You’ve heard the news: a detached home in the city of Toronto will cost you $1.28 million, with the average price of all homes (including condos and attached homes) is $728,051. Fleeing from the madness is probably your best bet. Getting away from the crazed real estate market in Toronto and buying in Collingwood, where the average buyer can actually afford a house is sure to pay off for you in the end. Let’s look at what you can get for $500,000 - $750,000 (under Toronto’s average for all homes) in Collingwood, with these great Collingwood properties for sale.
