CORNWALL, Ontario – The City of Cornwall has ranked as the third best city in which to buy a home by University Magazine. Only Windsor, ON and Moncton, NB ranked higher on this year’s list.
“It is nice to see others recognize what people living here have known for a long time: Cornwall is a great place to live, work and raise a family,” said Mayor Bernadette Clement in a Choose Cornwall story.
University Magazine notes that the average home price in Cornwall is $286,000, a 10 per cent increase from 2010. The magazine also claims that Cornwall is Canada’s cheapest city to live in. In an article in University Magazine from June 14, Cornwall is actually ranked fourth cheapest city in Canada in which to live.
“We understand that not everyone can afford a million dollars for their first house, so we looked at choices that were less than $600,000,” wrote Melissa Dimon, Editor in Chief in the same Choose Cornwall story. “Because we realize that money isn’t everything, we also looked at aspects like schools and activities to do with kids and pets.”
