In 2018, MoneySense named Oakville the best place to live in Canada - and the nearly 200,000 residents of this southern Ontario town would have to agree. Where is Oakville? The town is on Lake Ontario between Hamilton and the City of Toronto. Oakville is an attractive option in the GTA, it is about 30 minutes away from Toronto, is included on all major public transit routes, and is a stunning community in its own right. For those who need to be close to Toronto, but aren’t interested in big-city living, Oakville is certainly worth considering.
Real Estate in Oakville
Oakville is popular, there is no doubt about it. As the GTA has expanded outward - especially if you count the Greater Toronto and Hamilton Area - communities as close to Toronto as Oakville are incredibly desirable. There’s more to the popularity than convenience, though; Oakville sports a scenic waterfront, historic downtown, plenty of green spaces, and an active community, making it especially popular amongst families.
Just as its population has been rapidly rising, so has Oakville’s Real estate numbers. On paper, Oakville is considered an expensive place to live, with an average property price just over the $800,000 mark. This number is driven up by the extremely high prices of detached homes in Oakville, most of which are in the millions. Condos and townhomes are actually a lot more affordable than average would suggest, their numbers in the mid to high $500,000 range for a new, modern condo. Fortunately, Oakville continues to grow and there are many opportunities to get in at the first stages of a new building project.
