Halton Hills Real Estate:
Halton Hills has seen dramatic changes over the past 20 years in real estate. From a sleepy hollow in the early 90's to a sought after community in the 2000's. Towns like Georgetown, Guelph, Acton and Erin have seen great growth in their communities. In the 90's it was due to many leaving the hustle and bustle of the loud urban living to get a slower and quieter lifestyle. These areas are still close for a work commute many went with the commute to come home to the tranquility of their neighbourhood. As time went on we saw a change in this area as price became the issue. Buyers having an opportunity to buy and get more for less than the large cities in the south. It is still less expensive in these areasthan the city but we have seen the values of homes and properties increase dramatically over the past decade. I believe the investment is still great in Halton Hills especially with what the area offers to families at their doorstep. We have discussed the green space and the natural beauty of the area but these communities offer top sports, arts and community centres. The schools are very strong and have strengthened their high reputation over the past decade.
Halton Hills offers every type of real estate you are looking for from a 1 bedroom condo to a 6 bedroom farm house on more than an acre of land. Many of the communities offers options from townhouses and splits to large detached homes on large lots. Prices have increased over the past years but there are still sme great deals to be found and if you are comparing to Toronto or Mississauga you will find much beter deals.
