Canadians’ obsession with real estate
We knew that Canadians were obsessed with real estate, but we wanted to know just how much so we conducted a quick study.
We took our results and put them in this infographic for you! Here are the key findings:
- Almost all Canadians aged 30 to 50 are interested in real estate, with over one in ten describing themselves as real estate obsessed.
- One in four Canadians aged 30 to 50 are likely to search for real estate professionals online in the future.
- A large majority are interested in an online service to search for real estate agents. An even higher proportion of those living in the GTA say the same.
- According to Canadians aged 30 to 50, real estate obsessed people are most likely to browse online listings regularly, attend open houses even when they aren’t looking to buy a property, and drive around their neighbourhood looking at properties that are for sale.
- Many Canadians aged 30 to 50 know someone (22%) who they would describe as real estate obsessed.
- Over a quarter of all Canadians have attended an open house in the last year.
