So do you live in a house or an apartment?

I find that a lot of young families now live in houses instead of apartments. In fact I don't know anyone who lives in apartments except for me.

I live in an apartment with my hubby and 2 kids. We are looking at listings but with a house comes many bills. We would like to have more than 5% to get a house so the mortgage will be affordable. With kids and other unexpected things that come up to take our money away, its a big responsibility and decision to buy a house. So we are making sure we will be able to sustain a house without stress. For now, the apartment it is!!!!

No, it's not just you! My DH, DD and I live in a 2-bedroom condo in Downsview, and before that we were in a 1-bedroom in North Toronto. We'd love to have a house, but staying in the city and being able to live without a car is a higher priority right now!

We live in an apartment as well. We are both kind of new to Canada so don't have the finances to buy a house yet. We live in North York and the house prices here are crazy!! We will probably end up buying a house well out of the city when we do.

I live in an apartment in a crappy area. Since I am going to school and we are kind of young we can't afford a house yet.

I'm glad I'm not the only one! We have a beautiful apt, but I feel like a bum sometime for not being able to give my kid a house with a nice backyard to play in.

We live in an apt. I find even with two incomes it's almost impossible to buy a house anywhere downtown. All my friends who own homes had help from their parents or were smart enough to listen to their guidance councilors and went into law or medicine.

I live in an apt in my area if we wanted to live in a house we'd need to strike it rich, houses start around 1mil... we plan to buy a house out of the city in the next 5 years, maybe in Vaughn, Maple, Uxbridge or Burlington
