Why buy a townhouse in Whitby? Are they worth it?Year after year we have seen the best appreciations in the townhouse market for Whitby. Townhouses are a perfect fit for young families and first time buyers entering the market. In 2003 - 2004 the average price range for a new townhouse was between $180000 - $190000. Today the same townhouse is priced between $230000 - $240000. Not bad for just a few years appreciation. But are they worth it ~ I think so ~ for $240000 youíre able to find a newer 3 bedroom townhouse in a great area ~ you may even find one with a finished basement. You really canít match that in any community within the GTA. You can spend at least $100000 more and have the same commute to Toronto. Why not spend less and get more.
Not all townhouses in Whitby are equal and this may affect your resale potential. Take notice of the Age, condition, quality of the builder. Most buyers today want a powder room on the main floor along with an ensuite bathroom. Always stay away from the unusual or abnormal layouts. Paint with neutral colors. A bonus would be a layout with garage access to the back yard (ideal for taking the lawn mower from front to back ~ instead of owning 2)
Today there are 25 townhouses priced between $220000 - $250000 currently on the market. Email me for a complete list of properties and features.
