Search Barrie, ON Apartments
On the western shores of Lake Simcoe in Central Canada lies a small city by the name Barrie. It boasts of a population of slightly over 127,000 people. Despite its location in Simcoe County, the city is politically independent. Perhaps it is the city’s location on the northern parts of Greater Golden Horseshoe that justifies its population. Though industrialized, the entire area is densely populated and to some extent, affordable.
It would be easy for anyone to allude that the cost of living is the city’s major draw factor. A day or two in the city however, reveals that Barrie boasts of several other positives. Chief among them is its friendly, safe and vibrant nature. As a matter of fact, the city has an enviable reputation for its social atmosphere and high standards of living, making it one of the best cities in Ontario to raise a family. Its close proximity to the Greater Toronto area, value priced properties and several social and basic amenities also make it an ideal location for business people who want to invest in the area.
With its wide array of challenging ski opportunities and swimmable beaches, Barrie is without a doubt an excellent place for outdoor enthusiasts. Parks and green spaces also abound along Kempenfelt Bay, which offers extensive roller skating, walking and biking trails. Expect to pay around $692 for a bachelor apartment, $883 for a spacious one bedroom apartment, $1,037 for a two bedroom apartment and $1,133 for a three bedroom apartment. Note that other factors such as whether an apartment is furnished or not and its location may affect pricing.
