Looking to move away from the GTA? Set your sights on the Niagara Region!

The Niagara Region is home to many award-winning wineries, incredible views, lush landscapes, and an endless array of must-see attractions, entertainment, world-class education, and global cuisines. It’s truly a community you can call home and the perfect housing destination for those looking to retire or even get away from the hustle and bustle of city life.

Here our top 3 reasons why now is the time to plant your roots in Niagara and make it your new forever home:

Reason 1: The Location

Silvergate Homes | Niagara Top Home BuilderOne of the best features of Niagara is its convenient location. Being centrally located between Toronto and the U.S.A. border means you can plan day trips, or commute daily all while living in the peaceful and beautiful Niagara Region.  As of January 2019, Metrolinx introduced a daily GO Transit train trip to and from Niagara Falls! This allows for Niagara commuters to conveniently access major GO routes and stops in all cities around the golden horseshoe.

Whether train riders need the service to go to work, see a show or attend a doctor’s appointment, the addition of the GO Train service to Niagara Falls has been a long time coming. Connecting Niagara to the rest of Ontario just became easier. As a bonus, we offer several communities located within a short drive to the Niagara Falls GO station!

Reason 2: Retirement (on the green)

Did you know that in the Niagara Region you can retire or downsize from the city but upsize in a rural area in a home that is bigger than your Toronto condo, is maintenance free and that is significantly more affordable than GTA living?

Greater Toronto Area residents are setting their sights on the Niagara Region for retirement options. Surrounded by local amenities such as wineries, theatres and championship golf courses, Niagara is primed for retirees.
