COMMUNITY PROFILE - HOUSING

As the largest geographic municipality in the Greater Toronto Area, Durham Region has one of the fastest growing populations in Canada with approximately 660,765 residents in 2015 and a forecasted population of around one million people by 2031. Between 2013 and 2031, the housing supply in Durham is expected to increase 62 per cent. In response to this escalating demand for housing, the Regional Official Plan (ROP) is tailored to provide a wide diversity of residential dwellings to fulfil the needs of both the present and future residents of the region.

Durham Region offers a vast array of housing choices from traditional family homes, apartment/condominiums, townhouses, rural properties and is home to many reputable home builders, if you prefer a newly constructed residence.

Many real estate agencies are available in the region to assist the home-buyer with this important decision. For property listings and local realtors, visit the Durham Region Association of Realtors at http://www.durhamrealestate.org
