If you work in Toronto and are unable to find any homes that fit your budget, we want to introduce you to Clarington, Ontario where you can find homes starting at $499,900 listed for sale on the MLS system. Before we get to the listings, let's first talk about the area!

Although Clarington is a city in Ontario, it actually consists of 4 urban areas (and 14 hamlets) that are worth considering when looking to purchase a home. These are Courtice, Bowmanville, Newcastle, and Orono.

If you want the quickest commute to downtown Toronto, we suggest you focus on Courtice as the GO Train service currently allows you to get to downtown Toronto in only 1 hour and 20 minutes. This means that you can buy an affordable property that suits your family without having to compromise on long commute times to work!

From Courtice, it’s a 15 minute car ride to Durham College GO, and then a short train ride down to Union Station.

Clarington: Easy Commutes, Rich Culture

The good news is that GO Transit has begun work to extend the Lakeshore East commuter train line to Bowmanville which includes a train station in Courtice, and this will further reduce commute times from Courtice and allow Bowmanville residents to enjoy the speed and ease of travelling by GO train to Toronto!

Clarington: Safe, Affordable, and Family-Friendly

Based on the developments to transportation infrastructure in Clarington, it’s easy to see that convenience and accessibility is a big focus for the region. For practical purposes, Courtice and Bowmanville will have quick connectivity to Toronto for those who work in the city.

Clarington is a part of Durham Region in Ontario. The region offers prospective homebuyers a perfect blend of suburban tranquility and urban convenience. With its affordable housing options compared to Toronto, residents enjoy spacious homes and larger properties. The region boasts excellent schools, diverse recreational facilities, and vibrant community events, making it an ideal place for families.

Durham Region’s growing economy and friendly neighborhoods create a welcoming environment, making it a desirable location for homebuyers seeking a balanced and fulfilling lifestyle.

Regardless of whether you decide to look in Courtice or Bowmanville, all of Clarington will provide the same small town lifestyle that will provide a sense of community, safety, and green space. Unlike Toronto where everything is congested around the clock and most properties mean you have to sacrifice on space, Clarington is a great option for a growing family who needs space to enjoy a lifestyle outdoors.

Most buyers and first time home buyers will tend to look at properties in Bowmanville and Courtice since both communities are larger and offer more amenities, so we will focus on these two areas here in this article.

Courtice is located right next to Oshawa, and offers a blend of metropolitan convenience, serene lakefronts, and picturesque countryside. The community is know for large multi-million dollar homes on some of the largest lots in Durham Region. In fact, you will find many custom-built homes that rival some of the best in the province.

It’s also a great place to purchase some of the most desirable vacant land if your goal is to build a home in your dream setting. The community as a whole is safe with plenty of space for your kids to play, and neighbourhoods are beautiful and surrounded by nature.

In Bowmanville, you’ll have plenty of access to Lake Ontario if that’s your passion. Although rural properties and farms are a common sight, you’re a quick drive down to Port Darlington where you can walk the waterfront beach and enjoy nature by the water. Downtown Bowmanville is the heart of the community, and you’ll find all the shopping, eateries, and public transportation that will serve your lifestyle.

Verified Reviews of The Best Real Estate Team

Me and my wife Harshita comes with a background and strong belief of having the blessings of elders is ultra-important. Our signing the contract was purely because of Team Leader Gyanesh Paliwal. We really liked his knowledge, experience and as an elder and like a family member. Given this was our first Home experience and we were super anxious, on the closing day when we both were missing our parents the most to hear that voice go for it, you played that role. It was your voice in the end saying go for it gave me the courage to say yes. We hope that this would turn out to be one of our best decisions. In future we would love to work with you from the start till the end.

It’s been an absolute pleasure working with Akanksha and Gyanesh Paliwal of RE/MAX Team Paliwal. What started as a relationship with our real estate broker quickly evolved into a personal connection. The team has a deep understanding of the housing market but what stood out was always their attention to our unique needs. Gyanesh and Akanksha took out time to educate us as first time home buyer about the process of searching and purchasing a home before diving into the real home hunt. Akanksha’s approach to shift through the inventory and filter it down to our needs was very methodical which made it easier for us to make the final decision.

I wanna share my experience with Re/Max, Gyanesh Paliwal and his team, when the idea of buying house came up in our minds, we called Remax team Paliwal they explained everything in details, and kept following up with us till we made the decision to buy the house, then we met Gyanesh Paliwal, and they did everything to make us understand all the details of buying house as that was our first time, then the journey of viewing houses started, we visited tens of them in different places, they gave us opinion about each house, if any of them is in bad location or has something bad, they right away told us about it, then we came to the point that we found the house that we loved.

- Mohamed Elghazaly, October 2023
I was thinking of making an investment in GTA market. RE/MAX Agent Gyanesh Paliwal’s name was strongly recommended by my family. Gyanesh suggested me a few hand-picked great projects. He provided me full analysis of the project from a top builder. His support to make the right decision is great and he also coordinated and communicated with the builder on my behalf to complete the whole buying process.
