Neighbourhood and Lifestyle
It’s hard not to be drawn to the quiet, community-oriented, feeling of this eastern area of the city. The rare ‘town-like’ feeling of East York brings together a diverse and tight-knit community – bound by their mutual appreciation of peace and quiet. Money Sense, Canada’s go-to personal finance website, voted East York as #21 of Toronto’s ’25 Best Neighbourhoods to Invest in’ in their feature ‘Best Deals in Real Estate 2016: Toronto’, and it’s would likely rank even higher today. There’s so much to love here. The proximity to open green space, local tourist attractions like the Ontario Science Centre, pastoral residential streets, and positioning close to local schools, make East York a natural selection when looking for a new home.
For those with a starter-home budget, this is one of the best areas to explore. It’s difficult to find this kind of variety of homes in one neighbourhood in the city – particularly one with this short a commute to the downtown core. And if you’re looking to escape the city, or need to commute further afield, there is easy access to the DVP. For nature close to home, the Lower Don Recreational trail is 0.5km away.
Homes in the East York neighbourhood, like most Toronto neighbourhoods, have seen a steady rise in pricing. The clear attraction to the neighbourhood can be seen in its abundant selection of post world war 2 bungalow-builds – which offer an excellent opportunity to get into the market and glimmers of hope for renovation-favourers.
