The most expensive house in Canada isn’t in Vancouver. It isn’t even in Toronto. It’s on the outskirts of Calgary:
Property values are going up in the ultra-luxury market. Of the 20 Most Expensive Homes In The World owned by members of the Forbes Billionaires List, only six were priced at less than $100 million. Several either traded hands or boast an assessed value of more than twice that figure. The least expensive of these ultra-pricey homes traded hands for $88 million.
For the first time in a long time, the most expensive house in Canada isn’t in Vancouver. It isn’t even in Toronto. It’s on the outskirts of Calgary, a sure sign that the long-running oil boom has added the Alberta city to the list of Canadian markets with outrageous prices. A $37.8-million property once belonged to Ford family (the car, not the major).
