Pickering realtors 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 real estate zone of Rosebank in Pickering which has been home to many new build houses recently.

Located south of the 401 near the beautiful Petticoat Creek Conservation Area, real estate values are appreciating quite nicely in this area of Durham Region.

Pickering real estate agents saw that 43 of those houses for sale in Pickering were detached and 34 houses sold in this area of Pickering were 2 storey. It took an average of 27 days on market for Pickering realtors to sell a house here.

The average selling price of Rosebank houses in Pickering during this period was $803,587.

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

Quite a good rise in Pickering property values in this area, much of it thanks to many high quality new-builds in the area.

An interesting rate of increase has also occurred for property values in Pickering, specifically the Rosebank neighbourhood. Homeowners have enjoy an exponential rate of growth on property values in the neighbourhood.

And from 2014 to 2015, those looking to buy a house in Pickering saw that the actual selling prices rose by an impressive 12.5 percent.

Very good news indeed for those who own a house in Pickering in the Rosebank neighbourhood.

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

Some of the most expensive homes sold here in 2015 are found on Rosebank Road, Oakwood Drive, Rougemount Drive, Dyson Road and Toynevale Road. Houses on some of these streets have sold for well over a million dollars up to $2,000,000.

Other pricey Pickering streets include Pine Ridge Road, Staghorn Road, Cowan Circle, Mountain Ash Drive, Lakani Court, Dahlia Crescent, Gillmoss Road, Anthony Court and McLeod Crescent. 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 Foster Court, Nomad Road, Moorelands Crescent, Oakwood Drive, Lytton Court and Summerpark Crescent.

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.
