For a period in the early 2000s, Milton, Ontario was Canada’s fastest growing municipality. The town now has a population of over 100,000 people, showing that the growth has slowed in recent years, but only by a little. Milton is a part of the Greater Toronto Area, located within the Halton Region. Residents are drawn to Milton because of its easy access to Toronto and its own booming commerce sector.
Real Estate in Milton Ontario
Firstly, where is Milton? It’s 25 minutes north of Burlington, 25 minutes northwest of Oakville, and just 50 minutes southwest of the Toronto core. The city spans about 40 square kilometres and has direct access to the 400 series Highway. Milton may have grown rapidly, but along the way, it has developed a strong community and a commitment to industry that makes this town more than just a commuter hub for Toronto.
Milton’s closest neighbour, Oakville, sports some of the highest real estate prices in the area. Unlike Hamilton, Burlington, and Oakville, Milton isn’t on the waters of Lake Ontario, but it makes up for it with a lower average residential sale price in the mid $900,000s. As is the case with a lot of GTA cities, a detached property in Milton will almost always be listed above the average while condos, townhouses, and sometimes semi-detached properties will be within the $650,000 to $950,000 range depending on size and type. New condos and homes are being proposed and built as the city grows, so this helps to make up for the low inventory issue that many similar cities have in common.
