The only way to get around the winters coldest parts of Ontario is to rent your home in an area with no snowfall and/or a low-lying roof.
According to a study from the University of Toronto, Ontario residents are paying more than $7,000 for a house or apartment in the winter months, up from about $5,000 a decade ago.
That means that if you’re looking to buy a home this winter, it’s better to find an area that’s not so hot, such as a rural or rural-style home.
“If you are in a rural area and your budget is limited and you don’t have much space, then you may need to look at your home options in a colder climate,” says Andrew O’Brien, a real estate agent in Scarborough, Ont.
“That’s where we’ve seen an increase in the number of properties that are renting out.”
There are plenty of people who can afford to rent in a cold climate, but it’s not as easy as just getting a new car and having the money.””
It’s not a big city area, but if you look at the GTA you’ll see it’s pretty much a rental market,” he says.
“There are plenty of people who can afford to rent in a cold climate, but it’s not as easy as just getting a new car and having the money.”
In other areas, people may have to make do with their old homes.
“You can still rent out a lot of the same homes in a year,” says Chris Fergus, a property consultant in Toronto.
“It’s going to be a lot more expensive than it was, but you can still do it, as long as you are careful with the materials and the style of the home.”
You can also rent out your home to someone else if you’ve got a mortgage or you have a spouse or kids in college.
“The people who are renting the houses are going to need to have the funds for that,” he explains.
“They might have to put down more than the mortgage, but I would say that’s a good reason to have someone else to manage that.”
What you need to know about snowfallThe weather can get a little bit tricky if you live in an urban area.
“We’re in a pretty big city,” O’Connor says.
“The city will have a little snow on the ground.”
The coldest months are typically March and April.
In this time of year, most of the city is under a foot of snow.
“That’s not necessarily bad, but we’ll have a lot fewer cars, so it’s going be harder to get in and out of the parks and it’s less likely to be safe to do that,” Ojbom says.
There’s also the fact that people may be staying at home with their pets or children.
“It can be very difficult for people to get to work,” he warns.
“So if you have pets, they may need your permission to go out.
You’re also going to have to deal with people who don’t want to come in and go out of their house.”
