The real estate industry has changed drastically in the last few months -- with Vancouver's market cooling due to new regulations, Toronto's heating up like never before, and Alberta expected to see a bit of a comeback.

That makes us wonder: Have opinions about the best place in Canada to invest changed?

Last year, CREW hosted two polls; the first one asking readers which province offers the best investment opportunities.

Exactly 50% of our readers agreed Ontario offers the best investment opportunities, followed by British Columbia (21%), Alberta (10%), Saskatchewan (7%), Quebec (6%), New Brunswick (3%), Nova Scotia (2%), and P.E.I (1%).

The second poll then asked readers which specific Ontario market provides the best opportunities.

A whopping 534 readers took part in that poll and 22% of those agreed Kitchener-Waterloo is the best place to invest.

The GTA (16%) came in second, followed by Hamilton (15%), Barrie (10%), Durham Region (9%), York Region (7%), London (6%), Niagara (5%), Guelph (4%), Oakville (3%), and Kingston (3%).

But, as mentioned, a lot can change in a year.

So we want our readers to weigh and let us know: What market are you most bullish on in 2017?
