Shopping for new homes in Whitby? In this post, we’ll give you tips for making the best choice. We’ll also fill you in on why Paradise Developments has been the builder of choice for millions of people throughout the Greater Toronto Area since 1972.
What To Look For When Shopping For New Homes In Whitby
Given Whitby’s status as a large commuter suburb outside the Greater Toronto Area, real estate along key routes is highly sought-after. Our Whitby development is within close proximity to GO Transit as well as Highways 401 and 407. This prime location offers easy access to other cities in Durham Region and the Greater Toronto Area. Can’t get much better than that location-wise!
Elsewhere in the Greater Toronto Area (such as Mississauga), the price of even modest homes is skyrocketing. While Durham Region has shown solid growth, things aren’t quite as frothy here yet. That means you can find new homes for sale in Whitby starting from the $500,000s, whereas something similar in Toronto would cost many millions.
Should Whitby’s trend of development and economic growth continue, as it’s expected to, these properties may prove to be an even better deal than they appear right now.
New build homes in Whitby are generally considered to be a better bargain than older properties. Upsides include access to new roads and the ability to choose exactly what amenities you want. At Paradise Developments, our offerings include your choice of exterior colors on both townhomes and fully detached residences.
Plus, you’ll save quite a bit of money on maintenance and have the convenience of addressing any defects directly with the builder. New homes are built to current Ontario Building Code regulations, which are constantly updated to ensure safety and quality.
To add to the list of benefits, it’s often easier to secure financing for new homes rather than old ones. At Paradise Homes, we provide assistance with the financing process, whereas when buying an old home from its owner, you are left to deal with that yourself.
Downpayment requirements also tend to be less stringent when buying new build homes.
When shopping for new builds in Whitby, you want to be sure you deal with a reputable builder. Our new townhomes in Whitby are just one of many developments we’ve embarked on in the Greater Toronto Area since 1972.
In our nearly 50 years of doing business, we’ve built several thousand homes for millions of satisfied customers. This reputation is hard to beat when searching for your forever home.
