Pickering real estate agents at The Weir Team have witnessed a tremendous increase in property values throughout Pickering over the past several years.

Let’s take a closer look at the increasingly valuable area of Dunbarton in Pickering after careful study of historical sold Pickering real estate listings.

Bordered roughly by Spruce Hill Road to the west, the 401 to the south and Appleview Road to the east, real estate values are appreciating quite nicely in this area of Durham Region.

Pickering real estate agents saw that 53 of those houses for sale in Pickering were detached and 36 houses sold in this area of Pickering were 2 storey. It took an average of 28 days on market for Pickering realtors to sell a house here.

The average selling price of Dunbarton houses by some of the best Pickering real estate agents during this period was $865,248.

Now let’s compare year over year real estate values for Pickering according to data provided by the Toronto Real Estate Board for the Dunbarton neighbourhood.

The Dunbarton real estate zone includes beautiful family-friendly streets.

Some of the most expensive homes sold in 2015 are found on Appleview Road, Spruce Hill Road, Taplin Drive, Helm Street, Grayabbey Court, Fairport Road, Spartan Court and Darwin Drive. Houses on some of these streets have sold for well over a million dollars up to $2,200,000.

Other pricey Pickering Ontario streets include Rushton Road, Gablehurst Crescent, Wingarden Crescent, Heathside Crescent, Finch Avenue, Falconwood Way and Voyager Way. In 2015 most Pickering houses on these streets sold for between $700,000 and $1,000,000.

Some of those streets are also home to great value for first-time buyers looking to buy a house under $700,000. House hunters on a budget in Durham Region may want to take a good look at Dunbarton Road, Fairport Road, Jacqueline Avenue, Wingarden Crescent, Spruce Hill Road, Appleview Road, Holbrook Court, Regal Crescent and Voyager Avenue. However with real estate prices rising so quickly in Pickering, we are finding it tougher and tougher for first time buyers to find much in this area for under $600,000.
