Local Vaughan agents know the area
Vaughan is a city with an impressive transportation system, a beautiful collection of prosperous neighbourhoods and employment opportunities galore. As the sixth richest city in Canada, it offers a little slice of heaven just above Toronto with a population of over 300,000. One of its major draws is its highly competitive commercial and industrial taxes which have helped bring more businesses to the area. This has opened many job opportunities in the manufacturing and industrial sectors. In fact, Vaughan has the highest jobs to housing ratio in the GTA. It currently has about 680 hectares of employment lands available and there are 10,000 existing businesses employing roughly 200,000 people.
Vaughan encompasses a series of charming hamlets including Kleinburg, Thornhill, Maple, and Woodbridge each with its own tourist-worthy attractions. If you are seeking refuge from the life of the big city, but still want all the culture, art, entertainment and amenities, the City of Vaughan is calling your name.
Vaughan Real Estate Market & History
Vaughan was originally populated by German Pennsylvanians and people of French and English descent. By 1840 the population had grown from a handful of people to 4,300 and in 1850 it was incorporated as a township. The new population was not just farmers, but also expert tradespeople. This contributed to the area’s growth. Several hamlets popped up in Vaughan including Thornhill and Kleinburg. As the area continued to prosper the end of World War II led to more immigration. In 1960, the population reached 15,957 with many Italians, Jews and Eastern Europeans choosing to call the area home. The town merged with Woodbridge to form the Town of Vaughan in 1971 and in 1991, it became a city. It continues to prosper today thanks to growth in the manufacturing and industrial sectors.
Vaughan is the 6th richest city in Canada. It has a large population of well-off young up and comers who make up the skilled workforce in the area. Adding to the youthful vibe, students attending nearby York University can also be found living in the area. This younger crowd attracts an excellent selection of restaurants, shopping, and spas, providing top notch experiences for those living the single lifestyle. However, this is a city rich with people of all ages, incomes and household sizes including plenty of families attracted to the safe streets, affordable housing options and schools.
Vaughan Real Estate
Vaughan offers an interesting prospect to home buyers as it consists of six communities each with its own “downtown” and unique neighbourhoods. It has seen a booming home development market in the past several years providing an interesting range of housing styles. There is really something for everyone here including historical houses, new builds, condos, and mid-century homes complete with seriously luxurious upgrades.
Woodbridge and Thornhill have both seen their fair share of condo development mostly low-rise complexes and town houses. Kleinburg is very prosperous with a selection of some of the largest homes in the city. Many offer several thousand square feet of living space with highly respectable yard sizes, multiple vehicle garages and perfectly landscaped yards and pool areas.
Maple is probably the most diverse area offering the full gamut of housing sizes, ages and styles including detached homes, semi-detached homes, townhomes, bungalows, and low-rise and high-rise condos. Many of the neighbourhoods boast mature trees and well-kept properties that show pride of ownership.
Concord is more industrial but has been seeing some housing developments pop up as well. The proximity of these developments to local businesses and employers improves their value. The average overall housing price in Vaughan is $1.1 million, with condos averaging $548k, townhomes at $837k and detached houses reaching $1.3 million.
