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 since seen significant population and infrastructure growth. Many left the hustle and bustle of the loud urban living to get a slower and quieter lifestyle. Halton Hills is still close for a daily commute and many chose the area for the small town feel and tranquility.
As urban sprawl forces significant growth across the 905, Halton Hills has remained "small town" despite some large sub-divisions, particularly in south Georgetown. And while home buyers naturally push to the outskirts of the GTA to get more for their money, Halton Hills has remained one of the few areas in the GTA with constant price growth. Yes, you still get more here than what you'd pay for a bungalow in most parts of the city, however the average price for a detached 2 story house here is over $800,000.
Despite the prices and relatively low inventory, 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, and these communities also offer top sports, arts and community centres.
Halton Hills offers every type of real estate you are looking for from a 1-3 bedroom condos , townhomes, detached re-sales and new builds to 6+ bedroom farms on acres of land.
