Learn all about condo living in Ajax
Condominiums in Ajax are generally a more affordable housing option for many people. The great thing is that affordability doesn’t limit the types of properties on offer on the market. Condo options in Ajax are ideal for first-time buyers, move-up buyers, as well as downsizers looking for 1 bedroom, 1+den, 2, and even 3 bedroom options.
Condo-apartments as well as condo-townhouses are offered in a variety of price points to suit a many people’s different housing needs. Condos in Ajax are located generally close to highway 401 and the GO train station as well!
North of highway 401 many new and resale condominiums in Ajax were built along Church Street, Westney Road, and in and around Kingston Road. South of the 401 most condo high rise and townhouse complex developments can be found on Lake Driveway and especially in and around Harwood Avenue South.
Apartments and townhomes range from modern developments built in the last few years to those built several decades ago. The developments were built with close proximity to major transportation arteries in mind, as well as the need for local neighborhood amenities such as grocery stores, banks, restaurants, and other entertainment.
Ajax is seeing population growth so expect more condo development in even more neighborhoods to satisfy the demand given the city’s relatively close proximity to other parts of Durham Region, as well as Toronto.
As briefly mentioned above, the two most common types of condominium living in Ajax are condo-apartments and condo-townhouses.
Condo-apartments are generally built-in highrise towers. Condo-apartment buildings typically have several hundred units. Condo-townhouses, on the other hand, are row house style homes built within their own complexes. Townhomes usually have their own own private road.
Condo-apartments are built in a variety of bedroom and bathroom options. Most common are the bachelor (no separate bedroom), 1 bedroom, 1 bedroom plus den, 2 bedroom, 2 bedroom plus a den, and sometimes even 3 bedroom options with 1 or 2 bathrooms.
Condo-townhouses are also built-in several different bedrooms and bathroom configurations with two and three-bedroom options being most typical. Some townhouses are built with rooftop decks and/or backyards as well and therefore can feel much more like a house compared to apartment living.
Both types of condo living come with monthly maintenance fees (usually ranging from a couple of hundred dollars to a few hundred depending on the size of the property). Maintenance can cover such things as all or part of utilities, roof and window replacement, garbage pickup, and amenities such as indoor or outdoor pools, gyms, libraries, and party rooms.
