Condos are buzzing right now and Burlington is a fantastic location that brings you close to the big city of Toronto while allowing you to live in a quieter and more serene setting.
Forget the Yard Work
You won’t have to bring along any type of yard tools when you live in a condo. When it snows in the winter any shoveling of the paths, the driveway and the parking lot will all be handled for you. During the warmer months you won’t have to mow the lawn, trim the hedges, add any fertilizer or clear any gutters. More time equals more freedom and that’s exactly what you’ll get when you live in a condo.
When you own your own home you always have to have some extra money put away for the what-if scenarios. What if your roof starts to leak? What if the furnace breaks down? What if the basement gets flooded? You can put all these questions aside when you live in a condo because all of the major repairs are going to be handled.
It’s the law that a portion of your condo fees will be into a special reserve fund that is used for major repairs and renovations. All you have to do is pay your condo fees monthly. This is a set-and-forget type of situation where you’ll be in greater control of your money because you’ll know exactly what your monthly budget will be. You won’t have to worry, since it will be built into your monthly fees.
Feel Safer When You Live in a Condo
Condos provide better security features so that you can go to bed at night feeling safe. It’s difficult for strangers to enter a condo building with secured entry, and more neighbours means there is more of a neighbourhood watch over the building. The level of security is higher in this type of environment because of the security feature put in place, such as cameras and secured entry.
Appleby Gardens Condominiums offer these benefits and so much more. The building features a concierge lobby, a party room, underground parking and a fitness center. It’s located in the beautiful city of Burlington, which was named Canada’s 4th best city to live in by MoneySense Magazine. Contact us to find new condominiums for sale in Burlington today! Call 1-877-885-0284 to find out why the Appleby Gardens condominium lifestyle may be perfect for you in this amazing city.
Today’s technology is changing the way we live at home. There are many families plugged in online: watching television programming, using skype to call family and friends or handling their bills. With these new high tech lifestyles and growing mechanical developments, architects and condo developers are making technology a foundation in their building strategies.
Purchasing is always a big decision for anyone. You can expect to have long discussions about modern amenities and financing to take place. Sometimes people move from one location to another very distant location. To make it easier on new buyers, Ontario’s Electronic Commerce Act has made it possible to buy residences remotely. For example if you live in a house in Ottawa and are planning to buy a new condominium for sale in Burlington.
Your phone or tablet can now act as a key to your home. At some buildings residences can now book their elevators, party rooms, or guest rooms online. Your device can also control the heat, air conditioning, television and security systems within your suite. Anything you need can seemingly be accomplished from anywhere with these advanced technologies and apps. Some condo companies are even setting up free internet throughout the entire building that are included in your maintenance fees.
Underground parking lots are now being designed with electric cars in mind. There are a few companies looking to put charging stations within condominium parking lots. The changing infrastructure of homes and real estate business is a sign of the changing technological landscape.

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.
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.
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.
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
Of course living in large urban centres is becoming a norm in the world, but if you had a choice between the highly dense areas of Toronto or Burlington, ranked the 2nd best city in which to raise a family, the option is clear.
Farther from Nature
Do you like to ski, cycle through natural areas, canoe, kayak or generally spend time away from the busy city? Getting out of Toronto for a weekend in the summer can be like trying to escape prison; it requires planning and a lot of patience. Living in Burlington provides access to natural settings within 10 minutes with the Bronte Provincial Park.
Living in Toronto means you will have less time for virtually every other aspect in your life besides work. All the time spent travelling will ensure that you have less time for hobbies, family activities and more. At least if you only have to commute to Toronto for work, once you get home to Burlington, you could be at your children’s activities in minutes.
Live to Work
Instead of working to live, most Torontonians are career-obsessed as a matter of necessity. There is a difference between being passionate about your career and being forced into working a 100 hour work-week because of the big-city pressure to succeed. This pressure is two-fold from needing higher incomes to pay for the cost of living and a societal pressure to succeed. Toronto has higher average work hours per week than New York, Beijing, Los Angeles, Sydney, Dublin, Berlin, and London.
Bad Market Timing
Will this constant rise in home prices last forever? Most experts agree that Toronto is in a housing bubble and that it will self-correct at some point to some degree. Would you rather buy at the top of the price bubble or buy in a community such as Burlington that is seeing reasonable home price increases without the fear of a price bubble.
Consider Appleby Gardens Luxury Residence in Burlington as a real difference to big-city life. Burlington is one of the best cities to live, work and raise a family in Canada.

Buying your first home can be an incredibly exciting time, but can become overwhelming. One major decision is the type of home to purchase. There are a number of options available, and determining which one is right for your lifestyle can be tricky. For many first time buyers, opting to buy a condo over a house can be the best way to go, as it offers many of the same perks as owning a house, with fewer drawbacks and financial risks.
Condos Often Have Better Value
When looking at your first home, you may not be overly interested in the size of the surrounding property itself, preferring to focus on the number of rooms and size of the living space. In many cases, condos will offer you more for less, when compared to a house, in terms of the number of rooms and the size of the living space. In addition, condos often offer amenities that would be out of reach for the average first time home buyer in terms of cost. Access to special features like a pool, tennis court, and exercise room are often all included in your condo fees, helping to make your investment into your first home stretch even further.
Condo owners don’t need to worry about cutting the lawn, weeding the garden, or taking care of the exterior of the property. For many first time buyers this is an incredibly big perk of condo ownership. This frees up more of your time to focus on things that are important in your life, or just to relax after a hard day’s work, without the need to worry about landscaping or raking up the leaves in the fall. For a person with a busy life and packed schedule, condo ownership can offer the perks of owning a home without any of the time-sucking drawbacks.
Condos are often located in areas that are prime locations; areas where purchasing a home could be significantly more expensive or less practical. Appleby Gardens Condominium, for example, offer easy access to shopping and culture without the need to hop in the car and drive down from the suburbs. It can also work out to be cheaper in the long run, saving yourself the cost of gas, parking, and wear and tear on your vehicle each time you want go shopping, meet your friends, or head out for dinner. Young professionals in particular can get a lot of value out of owning a condo located in these areas, as they can easily get to and from work, and can head out for a night on the town without needing to plan their ride or transportation far in advance.
Condos Are A Good Investment
Condos are a great investment into your future, the same way a house is. You can build equity in your condo, just as you would a house, and you can buy knowing that the market for a good condo is only improving. In addition to being able to sell when the time comes, you can also consider subletting or renting the condo out.
