10 Reasons Not to Live in Toronto

If you live in Toronto, you may think your city is the Centre of the Universe. Hogtown, as it’s affectionately called is home to millions and truly is a great Canadian city. Yet, with the massive increase in home and condo prices in the city, many people are simply priced out of the market. With home values over $1 million purchase price and condos approaching $500,000, many would-be first-time home-buyers have to resort to outrageous debt or scrimping lifestyles just to own a home. Appleby Gardens Luxury Residences in Burlington, Ontario want to give you 10 reasons why not to live in Toronto, on top of the exorbitant cost of living. Higher Debt-Load Of course if you want a 25 year mortgage with a big bank, maxed out credit lines and loans from friends and family in order to get your down payment, Toronto may be a great option. Terrible Congestion If you never want to actually drive anywhere again, move to T-dot! It’s not called the Don Valley Parking Lot colloquially for nothing. With constant pressure to do something with the ghastly Gardiner Expressway, there may be even worst congestion to come. Outrageous Cost of Living Forget the cost of home ownership, what about the absolutely insane prices for actually going to almost any large sporting event in Toronto, from the Maple Leafs to a concert at the ACC. The only exception may be an FCC or a Blue Jays game if those are your sports. Poorer Air Quality Although Canada overall has great air quality, Toronto is in the top 15 cities for worst air quality in the country. With congestion on the rise in the city and no real large-scale transportation solutions on the horizon, it is bound to get worst. Higher Crime Canadians like to think of their country as safe, especially in comparison to other western nations, especially our southern neighbour. While this is true, Toronto’s violent crime and homicide rate is still higher than most moderate sized cities in the country with a few exceptions. Burlington has a much lower homicide and crime rate than that of Toronto. Harder to Raise a Family...
