Whether you are planning on moving down the street or across the Country these Canadian house hunting sites will help you find the home of your dreams without even leaving your house!
MLS - Realtors from across Canada post all their listing here. All you need to do is put in the city and province that you are interested in, the price range you are looking for and you can begin your search. You can even narrow down the list by being more specific and choosing how many bedrooms and bathrooms you want or if you are looking for a fireplace, a pool, or even a water front view.
Property Guys - If you are looking to sell your house but do not want to fork over a chunk of the cash to some realtor then property guys is what your looking for. They provide you with everything you need to sell you home yourself and even advertise it on their site! If you are looking to buy a house Property Guys might not be a bad place to look, as a result of not paying the pricey realtor fee most people will sell their house for a cheaper price. It works out great for both buyer and seller!
Com Zero - This company works basically the same as Property guys. You can buy everything you need to advertise your house and sell your house on your own without the help of a realtor; the only difference is that these guys do it for cheaper! The only downside is that since the company is new it is only currently located in Grande Prairie, Alberta. Don't worry though, they are in the works of expanding throughout Canada and should be in a city near you soon! As for the residents of Grande Prairie don't be discouraged at the fact that this company is so new, one look at their site will show you that these guys know how to sell!
KIJIJI – This site can be a great tool for house hunting (among many other things). To use it simply click the Province you want and the city closest to the area you are looking for (for example if you were looking for Chase, British Columbia you would choose Kamloops). Once you do this you can check what houses are for sale (or rent) by looking through the “Housing” section. Many of the houses are "for sale by owner" which means you may run into some pretty good deals.
You can also find some house listings directly from the realtor sites. Here are some of Canada’s different realtor sites.
REMAX (located all across Canada)
CENTURY 21 (located all across Canada)
SUTTON GROUP (located in all Canadian Provinces but not in the Territories)
