Comparing Housing Prices After a Casino is Built
Back in May, the City Council of Toronto voted 40-4 against a casino in the Downtown core of Toronto. The debate of having a major casino built in Downtown Toronto was a heated one. On one hand, a casino would of created, “10,000” new jobs but on the other hand, Torontonians felt the City did not need 11,000 casino parking spaces at a cost of $1 billion and 7.5 football fields worth of slots and card tables.
There are many factors that go into the prices of housing but it is interesting to note that after a casino was built in the below Canadian cities, the average price for housing only moved slightly – except in Richmond, BC. However, today, the average price of housing in most of these cities, is greater than it was pre casino.
