The homes in the area were fairly evenly split last year with 27% of sales being for detached homes, 26% for condos, and 22% for townhomes. This is indicative of the diverse population in the region. The average price for a home during that time here was $481,441, which was a 15% increase over the previous year. This breaks down to the average freehold price being $651,460, and an average condo price of $337,579. Developers are taking advantage of this varied landscape, and they are looking to continue bringing condos and townhomes to the area.
