It’s finally done! You’ve found a house, got mortgage pre-approval, figured out your finances with your Oshawa mortgage broker and bought the home of your dreams. Now all that’s left is to move. Moving can be a stressful experience even if it’s for the best of reasons. Sometimes it can even make you doubt your decisions!

To get you back in the best possible mindset and to remind you why you chose Oshawa, Ontario as your new home, we’ve put together just a few of the great reasons that Oshawa is a great place to live.

In the summer months, there’s no better place to be than in Lakeview Park on the shores of Lake Ontario, sandy beach and all. Oshawa is all about the outdoors and you can find even more greenery at the McLaughlin Bay Wildlife Reserve and Second Marsh Wildlife Area. The parks and trails of Oshawa cover almost 410 hectares and 27 kilometers of paved trails – perfect for biking! Need something for the little ones? Oshawa has you covered with 110 playgrounds, nine splash pads, 3 skateboard parks and eight ice rinks!

You were looking for a friendly town and you found one! As our Oshawa mortgage brokers can attest, over 64% of Oshawa residents said they’d help a stranger in need and over 90% said they know someone in their neighbourhood they could count on if needed.

You’ve also probably noticed, as has your friendly Oshawa mortgage broker, that Oshawa home prices are also much cheaper. You may also notice that other necessities are also cheaper than Toronto, such as utilities, clothes, food and transportation.

Oshawa also boasts a great safety rating. On Canada’s index of most dangerous cities, Oshawa was way down the list, past Ottawa, Quebec City, and most of Toronto’s other suburbs.
