In fact, Burlington draws from various sectors that include transportation, business, electronics, environmental, and chemical.

Its close proximity to the Greater Toronto Area is another factor as it allows for the rapid development and shipping of goods to a large and nearby customer market.

Burlington has also had the convenience of being rated by several magazines and organizations in the top 10 Canadian cities when it comes to safety, job opportunities, and overall quality of life.

This makes it an incredibly well-rounded city that continues to attract people of all backgrounds and perpetuates the explosive population growth previously mentioned.

Neighbourhoods

Neighbourhoods

In total, there are 19 neighbourhoods that exist within the city of Burlington. They can be roughly grouped as the northern, central, and southern parts of Burlington due to their close proximity and the similarities they share in terms of the real estate market and the amenities that are made available to residents.

Central Burlington

Central Burlington consists of the following 11 neighbourhoods: Alton Village, The Orchard, Corporate, Tansley, Millcroft, Headon Forest, Palmer, Moutainside, Brant Hills, and Tyandaga.

The neighbourhoods here are undergoing continuous development, with many new properties going up for sale on a frequent basis. Many amenities such as grocery stores and hospitals are within walking distance for its residents.

Neighbourhoods

North Region

The northern part of Burlington is considered as one giant rural area without any further subdivisions into smaller neighbourhoods.

Because of the lack of suburban development that exists within this area, this provides for those who are into outdoor activities including golfing, cycling, hiking, and even rock climbing for those who dare. Although this neighbourhood tends to be the quietest one in Burlington, it is not too far removed from society due to Highway 407 being nearby.

South Region

The southern district of Burlington is made up of Aldershot, Downtown, Roseland, Dynes, Shoreacres, Longmoor, Pinedale, and Elizabeth Gardens.

Common amenities include the famous Royal Botanical Gardens, nearby daycare centers for busy parents, and a farmer’s market that sells local produce at prices that will suit any family’s budget.

One surprising feature noted by its inhabitants is that the traffic in the downtown area is manageable and not too intrusive, even during peak rush hours!

Real Estate Market

As you can imagine from the description of northern Burlington, you can expect to see several fully detached properties which are extremely large in size and extravagant in design. You can expect multiple bedrooms and bathrooms alongside pools and designated recreational rooms. With rare exceptions, the homes in this area have prices in the 7-figure range. All of the golfing clubs seem to be aggregated around here. The only downside is that there are no major retailers around, necessitating a drive into the more urban areas of Burlington in order to access them.

Central Burlington is attractive in that it contains the largest diversity in terms of home prices.

Many properties include ample vegetation that adds a distinct look to each home, and the community tends to take immense pride in their properties.
