We also highly recommend that - if you are buying a home and need a mortgage - you work with one of the best Oshawa mortgage brokers at: https://www.gtamortgagepros.com/oshawa/.
We are fully licensed real estate professionals ourselves, meaning that we must follow all rules and regulations in place in Ontario. All our Realtors are fully licensed and top professionals. Our service has great reviews, amazing feedback and we have dozens of happy customers. In addition to this, there is no obligation - if you don't like the Realtor we send you, we will send you another one - however, this has yet to happen in the years we have been running this service. Finally, we don't make any money unless you are happy (see the next section).
We charge our Realtors a small fee - but they only pay it if there is a closed deal. So, if we send you a terrible Realtor who is useless and can't buy or sell a property for you, we don't make any money. This is why we only work with the best Realtors out there - otherwise we would not make any money ourselves. It is a win for us, a win for them and a win for you.
We have a free automated online home valuation report - check it out at this link: house appraisal.
Oshawa (2016 population 159,458; CMA 379,848) is a city in Ontario, Canada, on the Lake Ontario shoreline.
It lies in Southern Ontario, approximately 60 kilometres east of Downtown Toronto.
It is commonly viewed as the eastern anchor of the Greater Toronto Area and of the Golden Horseshoe.
It is the largest municipality in the Regional Municipality of Durham.
The name Oshawa originates from the Ojibwa term aaz haway, meaning "the crossing place" or just "(a)cross". Historians believe that the area that would become Oshawa began as a transfer point for the fur trade. Beaver and other animals trapped for their pelts by local natives were traded with the Coureurs des bois (voyagers). Furs were loaded onto canoes by the Mississauga Indians at the Oshawa harbour and transported to the trading posts located to the west at the mouth of the Credit River. Around 1760, the French constructed a trading post near the harbour location; this was abandoned after a few years, but its ruins provided shelter for the first residents of what later became Oshawa.
