WATERDOWN, ON REAL ESTATE
Waterdown is a fast growing community of approximately 30,000 people+. However, with a building boom going on, the population is set to double in the next 5 years. Waterdown is really a tale of two cities. There is old Waterdown, which still maintains a certain charm and the area contains all the older house, quiet streets and big trees. New Waterdown consists of new subdivisions with houses and townhouses as well as new malls for shopping including a Canadian Tire and a local Walmart. I have worked in Waterdown real estate buying and selling homes for the past 15 years.
The town is easily accessible from Hwy 6, Hwy 5 and the QEW and is popular with commuter families. There is every manner of shopping and restaurants here including the Keg, Boston Pizza, Lord Byron, Watermark and Turtle Jacks. The main high school for the area is in Waterdown, along with several other schools including private Montessori, Daycare, Elementary School and French Immersion.
Because of the towns proximity to Burlington, real estate prices have been rising and catching up to Burlington. There are many choices of homes including luxury homes, condos, townhouse, semi-detached homes and older homes and bungalows. Prices for homes can range from $600,000 to $2.5 million and townhouses can range from $500,000 to $800,000. The town is also divided into East Waterdown, which is the old area, with older homes on larger lots in quiet streets and West Waterdown, which is closer to Hwy 6 and is the area that is expanding with subdivisions of homes and townhomes on small lots. The exception is the older area south of Dundas St. up to the escarpment. That area has been redeveloping the past few years as older homes are knocked down to build larger homes.
