored purchase, however, is something a bit more unexpected—but more on that later.

The Maestro filmmaker is up for several Oscars this year, marking a tremendous benchmark in his creative trajectory. He’s come a long way from his early breakout roles in Wedding Crashers and The Hangover, and over the years the multihyphenate’s real estate decisions have been measured and intentional. The care that he pours into each residence shows. The Nightmare Alley star worked with designer Santillana de Chanaleilles to completely reimagine his Venice bungalow, for instance. Below, we’ve rounded up several of Cooper’s most distinguished homes, each with its own personality and flair.

When Cooper purchased his first home—a $1.19 million secluded bungalow in Venice Beach—in 2004, he had already
