Homes on the GO


Blog by Doriana Zohil, Broker of Record/Owner | April 16th, 2019


Toronto real estate continues to be hot. Re-sale detached home prices rose in February by 0.85% compared to the same time last year. Average selling price? $1,295,920. Condos are even hotter… with a 7.3% price increased compared to last year to an average of $612,213. So it’s no wonder first time home buyers are looking to the suburbs to find that single detached home with some form of yard for their kids to play in.

So just what deals are there to be had, without compromising your personal time in a lengthy commute? Well, there are plenty! Keeping the commute time under an hour on the GO train (to Union), and the price under the average Toronto condo price, here are some options:
  • Just under $600,000
    Downsview Park, York University, Dixie, and Pickering
     
  • Around $585,000
    Bramalea, Kennedy, and Ajax
     
  • About $550,000
    Malton, Etobicoke North, Meadowvale, Agincourt, and Whitby
     
  • Under $500,000
    Cooksville and Oshawa

So for less than the price of a condo in Toronto, you can own a detached home and be downtown in less than an hour. We can help you find that dream home for your family. Don’t wait to get into the market. Start now, start small, and stay patient.
