East York housing in high demand, expert says
Potential buyers attracted by 'good vibes,' reasonable prices
The East York community is booming, and so is its housing market.
According to Toronto-based real estate agent Suzanne Lewis, the neighbourhood has developed substantially over the past 10 years. From restaurants to boutiques, this has brought a different vibe to the area, she says.
While people may start out looking for homes in Riverdale or Leslieville, they quickly come to the realization that the lack of inventory and subsequent price hikes put those homes out of their price range, Lewis points out. That’s when clients turn to East York, where they can still get that feeling of community without necessarily paying exorbitant prices.
