This is what a $1.2 million house looks like in Toronto vs other cities

Real estate prices may have hit a low plateau earlier this year, but according to market pros, prices in the GTA are on the rise again. Average listing prices in Toronto are currently hovering around the $1.2 million mark, offering up properties that'll land you, at the very least, a backyard. 

Here's what a $1.2 million house looks like in Toronto versus other cities. 

Toronto - $1,197,500 CAD

This humble 1,740 square-foot detached house in North York by Keele and Wilson comes in just below $1.2 million, with four bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a basement — fireplace included.

Staten Island, New York - $1,200,000 CAD

Good luck finding anything other than a condo with a measly budget of $1.2 million in downtown Manhattan. Just across Bayonne Bridge in quiet Staten Island, however, you can score a four bedroom house-turned-private office space with a big curved driveway.

On America's west coast, a few thousand extra will land you a Spanish pool home in the up-and-coming Glassell Park neighbourhood. You'll get a remodeled kitchen, new floors, and a deck that leads to an outdoor pool complete with a waterfall. Extra points for having a lemon tree.

Dubai - $1,187,899 CAD

As with most things in Dubai, wealth covers a lot of ground: 9,700 square feet, to be exact. This villa property comes with a sprawling green backyard, five huge bedrooms, each with their own walk-in closets for just under $1.2 million.

Buenos Aires - $1,201,529 CAD

In the private neighbourhood of Santa Maria de Tigre in the north zone of Buenos Aires, this house has four main rooms equipped with all the accoutrements of South American living: think swimming pool, tennis court, and options for a security system.
