In the market 

The average sale price for a home in Halifax in 2015 was $278,000. We ran the real estate gamut to give you a glimpse of what that kind of budget can get you.


The digs: Built in 2007, this semi-detached two-storey at 59 Bridgeview Drive features three spacious bedrooms and four (count 'em) bathrooms with Palladian finishes like vaulted ceilings, large windows and Greco-style columns.

The neighbourhood: Located just behind The Dingle and Sir Sanford Fleming Park, this family home is only a few minutes to Mumford Road and other major arteries (by bus or car). Close to schools and community recreation.

The perks: The heated garage is perfect for icy winters, and the large patio in a treed backyard make this an ideal spot for summer BBQs. There's also a finished main-floor family room, central vac and stone landscaping.


The digs: A 64-year-old four-bedroom home at 5429 Duffus Street with one full and one half-bathroom, ideal for new and growing families. New windows, roof, siding and flooring, plus lots of natural light make it a winner.

The neighbourhood: Located in Halifax's north end, Duffus Street has easy access to both bridges, the Windsor exchange and downtown-bound bus routes. Also close to schools and neighbourhood restos.

The perks: The cozy living space hits around 1,000 square feet but the gigantic backyard (seriously huge) takes the property's footprint to over 8,000 square feet. Want a basketball court out there? No problem.


The digs: A taste of Halifax's south end at the top of the Bedford Basin, the airy and open 19 Tophill Drive, is a three-bed, two-bath character home has over 1,500 square feet of living space, hardwood floors and a working fireplace.

The neighbourhood: Just a quick drive to Sunnyside Mall, The Chickenburger and all Bedford amenities and a short walk to Admiral Cove Park with easy access to the Bedford Bypass and Burnside.

The perks: A glorious sun room, a detached garage, eat-in kitchen, recent bathroom renos, cool-shaped windows, lots of lawn and mature landscaping in a quiet, rustic country setting.


The digs: Sit back and watch the waves in this one-bed, one-bath sixth-floor King's Wharf condo (607-15 Kings Wharf Place), built in 2013. Luxuries include a granite and stainless steel kitchen, walk-in closet and big, wide windows.

The neighbourhood: Downtown Dartmouth is quickly becoming one of the coolest areas in town, with a beer bar, restaurants, galleries and boutiques all within walking distance to the ferry.

The perks: This stellar harbour- and canal-view condo is 900 square feet, but footage increases with the patio, fitness centre and in-building coffee shop.
