Moneysense Magazine Picks Brantford as the Best City in Canada to Buy Real Estate
Posted on 04/26
The Greater Toronto Area’s best kept secret is now out! Brantford was recently selected by MoneySense financial website as the number one city to buy real estate in Canada. With home prices way out of reach throughout the GTA, Brantford offers one of the last opportunities to buy a detached home at just over $500,000. While prices remain low enough for many to qualify for a mortgage, home values have continued to rise steadily at 8.5% since 2017 making this a fantastic opportunity to build equity or purchase an investment property.
But the appeal doesn’t end with just home prices. Brantford is one of the best places to raise a family in a small-town setting with all the perks and conveniences a city has to offer. If sport is your thing, Brantford is the Tournament Capital of Ontario and hosts many sporting events at the Sports Hall of Recognition and the Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre.
The addition of Wilfred Laurier Campus and Conestoga College have helped to revitalize the downtown core. Harmony Square anchors a bustling downtown filled with local businesses and many events throughout the year and the Brantford International Jazz Festival attracts over 20,000 visitors a year. The Sanderson Centre for the Performing Arts hosts an impressive slate of musical performers in a beautiful art deco building.
Brantford has rebounded by diversifying its manufacturing economy and now enjoys one of the lowest unemployment rates in the country. Nutella and Tic Tac maker, Ferrero Rocher, has become one of the largest employers in the town, so much so that there is a now a World Nutella® Day in Brantford every February featuring a family friendly opportunity to make Nutella® S’mores over a campfire and many more activities.
