Condominium Developments: Fascinating facts!

A townhouse complex called Brentwood Village in Edmonton, Alberta was the first condominium development in Canada (registered in 1967); the first high-rise condominium development was Horizon House built by Minto in Nepean, Ontario (also registered in 1967).

Forty five years later, here are some quick facts:

  • Over one million people live in condominiums in Ontario
  • There are about 525,000 condominium units in Ontario
  • Toronto had the fastest growing high-rise condo market in North America in 2011
  • About 50% of new home sales in Ontario are condos...and condos make up 60% of homes sold in the GTA

Prestigious Markham

Since the early 1970s, Markham has been the new home and condominium mid- and high-rise apartment choice for trusted and respected developers and builders. Pride of work- and craftsmanship are seen in the gracious, gated Tridel condo complex located at Austin and Bullock Drives with its sought-after units in the beautifully landscaped and full amenities Walden Pond and Hunt Club buildings, nestled on natural parkland but close to Centennial civic centre, shopping, and transportation. Soon, more attractive growth was taking place with the development of the lovely Hampton Green condo apartment complex at 2 Raymerville. These condo apartments continue to be prestigious addresses, often with wait-lists to purchase or lease.

Markham LEED-ing the Way in Green-Building Excellence

Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a third-party certification program and internationally accepted benchmark of excellence. In Markham, we're proud that developers who are LEED certified, like Remington Group, are active participants in recognizing and celebrating high-standard, green-building.

Why Engage Jane Cotterill Real Estate Team to Buy A New Construction from A Builder?

While some of the condominium apartments available today are resale properties, the market is increasingly dominated by new home - often yet-to-be built - offerings. The question for many becomes "Why should I engage my own real estate representative? Why not just buy from the builder, or from their agent?"

At Jane Cotterill Homes, we work and live in Markham, and have 30 years of real estate experience in serving the best interests of the individuals who are making one of the biggest investment transactions of their lives when buying or selling their homes. As real estate sales representatives, we represent YOU, not the builder. As members in good standing of TREB (the Toronto Real Estate Board), OREA (Ontario Real Estate Association), and CREA (Canadian Real Estate Association), we are extensively trained in and committed to ensuring your best interests are met and protected. We offer you in-depth market knowledge and experience and the expertise of evaluation, comparison, and negotiation, together with a top-notch network of appraisal, inspection, lending and legal advisers and providers.

If you're thinking of buying or selling a condominium, you owe it to yourself to give us a call at 905-471-2000 or email us at info@janecotterillhomes.com for a confidential, no-obligation conversation with either Jane Cotterill or Lindsey Lumsden. You'll be glad you did.
