But Ontario, Alberta, and the Prairies had respondents that were more likely to go for the jugular when bidding for their dream home. So how big was the difference?
32% of Manitoba and Saskatchewan respondents ranked first for willingness to fight for their dream home. 28% of Ontario buyers and 25% of Alberta buyers felt the same way, while only 23% in BC would go the extra mile.
Other stats from the study note that 52% of those surveyed are willing to pony up 100 to 110% of a home’s asking price, and 27% said they’d pay between 100 to 120%.
What’s your take on these stats? Are you likely to engage in a bidding war and pay above the asking price?
