In the 1960’s the government created a program called “Home Ownership Made Easy” (H.O.M.E), a joint venture between developers and the Ontario Government. It was designed to make home ownership possible by reducing the carrying cost and down payment requirements.
Home could be purchased for as little as $15,295 to $17,997 with a down payment of between $765 – $1,900 respectively. The lots however were not included in the purchase and the buyers were not required to pay the land transfer taxes. Buyers had the option to lease the lots for approximately $43.50 per month, buy it outright or purchase it with no money down and were giving up to 35 years to pay t off. Today, buyers no longer have to pay land leases as they have been paid off.
The concept of the Zero Lot Lines was pioneered in the ‘G’ and ‘H’ sections in Bramalea. Rather than placing homes in the middle of lots, homes were built close to the front, back or side of the lot allowing for more homes to be built.
Homes in the ‘G’ & ‘H’ section continues to be very affordable and attracts first time home buyers and investors alike.
There is always something to do in the 'G' & 'H' section. Chinguacousy Park is a short distance away offering activities for individuals of all ages such as the petting zoo, mini golf and ski hill. For those of you who enjoy walking, Chinguacousy Trail is close by. It passes through eight parks, one of the being Hillsdale Park in the 'H' section.
Anyone wishing to commute to Toronto or surrounding areas can easily access Highways 410 and 407. The Bramalea GO Transit is conveniently located at the corner of Bramalea Rd. and Steeles Ave. and provides 1991 parking spaces. Public transportation is also easily accessible.
The 'G' & 'H' section is also surrounded with great retail stores.
