You can see the difference living in Durham or Toronto region. Toronto still offers competitive property tax compared to the 905 areas. Transit and subway make Toronto the favourite by most buyers and sellers. The drawback is the Toronto Land Transfer Tax which for some second home buyers affect their decisions to move to 905's.
Durham region such as Ajax offers an alternative to Toronto living. Most of the properties are newly constructed and have a very fair prices. Developments in Durham's are evident and may influence home buyers to consider moving. Commuting to down town Toronto from Durham's is answered by the strategic locations of Go Buses and Trains.
Either way, make your choice and it depends on your preference.
