Apr 6, 2022

The ongoing revitalization of Toronto’s St. Clair Avenue West offers the promise of what’s to come: a rejuvenated, walkable neighbourhood with a mix of old and new, access to transit and a wealth of shopping, socializing and dining options.

Dunpar Homes’ Lambton Towns project is part of the St. Clair Avenue West transformation and offers a rare low-rise living opportunity with its collection of 94 luxury back-to-back townhouses at 2650 St. Clair. The elegant English Georgian Manor-style, three-bedroom townhomes feature quality construction and open-concept main-floor layouts and are generously sized with 1,581-square feet, two baths, single car parking and rooftop decks.

Many families want to stay in the city and Lambton Towns provide a great solution with beautiful, thoughtfully-designed towns in an area well-serviced with daycares, schools, recreation facilities and parks. It’s a more affordable option to downtown and provides easy access to the city core.

While many more just do not want the responsibilities or permanence of home ownership, with all the repairs and shoveling and mowing that go along with it. This is where new townhomes in Toronto and townhomes in Mississauga are an excellent investment opportunity. Townhomes satisfy a growing need for a specific type of housing in Toronto by addressing the issue of what the Canadian Centre for Economic analysis called in its 2018 report, “The Missing Middle”. “Townhouses, stacked townhouses or semis—products for people who don’t want to be in condos and can’t afford detached—fill the gap, and it’s been an issue for years,” Dunpar Homes COO
Michael DiPasquale recently explained to Canadian Real Estate Magazine.

The Need for Financial gifting for New Townhomes in Toronto

The Need for Financial gifting for New Townhomes in Toronto

But housing prices aren’t coming down, and with the current elevated mortgage rates, financial support courtesy of the so-called bank of mom and dad will remain a necessity going forward. Financial gifting has been entrenched in the GTA’s housing market for quite some time. As far back as 2015, the bank of mom and dad was a significant source of financing in the pre-construction and resale residential submarkets, and as the home prices have surged, so too have financial gifts. According to an analysis by CIBC, financial gifting in real estate purchases rose from 20 per cent in 2015 to 28 per cent six years later. That translated to an average of roughly $52,000 nine years ago, and $82,000 in 2021, despite the share of financial gift recipients remaining flat.
