New Homes for Sale Oakville
Oakville, once a recreational spot for week-ending Torontonians, is home to one of Southern Ontario’s oldest communities. The area immediately south of the town centre known as the heritage district has many homes dating into the 1800’s. Oakville boasts are many…. An official customs house and port of Entry into British North America not to mention it was an endpoint to the famous underground railroad. Early ship building and merchant activities are well documented from 1828 when William Chisholm completed works on the harbour. A burgeoning community formed around this early outpost with its fertile land and the town today continues with a charming marriage of the old and new.
As custom home builders, Chatsworth Fine Homes resonates with the sense of history that is central to Oakville. Many of the new homes we are privileged to build are for private clients with a specific wish list, the overwhelming majority of our builds are not for resale. However, many builders have purchased infill lots in some of the older neighbourhoods and offered them as new homes for sale. Oakville, on the other hand has expansive tracts of land, formerly farms, mainly in the north of the town which are developed by larger production builders and offer more affordable solutions for buyers looking for a new home for sale in Oakville.
We asked Brad Miller of Goodale Miller Real Estate. He commented “Buyers prefer new, especially in the higher end of the market. After a home is 5 years old we see home buyers considering a renovation when thinking of a purchase. It may be a kitchen makeover, master bath reno…. Things tend to date quite quickly so up to date is a must in this segment of the market.” This moves many buyers to consider new homes for sale and Oakville offers a somewhat sporadic supply of new homes for sale in the infills of the more mature neighbourhoods.
If budget is more restrictive, purchasers in the market for new homes for sale in Oakville may then consider the production homes in the north and west of Glen Abbey or River Oaks.
