Now is the perfect time to start looking at homes in Oakville. More and more people are flocking to the region as Toronto continues to expand. People are looking for an easily-accessible place to live that’s just outside of the downtown core, yet still a destination unto itself.
In 2016, the census found that Oakville’s population was 193,832 residents, and expected that the community would increase in size, likely to about 250K by 2031. This kind of growth actually surpasses Toronto with over a 6% increase. This means more and more development is inbound for the charming city, from condos, to master-planned communities and it means return on investment opportunity is huge.
The focus will continue to be on improving sustainability, and increasing density, meaning that projects will be built to last, and will therefore increase property values more quickly and efficiently than some other projects. The current price of pre-construction condos sits within the $400K range, which is relatively affordable, but also is expected to rise as Oakville continues to density.
With so many reasons to live in Oakville, it’s easy to see why the town is in such high demand, and as this population influx continues to play out, investors would be wise to get in on the action before it’s too late!
