Is it time to leave the city? The Toronto housing market is a tough one. Even for homebuyers with equity and savings to throw around, there’s always a battle. Landing that perfect dream home at a reasonable price is a tall order.
There’s a strong case for leaving the city altogether. It’s easier to find what you’re looking for when you start looking at custom new homes where there’s room to build.

Money aside, there are plenty of great lifestyle reasons to get out of the city and leave the traffic and noise behind you.
Where should you look when you’re ready to get out of the city? There are a lot of good reasons to start looking in Niagara.

Life in Niagara on the Lake
Niagara on the Lake is a small town of 17,500 people on the southern shores of Lake Ontario. Just north of Niagara Falls and east of St. Catharines, it lies in the heart of Ontario wine country. Rich soil and a climate tempered by the presence of the lake have made this region ideal for the dozens of vineyards located in NOTL’s borders, not to mention many more throughout the peninsula.
The Niagara Region is a lot more affordable than Toronto, so you’ll discover you’re not the only one making the move from the city. Only a few minutes drive away, St. Catharines is buzzing with new businesses and great restaurants opened up by young entrepreneurs priced out of the big city.
Niagara on the Lake is also only a short drive away from Hamilton or the GTA. Whether you need to head back into the city to visit the office, meet with clients, or have dinner with family, NOTL is easily accessible.
But what makes Niagara on the Lake the ideal place to move into an active adult community is the slower pace. When you move out to the countryside, you can put the traffic behind you and start enjoying yourself. With neighbours who also enjoy a more relaxed lifestyle, you’ll find a peaceful community.
If it’s time to leave the over-priced, competitive GTA real estate market, don’t overlook Niagara Region on your new home hunt.
