Interesting information in one of the FCIQ articles called: “Condominiums: No Longer Restricted to Large Urban Centres”
It mentions that over the past 10 years (from 2000 to 2010), the condo market in Quebec has rapidly increased with sales that grew by 124% compared to that of single family homes which only went up to 41%. So more condos were sold than family homes.
You’d think that condos were only heading the market on urban areas, but they are saying: “Saint-Hyacinthe, Saint-Jean-sur-Richelieu and Granby, condominium sales accounted respectively for 20, 14 and 12 per cent of all residential sales.”
Smaller urban centers are taking up condo living, it isn’t a downtown thing any more. And with some many options, prices and styles for condos, it doesn’t surprise you that young buyers are deciding for a more practical living quarters, such as a condo over purchasing a house.
