Milton is a medium-sized town in the Greater Toronto Area, that offers its residents a perfect balance between the hustle-bustle of daily life and the peace and tranquility of nature.
Located to the west of Mississauga and less than an hour away from downtown Toronto, Milton is one of the fastest growing municipalities in Ontario. The small-town life and proximity to other major municipalities make it a popular option for many. Although it has grown considerably in recent years, it still retains some of the small-town feel, with the western end of Main Street maintaining its historic character and acting as a focal point for celebrations and festivals in the town. That old charm is mixed with modern, forward-thinking development that has helped the town to attract many new residents recently.
A big attraction for many looking for homes in Milton is the cost of real estate, which is lower than municipalities farther east. That means there can be good deals found for single family homes, which have proven to be a popular choice for byers recently. With the growth of the town, there are more high-rise developments and new condos in Milton. These offer another option that is lower in price but has great investment potential with plans for a future Wilfrid Laurier University campus in the town as well as a campus for Conestoga College.
Obviously, one of the main features of the town is the number of options for commuters. Milton GO station sits in the centre of the town and offers regular train services to downtown Toronto via Mississauga, with journeys taking around one hour. For drivers, Highways 401 and 407 are both nearby and provide ways to get elsewhere in the GTA relatively quickly. That access to the GTA combined with the quality of life, makes Milton a great place to buy a home.
