With the average price of a single detached Whitehorse home hitting a new high of $427,000 in the second quarter, it’s little wonder affordable housing is a key Yukon election issue.
Figures released by the Yukon Bureau of Statistics this week show housing prices have been steadily climbing since 2005 when the average price for a single detached home was only $200,000.
Although the price is going up, the number of homes that changed hands between April and June this year was at an all-time low of 76. About 50 condominiums were sold with the average price being $268,000.
