A Place to Make Your Own
When it comes to the many school zones, bylaws, facilities, recreational opportunities, and other features of Peterborough, it’s important to work with a real estate agent who lives here and knows the area well. You need more than just demographics and statistics to make an informed decision on where to buy a home. I can provide you with a personal first-hand account of what it’s like to live in Peterborough. I’ve raised my own kids here, opened businesses here, and bought homes here, too. Each neighbourhood within the city has unique characteristics and offers a different lifestyle than the next. What a young couple might find appealing from an area, is likely not the same as a growing family with kids. My full-service real estate team can help you find the perfect home to match your current and future needs.
Health Care, Education, Travel
Health care is accessible and available for your family from many facilities as well as the Peterborough Regional Health Centre (PRHC), which is a large hospital located right in the middle of the city. If you or a family member is interested in pursuing first-class educational opportunities, Trent University, Fleming College, and Seneca College Aviation Campus are all located within Peterborough. As a centrally located city in Ontario, travelling or commuting to major cities like Ottawa, Toronto, or Montreal is easy by car, bus, or train. And with the 407-highway connecting to the 115 by 2020, travel times to the GTA are only getting faster. The Peterborough Airport also offers a growing number of options for convenient business or leisure travel.
The Best of Both Worlds
In general, the cost of living in Peterborough is more affordable than in other cities and suburban areas in Ontario. Our vibrant downtown is home to unique shops, a bustling restaurant scene, cafés, theatres, art galleries, and performance venues that offer something for everyone. And Peterborough’s close proximity to beautiful cottage country makes it easy to go from your front door to the dock in a matter of minutes. If you’re considering a move to Peterborough, I’d be happy to talk.
