I think I made the right call in waiting to buy, I was able to put down a bigger downpayment, and still have tons of savings in the bank in case of some unexpected emergency. Prices seem to have gone up quite a bit in Barrie over the last year. Not that I care as I have no intention to sell any time soon.
You should of bought in 2012 when you started this thread. Can you imagine how much you would of made in equity in 5 years if you bought in Stouffville? I bought an investment in 2015 close to keswick (East Gwillimbury) and its already increased in value 350K! I imagine you spent 90-100K on rent in 5 years.
