It will likely be starting at 1.5 and higher based on their previous releases. Than you have to factor in lot premiums.

Takes me 30 mins to drive (no rush hour) from Vaughan or 30 mins by train from Rutherford station, good luck getting in DT faster from Oakville

This is getting silly.

I dont live in Oakville. But anyone who thinks Vaughan is easier to commute from is a bit delusional. When there is no rush hour, from oakville it would be quicker than from vaughan. In peak hour, oakville has express trains to union - which rutherford has less of. Also - have tried venturing near 400/401 or drive anywhere around vaughan in rush hour? its a total cluster you know what. Try driving from oakville, still bad - but you will see the difference.

Real estate prices are not always rationally based on location. Kleinburgh or new kleinburgh whatever that area is - is extremely high priced and higher than oakville but the location is horrible. You have to drive a good 20 mins before you even get to 427.

Also to add, schools are NOT better. And for those that care, you are further from the lake - though of course half way to cottage country.

Totally agree.

Oakville, Burlington, Hamilton are like remote suburbs of GTA. I cant believe they want to sell 2 million dollar houses there. horrible situation of GTA, hope we continue to see more buyers in these areas at these prices to push prices up in GTA.

On express trains that I've been on, it takes 28-30 minutes to get from Union to Oakville Go Station.

But rush hour will be the killer to DT from anywhere lol.

Go train fares are getting expensive but not a lot of choice for people working in DT.

Vaughan, specifically Rutherford station, does not need express train. Go train goes to union in 28 minutes with just 2 stops between and it is every 15 minutes I believe in busy hours.
