The cities where the surveys ran included:
In Montréal, things are quite a bit different. The numbers show that 24% of potential buyers will be looking at condos, which has fallen 3 points. At the same time, the interest in a house has gone up 16 points to 62% from 46% last fall.
In Toronto numbers went up 11 points for a condo to 31% while in Vancouver the interest in condos has gone down five points to 28%.
The average price for a condo apartment in Calgary has gone up to $297,530, which is a rise of 6.91% when compared to last year. So far in 2013 there have been 2,034 condos sold from the listings which is an increase of 9.53% when compared to last year's figures during the same time frame.
Condo ownership is looking like a great option to more people here in Calgary and Toronto while less people are looking for a condo in Vancouver and Montréal. It will be interesting to see what the next poll shows and whether the same figures hold true in the upcoming future.
