Because the 2500 square kilometre area of the Durham Region has such a rich and diverse landscape, there are many different property types for sale available here.

In communities like Brooklin and Courtice, there are many country homes for sale, and residential homes with plenty of space. Most of the cities, like Oshawa, Pickering, and Clarington, are situated beautifully along the shore of Lake Ontario. Waterfront homes for sale here offer the unique opportunity to live a beach lifestyle.

Many people choose to live in the Durham Region as a more affordable alternative than living in Toronto. There’s more space in these communities, it’s easily commutable, and home prices are typically lower here. This has made it a popular choice for all types of households, single people, couples, and families of all sizes.

One of the most popular property types in the Durham Region are condos and townhouses. There are many beautifully built condos for sale in Oshawa, Pickering, Courtice, Clarington, and more. These brick built condos offer an affordable and comfortable living, with different layouts that offer several floors, amenities, number of bedrooms, and many other features.

Here are a few of the benefits of condo living in the Durham Region.

It’s more affordable than buying a single family detached home.

Home buyers considering purchasing a condo or townhouse have the flexibility to choose the layout and location that suits them best, but also saving money opens new doors as well.

A three bedroom single family home can sometimes come with a high price tag, more than some are willing to spend. When that’s the case, condos and townhouses are a great option.

Two and three bedroom condos for sale can often be listed for less than half a million dollars. That’s enough room for a small family, with the savings many hope for. There’s also fantastic condos and townhouses for sale with only a handful of neighbours, over 2000 square feet of space, and multiple bedrooms, all for less than a million dollars. There’s also luxury condos and townhouses for sale that are sold for more than a million dollars.

Whatever type of condo you choose to buy, it’s likely you’re getting more bang for your buck than a single family detached home.

For the amenities and communal spirit

Many condos and townhouses for sale here have amazing features and amenities that could be drastically outside of your budget if you were buying a detached home.

Some of the condos in the Durham Region have brand new appliances found throughout the home. Stainless steel appliances, new flooring, new paint, and more are a few of the included amenities in many of the condos.

As for amenities, each condo building and townhouse property will be different. Many have pools, courtyards, barbecue grills, rooftop balconies, and other spaces for enjoying the weather, the scenery, and family time. Maybe you’ll even make some friends with the neighbours and enjoy these spaces together from time to time.

For the safety and security

Stress free living is common in condo living, and that’s not just because of the included amenities and savings on costs. The safety and security of your family is the most important part of any household and neighborhood, and condos often have that covered.

Security cameras are typical in most of the condo buildings and a large benefit to living in them. Of course, houses can have installed cameras, but it’s included in condo life. There’s also the value add of having a gated property, with 24 hour surveillance, concierge services, and sometimes even in-person security.

Key access and fob access are required in most units, which means local neighbours are the only other people you’ll see on a day-to-day basis.

In the Durham Region, there are condos in most neighbourhoods

Condos and townhouse living is an incredibly popular lifestyle in the Durham Region.

There are condos in the downtown core of cities like Oshawa and Clarington, but there are also residential townhouses found on quiet streets in communities like Courtice and Pickering. Many areas only have condos for sale downtown, but here the lifestyle is available anywhere you’d prefer to live.

Condos also present the opportunity to own property on prime real estate that would otherwise be financially impossible to consider. Many condos sold are located on Lake Ontario, providing picturesque views, fresh air, and an easy walk to the sandy beaches.

For the investment opportunity

Like owning a house, affordable condo living is still owning your home without the need to pay a landlord every month. Your equity is still being built, as is your asset portfolio. In the current real estate market, there is a condo boom in Southern Ontario. Owning a condo unit or townhome is more popular than ever, and many more are built.

Owning a condo, especially in a desirable area, could definitely pay dividends in the future.
