@priyawouldntwannabeya:  There are no listings for anything at that price where I live. $200,000 will not let you enter the market in Vancouver.

For Victoria proper, you’re looking at a 1-bedroom condo, maybe 2 bedroom if it’s an older building.  Further out, in Colwood and Langford, you might be able to get a townhouse.

$199,900 gets you this adorable house. 3BR/1.5BA, 1250 sq ft. 

However, as cute as it is, it’s a really sketchy part of town. It’s been on the market for almost a year because of the location. 

Other $200k options in my area are 1-2BR decent apartments/condos and houses in the ghetto.

In my area (Boston) you could get a great parking space for $200k.

You can get a 1BR 1BA condo, 600sqft for $199,000. In a BAD area.

@priyawouldntwannabeya:  I live in Toronto, and $200,000 doesn’t buy anything. NOTHING. Maybe if you are lucky you will get a 450 sq. ft. condo or something – but only if there’s something wrong/undesireable about it.

A teeny tiny basic condo in the worst corner of the city.
