Ajax Real Estate for Rent
The city of Ajax, just as historical as its neighbors, is a prime location for renters of Ajax for rent to hang their hats for any length of time, and to think they have World War II to thank for its splitting off from being a part of the then-town of Pickering. Quite rapidly over a short period of time, Ajax began building itself up, adding a sewage treatment plant, a series of schools, and all of the other amenities required for a thriving town. Growing into a city, when World War II ended, all of the soldiers who had been discharged needed a place to live, so the site of the Defense Industries Limited shell factory (that started the building of this town) was leased and turned into suburban development space. Gradually, the modern-day city of Ajax evolved from this, and in 1955, the city received its name in honor of the H.M.S Ajax, one of the naval vessels that served in the first significant victory of the Second World War on the open waters. Today, Ajax has a thriving real estate market, lots of amenities, and plenty of parks and greenspaces for people to take full advantage of at their own leisure.
When it comes to real estate in Ajax, the city is home to a healthy amount of virtually all types of it, from condominiums to condo townhomes to freehold townhomes to even detached homes, with just as many of them being for rent as they are for sale. Renters who are seeking to find their future rental can hang their hat at Ajax for rent, as these rentals are all close to not only shopping amenities and recreational comforts but are also close to the numerous bus stops scattered throughout the city for Durham Region transit. Also, the city has enough of a diversity that it can truly accommodate just about any type of renter, from the larger families to couples to bachelors to even business entrepreneurs looking for a "mobile command center" from which they can base their online business out of. The rental units in Ajax are also all within easy access of the Highway 401, which is the primary highway running through the city; renters have the ability to commute to places like Toronto, Kingston, and even Mississauga within a respectably quick amount of time. As for major roadways running through the city itself, Kingston Road East serves that purpose, and most of the amenities in the city hug the sidewalks of that road.
Greenspaces are plentiful throughout Ajax, and they give renters of Ajax for rent the opportunity to be able to relax and enjoy nature without having to leave the city for it. The best greenspaces tend to be the parks that are located on the shores of Lake Ontario, as they possess unparalleled views of the azure horizon, all while providing the expected comforts of the natural greenery. Ajax is also home to plenty of schools (which should come as great news for renters with children) and shopping options, as well as recreational entertainment (a theater and a healthy handful of golf courses, for examples). Renters will also be able to enjoy the presence of the beautiful "lookoff points" that allow for views equally spectacular as those of Lake Ontario (such examples of these lookoff points are Lion's Point, Simcoe Point, and Da Silva Point). Renters who are also concerned about a place where they can go in case of a medical emergency will be able to have access to the Ajax-Pickering General Hospital at the southern end of the city (on Harwood Avenue South). So what are you waiting for? The city of Ajax is ripe with opportunity for renters right now!
