“I think we are seeing at least 20% more people from outside the Thunder Bay District buying real estate here since 2019.” – Olivia Pietrangelo, Lawyer
More people work from home for their job than ever before. Remote work is now normal in many industries. People are changing their lifestyles as a result of their new found occupational freedom. Some are moving and investing further away from Toronto than ever before.
Those choosing to relocate are searching for higher standards of living, lower housing prices, privacy & security. Olivia herself could be seen as part of that long term trend. Originally from the GTA, Olivia came here to attend Law School. After a few years she decided to stay to buy a home, and now lives in Nolalu.
Thunder Bay has an excellent educational system for children & teens, which feeds the local post-secondary schools: Lakehead University, Confederation College & The Northern Ontario School Of Medicine.
With great real estate value and a world class local educational system from Kindergarten to Professional Certification, Thunder Bay is a great place to raise a family. It is no wonder there are more out of town real estate buyers in the Thunder Bay market.
Moving To A Low Property Tax District With Great Real Estate Value For First Time Home Buyers
In April 2022 it is still possible to find a small detached home for sale in a middle class family neighborhood in the city listed for $134,000 on Realtor.ca. The tax rate inside the City of Thunder Bay on residences is ~1.59%.
Outside of the city, in the District of Thunder Bay some people pay less than $1000 property tax per year on a house with 25 acres. That is economical living for somebody working from home 100% remote. Many people see Thunder Bay Real Estate as a great investment because of how low the carrying costs are.
Expect The Best Of Living In The City Or The Countryside, Without Any Hassles In Thunder Bay
Choosing to live in Toronto or the GTA makes it difficult to get to experience hiking, camping, hunting or fishing for free on crown lands. Living too far outside of a city risks being unable to get supplies in an emergency or go see a movie when you want to.
Living near the outskirts of The City Of Thunder Bay is a great option for people who want the best of both worlds. If you want to physically go to big branded stores, restaurants and events, but still want access to Canada’s vast natural resources and beauty, Thunder Bay is the place for you.
The countryside of Thunder Bay District is your opportunity to live in a tight knit community with small town vibes that has access to all the big branded stores you rely on.
