Richmond Hill is in many ways a crossroads for the GTA. To it’s east, the Highway 404, leads directly into the core of Toronto via the Don Valley Parkway, and makes commutes simple. Travelling throughout the boroughs and neighbourhoods of the city is easy too – Highway 401, one of the busiest highways in North America, travels east-west and just south of Richmond Hill, connecting the York Region to Scarborough, Etobicoke, Mississauga, and the rest of Southern Ontario.
As Richmond Hill grows, and traffic becomes more dense, residents of Richmond Hill have many other options for their commutes. York Region Transit (YRT) runs an unparalleled bus service throughout the entire northern region of the GTA, providing simple connections to Vaughan, Aurora, Markham, Newmarket, and Whitchurch-Stouffville, with simple connections to the TTC line. Though the TTC itself does not operate within Richmond Hill, plans are being prepared to extend the primary subway lines to the intersection of Yonge and Highway 7, at the area’s southern border.
Commuters can also rely on GO Transit. The primary commuter rail has two stations within the city – Richmond Hill Station and Langstaff Station, both providing regular trains in and out of the city.
Laurier Homes has been building homes in Southern Ontario for over four decades. With strong corporate principles and a focus on researching the needs of customers, Laurier has managed to build a reputation for solid, functional homes.
This reputation is in large part thanks to it’s quality assurance program. Since Laurier treats every home it builds as if they themselves were moving in, the attention to detail and the pledge of quality is above the competition. Every single home is built to exacting standards and it shows in the work – satisfied homeowners!
Buyers can get hands-on too, thanks to Laurier’s Home Decor Centre. Here, buyers can have a hand in the design of the home before it’s even built – change tiles or flooring, alter window designs, or enhance finishings throughout bathrooms, kitchens and elsewhere in the house. And all along the way, Laurier ensures their customers are properly informed about their options, so they can make the decision that’s right for them.
In addition to their stellar reputation with customers, Laurier Homes is known for giving back. Recently they were part of landmark project to provide affordable homes for homeless people in the GTA.
With all this, plus a commitment to energy-efficiency and affordability in their developments, and it’s easy to see why Laurier Homes is one of Southern Ontario’s most well-respected developers.
Just a few years ago, Richmond Hill was known as Toronto’s fastest growing housing market. Dramatic growth has occurred over the past 30 years, with the city’s population has gone from 57,000 to 231,000.
While demand has never diminished, development in the city has focused on more dense homes like condos and apartments. Dozens of new condominium projects have sprouted along Yonge Street, reclaiming tired plazas and unused land, and bringing life and excitement to the core of the city. Many of these developments are up to 15 storeys, but some reach nearly 40.
Average rental rates are around $2K, and the demand for condos is high – as vacancy rate sits very low, around 0.8%. The average price of a pre-construction condo sits in the mid $300K range, but prices continue to grow year-to-year. This is excellent news for families looking to invest in a new home or condo, as property values are only expected to increase in the next few years.
