Homes for sale in Midland Ontario has been on the rise lately. In the Summer of 2019, the number of listed properties is at the highest it has been in 4 years.

The densest area of Midland is in and around the town centre. There are not many apartments or condos in big, tall buildings here. Most apartment buildings are less than 5-stories in Midland. Instead, you would be more likely to find a detached, single family dwelling for sale or for rent. This area has the best access to the restaurants and shopping on Midland’s downtown main street: King Street. Most of the schools in the district are in this area as well. Because of Midland’s size, it is still possible to walk to Little Park and waterfront or the Midland Harbor from the heart of the city.
North of Midland is the Sunnyside, Portage Park, and Midland Point areas. Housing here is highly desirable and has a price tag to match. Houses in Sunnyside and Portage Park are only about 5 minutes away from downtown Midland, but the slight commute means that properties here are closer to the Georgian Bay and waterfront views. Midland Point is 10 minutes away from downtown Midland, but much of the housing in this forested, rural area is right on the Bay.
To the West is Little Lake. While the properties that are closest to the lake are cottages, there is more traditional housing available further out from the Lake. Besides public water access at Little Lake Park, this area is also close the Midland YMCA, Huronia Museum, Huronia Mall, Mountainview Ski Centre, Georgian Bay General Hospital, and Georgian Bay District Secondary school.

What about Midland’s heritage? For those curious, Midland has several great outings lined up to help residents and visitors experience the town’s past. At a glance, the most colourful way to see Midland Heritage is in the 34 mural paintings that decorate the bricks of the downtown core. They depict vintage shops, founding moments, and historical scenes - a perfect way to get acquainted with the past before diving in. Chronologically speaking, the first site would be the pre-contact Huron/Wendat village set up by the Huronia Museum to highlight a First Settlement before the arrival of the French. When the French did arrive, they established Sainte-Marie Among the Hurons, and it is on that site where a replica and museum stand to preserve the history.
