Guelph or New Tecumseth for new House
Me and my wife have our jobs near YYZ Airport and the crazy prices of houses in GTA left us with tough choice between a condominium in GTA or a town house in suburb with around 45min commute each way.
We choose the second option, thinking we would be commuting together, save more buying a freehold townhouse far away instead of paying around $1k fees just for condo maintenance. Also we like to have backyard, even if they are small.
This would be our first home, and we are really struggling to make the decision regarding the location, Guelph with a college and being big and surrounded by Kitchener and Cambridge seems more vibrant, but the house in New Tecumseth is bit cheaper, and we think the traffic is going to be less.
Could you guys please share your two cents regarding the pros and cons of both locations.
We would be very grateful.
