About East York
Before Toronto became a “megacity”, in 1998, East York was known as Canada’s only borough. Located just near the mouth of the Don River, East York borders Scarborough to the east, Old Toronto to the west, and North York to the north.
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’. It’s 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.
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. 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.
