Median house prices in Nova Scotia 2018-2020

The average house price in Nova Scotia in 2020 was forecasted to be 267,500 Canadian dollars. The median home prices in this province have been steadily climbing since 2018.

Exploding population growth in recent years

Nova Scotia is the second smallest province after Prince Edward Island, and had a population of just under one million in 2018. The population of this province was relatively steady between 2000 and 2015, but has taken off since then. This sudden growth may be a factor in the increasing house prices, as demand also increases due to the greater number of residents looking for homes.

The future of housing affordability in Nova Scotia

Halifax, the provincial capital, had an affordable housing market as of 2018, with mortgage payments only constituting about 30 percent of average household incomes. The number of housing starts in the region has increased in the past few years, which also suggests an increase in demand. Only time will tell whether this will ensure a sufficient supply of homes for the region in response to its growing population.
