Vancouver is listed as the third least affordable real estate market in a lot of surveys, after Hong Kong and Sydney. But it is acknowledged that Sydney has very big differences between areas.

It makes sense to me. Canada is a very big country (geographically), and Vancouver is the only major city with what most people would consider a mild climate.

If San Diego were the only option for a city with a mild climate in the US, it would be even more astronomically expensive than it is.

Consider also that salaries in Australia are, on average, at least nominally higher than Canada.

San Diego is actually surprisingly not too expensive when you consider its absolutely magnificent geographical location and how livable is. It should command higher prices than San Francisco but the Bay Area has a much stronger economy. In Vancouver the usual connection between strong economy and high housing prices breaks down.

I like SD, going to Tijuana is fun.

I live in Seattle going to Vancouver as the nearest big city is OK, but the traffic can be horrendous and makes me nervous.

If I had the money to live wherever I want it would be San Diego area. Probably the suburbs somewhere. Its really not that much more expensive than Seattle or Vancouver with as you stated more livable.

San Diego was my favorite city to eventually move (I was in Vancouver from 1999 to 2002 and since then I lived in Seattle) but I sadly discovered years ago that the ocean is not really swimmable, even in summer, without a wetsuit and I did not like the open ocean waves. I grew up in Sicily where we can swim for almost 6 months out of the year.

Many years ago I worked for few months in Tampa on a client project and I did like the city a lot, recently I visited again and I fell in love even more so much that I bought a house there last year. Beautiful beaches at short distances, warm waters and the kind of little coves coastline I like. Very vibrant city, great social environment and nightlife and great food, we absolutely love it. We are commuting there every 2 months or so for "work from home" stints until we will move permanently in few years.

My top cities in the US to live are San Diego, Tampa and Charleston.

I am glad an Indian himself is calling this out. I remember talking about international students ripping off food banks before and the usual suspects came out with their knee jerk reactions. A huge percentage of international student business is a scam.

I made a case study about Canada’s current situation and the findings are beyond devastating in every single field. The average new home purchase stands and 670.000$ while the rental average payments stands at 2.200$ per month while at the same time the average home price in the US is 430.000$ and the rental payments at 1.400$ despite the fact that American wages are 30% higher than the Canadian one. So Canadians’s are not able to find a new home are stay alone anymore while their wages do not increase. Trudeau imported more than 4 million low skilled immigrants in just 5 years in order to boost his country population but the results are disastrous at least. Based on these Bloomberg posted an article yesterday in which describes the demoralising situation of the Canadian economy and society.

Are you French-Canadian? Only French-Canadians put the dollar sign after the number, and use a period as a comma. English Canadians put the dollar sign before the dollar amount, and use commas in dollar figures.

Just wondering about your Canadian bona fides.
