Richmond Hill Real Estate Market


Richmond Hill is one of the GTA’s fastest developing areas.  Residential construction seems to be the number one issue in terms of development.  It is sure that any potential renter will be able to find a place of their liking in this developing area.  The city of Richmond Hill has a lot to offer to its residents and businesses.  Richmond Hill is now one of the fastest growing communities in Canada, with a large and multicultural population. It had 162,704 residents according to the 2006 Census, representing 23% growth from the previous census. The town's population is projected to exceed 200,000 by the year 2015.


Many of Toronto’s businesses are relocating to Richmond Hill for the cheaper land prices, which in turn allows property owners to offer their places for less.  Bounded by Highway 404 on the East Side, Richmond Hill is located north of Toronto and south of the town of Aurora.  This area was recently made part of the Greater Toronto Area in 1998 and has quickly become one of the GTA’s fastest developing areas.


Located just west of Highway 404 along Highway 7 is one of Richmond Hill’s newest developing areas.  Large companies are now relocating their regional offices along this street that also has many smaller businesses.  Along this street you will find a large number restaurants and stores.  Shopping is excellent in this area as the variety of stores offer a number of products and services.  There is a substantial strip of Asian based stores and restaurants along the street that adds a different flavour to what Toronto is all about.  One popular spot year round in the town of Richmond Hill is the wave pool, which is located in the Lois Hancey Aquatic Centre on Hopkins St.  The pool is an indoor wave pool that features surfs that reach up to 4 feet and is also home to a 160-foot waterslide.
