LOOKING TO DOWNSIZE?

You're Not Alone

Throughout the pandemic, residents of the large cities of Toronto and Hamilton began to lose their infatuation with city living.

Sales in the core of Toronto fell early in the pandemic as residents escaped confined city living, but now that the city has re-opened, the market has picked up. As we emerge from pandemic restrictions, home prices within and in the surrounding cities of Toronto are now skyrocketing. Demand, low inventory levels, and record low interest rates have created a unique, red-hot real estate market. Many buyers have been priced out of single-family homes around Toronto and are either having to turn towards condos or move further out. But for many, the prospect of escaping city life is inviting.

Remote Workers Move to Niagara

With more people working remotely than ever before across Canada, city residents are taking advantage of their new work conditions. The Niagara region has seen an influx of residents from around Ontario, but particularly Toronto. City dwellers are looking for more space and better quality of living outside the big city. They are choosing this small town for its close-knit community vibe and beautiful environment. They are saying goodbye to crowds and hello to wineries and open spaces.

#4 Proximity to the Greater Toronto Area
