If you’ve ever visited or lived in Caledon, you would have noticed houses with pools, which isn’t common in homes across the Greater Toronto Area. And that’s what I am going to talk about. Nestled right next to Brampton, Caledon is all about affordable luxury. As a first-time home buyer real estate agent in Brampton, I can tell you that many people miss out on Caledon. Whether you’re a first-time home buyer or an investor, here’s why you should buy a house in Caledon in 2022.
5 reasons you should purchase a house in Caledon:
1. Charming oasis for nature lovers
If you’re worried about making the move from a big city to Caledon, don’t be. You are going to fall in love with Caledon’s expansive farms, trails, and nature parks. During summers, you and your family will enjoy visiting The Great Trail, Caledon Trailway, and Bruce Trail.
2. Family-friendly neighbourhoods
Caledon is made up of 18 villages. I recommend these 9 villages to purchase real estate – Bolton, Caledon East, Belfountain, Cheltenham, Alton, Palgrave, Inglewood, Caledon Village, and Terra Cotta. They are affordable, family-friendly, and well-connected to Peel region and GTA. Locals in Caledon are family-oriented and inclusive. Expect to spend your summers visiting barbeque parties in your neighbourhood.
3. Great transportation facilities
One of the biggest advantages of living in Caledon is the convenience of easy transit. Since it’s located right next to Brampton, you will enjoy easy access to HWYs 400, 407, 427, 410, 403 and 401. If you don’t have a car, you can still travel to work in Brampton or Toronto using Go Transit. Vaughan, which has TTC access, is easy to reach via Go Transit. If you travel regularly, the Pearson International Airport is only a few minutes from Caledon.
4. Excellent public and private schools
Caledon has two school boards including Dufferin-Peel Catholic District School Board and Peel District School Board, both of which are excellent and also have exclusive programs for dedicated student-athletes. There are 4 secondary and several elementary schools in Caledon. If you’re an investor, this is crucial for you. Several families from across the globe are migrating to Canada for permanent residency. They will be looking for neighbourhoods that are affordable and have good schools for their kids.
5. One of the safest places to live in Canada
Caledon’s crime rate is 47% lower than the provincial average making it a safe, secure, and peaceful city to live or invest in. Taxes in Caledon are higher compared to other cities in GTA but it ensures that the community is well-maintained and free from crime. The city’s developing quickly and creating more areas of entertainment and employment for its residents.
