The Bay of Quinte region is one of the fastest-growing areas in the country (and for good reason). With a mix of urban and rural communities, plenty of waterfront access and affordability, it's no secret why people who have chosen to call our region home love where they live. If that doesn't have you sold yet (get it?), each of our communities also ranked on Maclean's list of Canada's Best Communities in 2021.
Families, business professionals and retirees are all thriving in this region because there are plenty of move-in ready detached and townhome selections to choose from in city neighbourhoods or out in the country. Check out the Quinte MLS listings to get a sense of what's available immediately.
If you're looking for a new build or something a bit more custom, our builders can do that, too. The Quinte Home Builders Association, or QHBA for short, is the voice of residential building in the Bay of Quinte region and represents more than 140 member builders, suppliers, trade contractors, financial and service professionals within their membership. In 2022, Quinte builders have been working on over a dozen new residential constructions across the region, as well as many custom builds.
