Bradford Real Estate – Diversified Commuter Town Becoming a GTA Home Buying Destination
Bradford is a beautiful community full of history, culture and great people. Our region is anchored by a strong diversified economy. Over the last few years we’ve seen excellent growth.
A large part of this growth is due to Bradford’s hybrid of small town life with the convenience of a 35 minute drive to Toronto via our close proximity to the 400.
Nature and agriculture are important elements to Bradford living. Our community lies on the banks of the breathtaking Holland River. Our soil is known throughout the province as being some of the most fertile in the province. Our farmers benefit from excellent growth of carrots, onions, celery and many other crops. Once a year Bradford’s streets are taken over for the world famous Carrot Fest, the greatest carrot festival on the planet.
In addition to being connected to the 400 highway, commuters can access GO service connecting them to Union Station for the daily trip to work downtown and throughout Toronto.
The ability to easily access the city makes Bradford a very desirable Commuter Town. The Bradford real estate market is booming. Buyers from Toronto are attracted to affordable home prices in addition to small town life, along with the far more affordable house prices compared to other real estate markets nearby such as Newmarket. We’re also seeing many buyers from neighbouring regions such as Simcoe and York attracted Bradford due to its close proximity and housing values.
There are more than 3,000 businesses located in the Bradford region, many of which are independently owned and operated. This creates a truly unique shopping experience for those new to the area.
We know how special the Bradford region is and now others throughout the GTA are discovering what Bradford Real Estate has to offer. This is an excellent time to be seller in the Bradford real estate market and it appears this exciting trend will continue.

KESWICK REAL ESTATE READY TO BOOM WITH HIGHWAY 404 EXTENSION
It’s taken some time, but the Highway 404 extension from Newmarket to Keswick is now open to drivers. The extension has made life easier for thousands of daily drivers who make the commute to Toronto from the townships of Georgina and East Gwillimbury.
This has been a project that has been on the table for decades and it’s seen some delays along the way. Traffic has been active on the new roadway for a few months; many are asking what does the highway extension mean for the Keswick Real Estate market?
We already know that many are privileged to call this beautiful and historic piece of Ontario home. We’ve seen a steady increase Keswick Real Estate values over the years.
This 13 kilometre extension will only help in increasing the ease of the commute to Toronto and parts further south of Keswick. Many people living in Toronto or just north of the city will now look at the
Keswick real estate with the increased ease of commuting. Keswick is also a great place for those looking for small town charm with the convenience of an easy journey to Toronto.
With many vehicles using the highway and taken off local roads daily, you can expect quieter neighbourhoods with much less traffic and ultimately making Keswick safer and more desirable for families.
It’s being suggested that York Region will see a large increase in population within the next 15-to-20 years. This is being triggered by the highway expansion. Those who currently own housing or vacant land could see significant increases in value in the coming years.
We’ve seen populations and real estate values shoot up in other commuter towns in years past after major roadwork has been completed which is probable for Keswick Real Estate as well.
The increase in population should help the local economy in Keswick with sustained growth. Local business owners will benefit from the connection to more commercial and industrial opportunities. Growth in the local economy will lead to more jobs and therefore will play a major factor in the possibility of Keswick Real Estate prices increasing.
