Scarborough’s West Hill Area, the Most Affordable Neighbourhood

Updated: Dec 16, 2019


In Scarborough’s West Hill area, the most affordable neighbourhood in the 416, a condo costs $325,223 on average, and saving up for a down payment would take the equivalent of 7.7 months’ worth of rent in that area.


There are still neighbourhoods in Toronto where condos are affordable to first-time buyers — but they’ll have to move far from the nearest subway station, or urban shopping street.


Zoocasa has released a survey of condo prices in 35 Toronto neighbourhoods, comparing them to rental rates in those areas. It found that, in the northeast and northwest corners of the city — those farthest by transit from the city’s major employment hubs — condos are still quite affordable.

In 13 of the 35 areas, condos sell for around $450,000 or less, which is within affordability range for the average-earning household in Toronto.
