Aurora Townhouse vs Barrie Detached
I need enough parking space for three cars (family of three, each of us working in different locales), so I know my selection of townhomes will be limited in Aurora with this budget, but there appears to have been several units that sold within my budget in the last 30 days.
What are everyone's thoughts with respect to potential appreciation between the two? Aurora will clearly always have value given its close proximity to Toronto, but does Barrie have a higher growth potential with the coming electrification of the GO train (allowing for travel to Union Station in 50 minutes), the construction of the Bradford Bypass, and the inherently faster appreciation rates of detached properties?
We work in Vaughan, Markham, and Barrie respectively, so there is no need to commute to downtown Toronto. That being said, Aurora will be shorter commute for two of us.
