Showcasing Waterloo Region

It’s no secret that Waterloo Region is vastly growing into a popular place to live. We are seeing record high house sales and prices in Waterloo Region.

“Reaching a new milestone in December, was the average price of a Detached home sold through the KWAR’s MLS® System which for the first time surpassed the half million mark; a benchmark that was repeated again in January, with the average detached home selling for $501,821, an increase of 22.7 percent compared to the same month a year ago.”

Limited housing inventory is keeping the demand strong and houses are continuing to move quickly in Waterloo Region. We are seeing people from all over wanting to move to Waterloo Region all for various reasons.

With February being known as the month of ‘love’ I want to know what you LOVE about Waterloo Region and what makes it a great place to live from your perspective.

Is it…
• The restaurants?
• People?
• Job opportunities?
• Trail or parks?
• Or maybe it’s easy access to all the great monthly races put on by RunWaterloo 😉

Personally, I love the fact that we have 2 amazing universities and 1 great college in town. If it weren’t for Wilfrid Laurier University being here I may have never met my wife Laura who moved here for school.

    Hoping this qualifies as an entry.
    I’d tell a student that there’s such a variety of education opportunities here (so many institutions!) as well as a variety of living styles. With such variety, students can try out different options and see what really suits their needs.
