Thinking about a move to a home in Newmarket, Sharon or Aurora?

233ProspectHR (2)Thinking about a move to a home in Newmarket, Sharon or Aurora?
Begin with a thought about the style of home best suited for your lifestyle and comfort. Consider the location, amenities and size of land that comes with that home. There are countless opportunities and choices. The most common two storey style home with living areas on the main level and bedrooms on the second level often appeal to families.
These two storey homes may be older homes or new builds. New subdivisions provide a wide selection of two storey homes with modern features and finishes, situated on small lots and may be close to your neighbour providing a larger home with less land. The older two storey homes may not have the ‘bells and whistles’ as a new build, but are situated on larger lots. Purchasing a new two storey on a larger piece of land will carry a higher price tag and it will be located on the outskirts of town. The empty nesters and more mature clients are often looking at a bungalow with living area and bedrooms on the main level. In keeping with this concept, the bungaloft having a master bedroom on the main living level and two additional bedrooms and washroom on the second level, will provide the comfort of sleeping on the main level, while children, grandchildren or guests are on the second level. A raised bungalow indicates there are stairs from the front door to the main living area and may not be suitable for buyers hoping to avoid stairs. Bungalows often have three bedrooms, with the fourth bedroom style being more of a challenge to find. There are large bungalows available on larger pieces of land, but as with the two storey homes on large lots, they are often located just outside of town. Another style of home often built in the 1960’s or 1970’s, namely a sidesplit or backsplit offers living on three, four or five distinct levels. As the name indicates, a sidesplit will provide living areas off to the side whereas a backsplit will extend the living areas towards the back of the home. Families and the mature buyer, who are comfortable with only a few stairs, may gravitate to this style of home. These homes are often found closer to the centre of town. Newmarket and Aurora also offer boutique shoppers the choice of century homes primarily in the developing downtown cores, close to shopping, restaurants and transit. Century homes are over 100 years old and may or may not have official Heritage Designation. Often seen with a plaque near the front door indicating the profession of the original owner, ie: William Smith…Dentist, these homes provide a vision of the past. The plaque does not necessarily denote heritage standing so best to check with the Town or your Realtor. Many Century homes have been upgraded with current plumbing and electrical requirements showcasing stunning renovations and all the comforts of a new build. The unique charm and character of historical homes, many with distinctive architectural features and original refinished wood floors and trims, make owning one of these rare homes highly desirable. Country properties on large pieces of land (two acres and more), close to Newmarket, Aurora and Sharon are found outside of the centre of town. These country properties may be older homes or new builds with all the modern luxuries, and whichever one you choose; they share one thing in common, both will be on septic system and often on well water. Septic systems require very little maintenance and well water can be tested in town at no charge.
