Community Comments on Thorold Home Prices

It’s sad that Thorold people are leaving because they can’t afford to live here any more.

Cheryl Lee Wyllie

It’s not just happening in Thorold – most homes in Niagara are now selling for more than the locals can afford on their salaries.

Katherine Power

If you are just selling great? But if your selling and then buying don’t think it’s worth it?

Stephen Zeliznak

Young people are moving out east. This is going to be known as Toronto South because young adults from this area can’t afford a house here.

Consider All Expenses in Thorold Home Ownership

Before making an offer to buy a house in Thorold, keep in mind that the cost of home ownership doesn’t stop when you unlock the front door.
Consider the regular maintenance, utilities, and insurance, emergency repairs, and other expenses make it important for families in Thorold to account for all the hidden costs that might happen. While some are unavoidable, there are ways to reduce expenses or prevent them altogether by following a few simple tips:

Create an emergency fund.

To better prepare for and manage unforeseen costs, create an emergency fund. Many experts agree that having three months’ worth of your salary saved is the best back up plan to tap into if a pipe bursts or a rainstorm reveals a leaky roof.

Pay attention to product warranties.

A recent survey shows that 60 per cent of Canadians consider a company’s warranty program when making a purchase decision — and for good reason. A solid warranty program can save you money in the long term.
When researching appliances and electronics, look for those that have extended warranties and out-of-warranty programs. For example, LG offers a 10-year limited warranty on appliances, as well as an Out of Warranty program with a flat rate for labour and parts.

Don’t take shortcuts.

If a service or repair quote seems too good to be true, it likely is. It’s important to always look for a manufacturer-approved and authorized service provider to repair home appliances or electronics. If the service provider isn’t skilled in repairing your specific product, you run the risk of further damaging the item. Find more information at
