The COVID-19 pandemic, and the subsequent lockdowns, have caused a tremendous increase in demand for semis or townhomes. These types of houses provide the extra space that we need in order to comfortably go on with our work or daily routines – not to mention that our residences have also become our primary spots for entertainment and fitness. Unsurprisingly, then, tenants who previously owned a condo in Toronto are now looking for semi-detached houses, owing to the latter’s additional space.
In this blog, we will be discussing the many benefits of owning a semi in the town of Streetsville and how Dunpar Homes can help you find the right one that fits your lifestyle:
Situated in Mississauga, Streetsville is also known as ‘The Village in the City’, and for good reason. It offers exactly what many wish for; the perfect blend of quaint and modern. Streetsville combines historic charm with modern amenities with over 300+ attractive and unique restaurants, shops, cafes, pubs, and much more. The neighborhood has something for each and every age group.
Streetsville hosts many events throughout the year, which means that Streetsville residents always have something to look forward to – such as the Virtual Bread and Honey Festival that recently took place. The town is also home to some of the best schools in Canada, including the second-best elementary school across Mississauga. The small-town vibe that has been carefully crafted over the years is due to the local community, family run businesses and local entrepreneurs who love interacting with the customers.
One of the biggest attractions in town is Streetsville Memorial Park, offering something for people of all ages, such as a soccer field, community centre, outdoor pool, a hiking trail, and a picnic ground.
The Dunpar community at Streetsville could not have been situated any better – every one of the above-mentioned amenities and facilities are within walking distance. The GO station, for instance, is at a mere 30-second distance, while all the major restaurants only require a two-minute walk.
Advantages of Owning a Semi in Streetsville
Alongside the easy access to numerous amenities, owning a semi in Streetsville can offer plenty of other advantages, such as:
1) Greater affordability:
Despite the skyrocketing demand for semis over the past year-and-a-half, they are still far easier to afford than their detached counterparts. Even in situations where detached homes are quite close together, the prices are significantly higher than those of semi-detached houses.
2) Plenty of outdoor space:
A semi-detached property in Streetsville offers a lot more outdoor space and greenery when compared to mid-terraces. Alongside offering you and your family space for playing and socializing, outdoor space can increase your homes curb appeal.
3) Cost savings:
Although a semi-detached home will not let a lot of heat through the walls, but having another building attached can save you a significant amount on your heating bill. Furthermore, as a prospective home purchaser, you will gain access to an energy report that will help you get a general idea of the home’s overall efficiency, which you can then compare to similar properties in Streetsville.
4) Good investment:
Another major benefit of getting a semi in Streetsville is that you can use it for investment purposes since it is bound to appreciate in value. Semis are better investment choices than condos because, if we are to assess past trends, the former has seen much greater appreciations in value, and, considering the pandemic, this trend is only going to further intensify.
5) Less hassle:
Since your maintenance requirements will be taken care of for you, this means that you can enjoy a stress-free living experience without having to put in the efforts normally required in maintaining a larger home. All you need to do is pay a small maintenance fee and everything – from repairs to mowing – will be handled by our staff.
6) Old vs. new
When it comes to owning a new townhome or semi compared to older homes that have existed for a long time, there are a lot of factors that need to be taken into account. Keep in mind that a lot of Toronto’s housing is over 100 years old. While that may sound charming, the problem with that is that older homes come with their fair share of problems. For instance, the pipes may have become old and rusty so you might have to spend some quality time and money in getting that fixed.
In addition to that, there may be old electrical or termite issues, none of which you would face in a new home. A new home will have the latest design, finishes and have adequate all the modern amenities. Plus, everything will be in order and you won’t have to stress about fixing stuff. Did we mention the best part yet? It is backed by a full Tarion warranty! Each new home is covered under the One-Year and Two-Year Warranty Protection against defects in work and materials as well as the Seven-Year Warranty Protection against huge structural defects.
7) Excellent design:
Naturally, design is one of the most important factors when it comes to choosing a new home. It is the place where you will be spending most of your time, so you need to make sure that it has been designed in a tasteful manner that you and your family find appealing. Dunpar Homes offer semi-detached houses that are full with luxurious designs, modern features, and flawless finishing.
Along with the excellent design, these Mississauga houses also brag immense practicality. Every house offers three bedrooms, two car-garages and terrific landscaping.
Who is a semi-detached house ideal for?
While it can be argued that everyone can enjoy residing in a semi, there are certain groups of people who will find these houses more beneficial.
Keeping the pandemic aside, these semi-detached homes are highly useful for growing families that need more space than what their current housing offers. If you have a large family or plan to grow your family in the near future, a semi would be the perfect choice for you.
On the opposite end, a semi is an equally good idea for someone who lives alone. The added space and outdoor area offered with semi-detached homes mean that you will not feel lonely or suffocated – not to mention that you will be surrounded by your neighbours. You will feel the warmth of company without having to compromise on your privacy or me-time.
Not only is it ideal for singles but these luxury rentals are also great for couples, both young and old. For younger couples, it is ideal because there is a high chance that they would want to grow their families, so this home provides just the perfect size for them. For older couples, it’s ideal because it’s not too small yet not too big. It is also easy to manage and spacious enough to give each other space.
