Oshawa Real Estate

The lakeside community of Oshawa sits on the northern side of Lake Ontario and is a thriving community of almost 150,000 residents. Located just 60 kilometers east of the center of Toronto, the town is one of the largest along the outer edge of the Greater Toronto Area. American company General Motors has a significant presence in town and the residents have often referred to Oshawa as the "Automotive Capital of Canada."

The area was once known as a major trading area for Indian and European residents who dealt in the fur trade and growth was seen in the region during the late 1700s. During the 1800s, the city was quite factory-oriented as businessmen filled the city with industrial buildings. Today, many residents work for General Motors, and the area isn't as nearly the dense industrial city that it was over a century ago.

Real estate opportunities in town run the gamut from cozy bungalows built a few decades ago to new construction of executive style homes with large, multiple garages, high ceilings, and many modern features. Homes built in the last century are often available for less than $300,000 while brand new homes with large floor plans often run close to or around $500,000.

Despite the cold winters in Ontario, Oshawa residents love to play outdoors and the community offers several ways to enjoy the beautiful summers near the lake. A relaxing day might include a trip to the Oshawa Valley Botanical Gardens where peaceful park benches and gorgeous flowers await a sunny afternoon with a picnic and a good book.

The influence of General Motors is also evident in the town's recreational opportunities with the Canadian Automotive Museum offering a fun look back into Canada's history with the automobile. Oshawa offers residents the benefits of a large town yet also provides opportunities for peaceful outings to the lakeshore, museums, and conservation areas located close to the water and on the eastern side of town.
