Wondering what annual salary you need to be earning to afford a home in Canada? That’s included too.
On average, the most expensive houses are in Vancouver, followed by Kelowna, which even beat out Toronto.
The average house price in Vancouver sits at $864,556, requiring an annual salary of over $140,000.
In Kelowna, you would have to be making about $130,000 a year to afford the average home, priced at about $785,415.

In the U.S., the priciest homes are also found on the West Coast, with the average San Francisco home priced at over $1.6 million. Americans have a little more wiggle room, though, with the average home in Detroit valued at about $64,110.
