Etobicoke is a former municipality within Toronto, Ontario, which is situated in the Greater Toronto metropolitan area.


This former municipality will attract property owners that appreciate various means of transportation. Travelling on foot is feasible for home buyers in Etobicoke; many daily needs can be met by walking. However, it is at times challenging to get around by bicycle in Etobicoke since the cycling network is fairly poor, and riding is made strenuous by the typically steep topography. Etobicoke is reasonably transit friendly as a consequence of many rapid transit stations with access to the 109 | Meadowvale Express and Bloor - Danforth Line, and over 50 nearby bus lines. The favoured transportation option in Etobicoke is very often driving. It is easy to find a parking spot, and the majority of houses for sale are a rather short drive from the closest highway, such as Queen Elizabeth Way.


It is a reasonably short walk to reach both primary and secondary schools from any location in Etobicoke. Along with public schools, there are private elementary and secondary schools. In contrast, daycares are not especially numerous and therefore not always within walking distance. In terms of food, it is frequently practical for house buyers in this part of Toronto to do groceries on foot. Furthermore, those who like to dine in restaurants will have a fair number of opportunities, and a small selection of coffee shops is available as well.


The character of Etobicoke is exemplified by its relaxed environment. This part of Toronto is quiet, as there are usually low levels of noise from traffic - although there are still several noisier sections, especially near the airport (YYZ), Queen Elizabeth Way, Highway 409 or one of the railway lines. Finally, this part of Toronto also features a good amount of greenery as many tree-lined streets are around. There are over 350 parks close by for residents to explore, like Rowntree Mills Park and West Humber Parkland, making them very easy to reach from most locations within this former municipality.


Roughly one third of homes in Etobicoke were built between 1960 and 1980, while many of the remaining buildings were constructed pre-1960 and in the 2000s. In this area, about 40% of dwellings are large apartment buildings, but single detached homes are also present in the housing stock. Roughly 60% of the population of this former municipality own their home and the remainder are renters. This part of Toronto has a good selection of housing sizes, ranging from lofts to four or more bedrooms.
