Whitby Real Estate

Situated on the north shore of Lake Ontario, Whitby is home to around 120,000 people and is a suburb of Toronto. Many people drive the 30 minute commute into Toronto for jobs. During European settlement of the area in the late 1700s, the official surveyor of the land gave all of the communities’ names after cities that already existed in northern England. 

In the last decade, settlement in Whitby accelerated as city dwellers in Toronto began moving to the suburbs for a less hectic lifestyle. In the past 30 years, the population of Whitby has all but doubled, which has brought beautiful new homes and recent construction to the area. Modern architecture and open-concept homes are common in this peaceful suburban environment. 

Prices for the newest homes in town tend to reach into the $400,000 to $500,000 range, but homes built a decade or more ago offer the opportunity for less expensive real estate. The city is home to many townhouse-style homes with multiple floors and gorgeously modern interiors. In addition, the area also features a variety of condos that are perfect for couples who are just starting out and aren't ready to move into a single-family home. 

Residents have a variety of opportunities to experience nature at recreational facilities like the Lynde Shores Conservation Area and several parks that line the waterfront. Locals who want a challenging hike may also visit nearby Algonquin Park for the Centennial Ridges Trail which offers some gorgeous views of the Ontario countryside. 

Future homeowners who want the best of both worlds with an urban-style residence that's also close to recreation and the water will want to look at real estate in the south part of town. Families who seek a less metropolitan lifestyle will want to seek out homes in the north, where neighborhoods give way to farmland.
