Many people have joked that if either Trump OR Clinton get elected they are moving to Canada. Even if this isn’t a reality, many people in Ventura County have said, “It is too expensive here! I’m moving out of California to actually afford a home and a lifestyle I want!” This is very common in places like Ventura County where home values are very high. People in California, especially along the coast, pay for expensive homes because of weather, scenery etc …Regardless of who becomes president, however, it is a fact that home values are cheaper in other parts of the country and Canada. Many have moved from California and relocated in other areas in order to achieve the life they are looking for.
In order to give you more specific details of this difference, I’ve compared recent homes for sale in THREE locations: Camarillo, California, Denver, Colorado and Thunder Bay Ontario, Canada. In order to give a proper comparison, I’ve included the same specifications for each: 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom, about 1800 square foot home on a 7000 square foot lot in comparable neighborhoods. You will notice that Denver and Thunder Bay are much cheaper for a 3+2 than Camarillo. There are very expensive areas of Canada and Denver with a higher average home price, but I chose family style communities like Camarillo. The question is, do you stay and live in Ventura County with high home prices, or make the move to another place because your new president will be________? You decide. Let me know if I can help you relocate or find a new home in Ventura County. Here are the results with pictures:
Camarillo- 3 beds, 2 baths, $540,000
Denver(Highlands Ranch Area)- 3 bed, 2 bath, $335,000
Thunder Bay, Ontario, Canada- 3 bed, 2 bath, $374,900
