Hello everyone,

for those who live in gatineau or ottawa, i have a few questions.

1) will it be possible to buy land(where one could build a small house plus garden) in ottawa or gatineau (not far from the city centre or downtown max 40mn drive) with only $60000 cad?

2) is ottawa's weather during winter closer to toronto's or to that of montreal quebec?


Thanks.

1) C$60,000 to pay for the whole house is not realistic. But it would make a good down payment on a house and then you would have to take out a mortgage for the rest.

The least expensive housing around Ottawa and Gatineau is in small towns outside of Gatineau (generally north east) and in Eastern Ontario (generally due east).

To give you an idea...

Ottawa and environs:
Ottawa Real Estate Board - MLS®

Gatineau and environs:
www.avecunagent.com

2) Ottawa's climate is much more similar to Montreal. Almost identical in fact. Plus, summer in Ottawa is almost exactly the same as Toronto but winter in Ottawa is colder than Toronto.

no, the C$60,000 would only be for the land and not for the whole house. i've been looking around it seems that there is no land sale in or around ottawa (30-45 minutes from the city centre.). which is quite surprising as canada is quite a big country.

I just went on the two sites I gave you and there is certainly land for sale on there. Choose "lots" on the search page for the Ottawa site, and "Terrains" or "Terres" on the Gatineau page*.

Both the cities of Ottawa and Gatineau are fairly large and there is some land for sale within their boundaries. Though it is quite expensive. The main municipalities outside of Ottawa would be Clarence-Rockland, Russell, Arnprior, Mississippi Mills and North Grenville. The main ones outside of Gatineau are Val-des-Monts, Cantley, Chelsea, Pontiac and La Pêche (Wakefield). This should help you in your search.
