More young Canadians believe owning a home is a very good investment, according to a new RBC home ownership poll.
It says 86 per cent of those aged 25-34 believe owning a house or condo is a solid investment, up from a reading of 78 per cent last year.

The bank also says its poll reveals that while 62 per cent of Canadians intend to buy a home with their spouse or partner, 28 per cent Canadians say they intend to buy a home by themselves.
Top factors considered by those who intend to buy this year include job stability and manageable debt.
And, among those likely to buy a home within the next two years, RBC says four-in-10 will be first time homebuyers.
