Over the years, I seem to get a lot of calls from clients outside the city (province/country) that will ask me a myriad of questions about any particular Toronto Neighborhood. Questions about where it is located, who lives there, what type of housing is available, is it safe, close to good schools, serviced by transit, prices, etc etc.
In an attempt to answer some of these questions, I have set up a link to Toronto Neighborhoods on my main page of my website (http://www.jarrett.ca/) Some of our best neighborhoods are listed below in no particular order and if your neighborhood is not included it may be doe to an oversight on my part or it may be that I just wouldn't include it in my "best" Toronto neighborhood list. I will start in Toronto proper which we call "Old Toronto" and which includes the neighborhoods of Cabbagetown, Harbourfront, Grange Park, Kensington, Little Italy, South Annex, St. Lawrence (home of the St. Lawrence Market for fresh veggies or antique hunting on the weekends) and Trinity Bellwoods.
Old Toronto to the east includes such great neighborhoods as Riverdale, Leslieville, Danforth VIllage and The Beaches. Typically, the Beaches will give you the most expensive offering of homes due to it's stones throw from the Lake. Riverdale, Danforth Village and Leslieville have some great prices and definitely a handyman special can be found - great opportunity's as these neighborhoods are what we call up and coming. Further east, in East York, you will find 2 very nice neighborhoods (established and somewhat more expensive due to the neighborly feel and sometimes larger yards) of Leaside and Thorncliffe Park.
Old Toronto West has such great neighborhoods as Earlscourt, High Park and Swansea. Home to many large older homes. A little further west is Etobicoke which includes the neighborhoods of The Queensway, The Kingsway, Sunnylea, New Toronto, Mimico, Long Branch and Humber Bay - great spots just seconds to the Lake.
Old Toronto Midtown is just north of the downtown core and includes the Annex, Casa Loma, Christie Pits, Seaton VIllage and the more upscale neighborhoods of Forest Hill (million dollar homes), Rosedale (million dollar homes), Moore Park, Summerhill and of course, our famous Yorkville where the stars hang out.I hope to eventually set up some neighborhood pages with market information for each area but until then you can always give me a call or email me at Jarrett@Jarrett.ca. Keep well.
