For many years, first time home buyers have been purchasing properties in Thorncliffe Park. This is due in large part to the location, reasonable starting prices for real estate, and multi-cultural environment.
Although Thorncliffe Park was originally settled in the early 1800’s, it was not until the late 1950’s when the area was developed by Thorncliffe Park Ltd. into the community that exists today.
Before development, spanning from 1920 to 1952, the area known as Thorncliffe Park was home to a popular race track, which attracted visitors from far and wide.
Even though most of the people living in Thorncliffe Park rent, due to the large number (more than 30) of low and high rise apartment buildings, there are opportunities to purchase in this community.
The majority of buyers opt for a unit in one of the townhome or condo complexes located on Overlea Boulevard.
