Appleby Gardens Condominiums – The Benefits of a Condo Lifestyle

Whether you’re making the move into home ownership for the first time or are downsizing for convenience purposes, Appleby Gardens Condominiums offer the perfect condominium lifestyle. 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. Save Money 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...

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...
