Here is our list of the top websites you should visit when looking for a new home in Québec

Centris.ca
This is THE website to visit that features every single house for sale with a real estate agent. If you notice a house for sale with a real estate agent’s sign, it is definitely featured on Centris.ca. The website is really easy to use and each house profile is normally very detailed—with pictures as proof!

DuProprio.com
DuProprio.com is one of the most visited real estate websites in Québec. Sellers display their homes for sale for a flat fee. However, these houses for sale do not appear on Centris.ca. So make sure you take a look at this website!

Kijiji.ca
No, Kijiji is not only for finding that ever-elusive “almost like new” ping pong table or a used car that “never was used in the winter.” You can also browse for houses for sale that cannot be found anywhere else. Homeowners create and display their own ads to sell their properties.

LesPac.com
Here’s another must-see classifieds website that has a huge section dedicated to houses for sale. Again, these homes may be found on other websites; however, why risk missing out on that dream home?

Publimaison.ca
Advertising on this website is free (for the basic service), which explains its popularity. You can find houses that are for sale by real estate agents and individual homeowners.

The best websites to find a luxury home

Are you looking for a luxury home in Québec? Here are two suggestions for people looking to invest in over $600 000 in a new property.

La Collection RE/MAX
Take a look at the largest website that features luxury homes (displayed using a map, mosaic or list). All houses are presented as being luxury or high-end homes. But remember: home prices start and $600 000 and over.

Sotheby’s
This real estate web site is renowned for its luxurious listings. It has offices across Canada. However, not all the houses that are featured are necessarily considered as luxury homes. Their filtering options simply enable you to search for houses based on specific and unique criteria. Make sure you visit the site’s “Extraordinary Estates” and “Perfect Pools” sections. You’ll be amazed!

Key takeaways

  • Centris.ca features all houses that are for sale with real estate agents.
  • Homes for sale can be found on several websites at the same time. Visit more than one to find the house of your dreams.
