I think I mentioned it on here before that the towns South of Windsor have the most potential due to climate and the fact it isn't crowded and expensive. Very affordable housing and excellent services available. You are still in Canada and don't have to change provinces. So no issues with received Old Age Security and health coverage with your Ontario health card.

I was just talking with a senior Timmins couple who bought a house in Amherstburg, sold their house in Timmins but are keeping their cottage which is near Timmins as they will come back up at times. They love the fact that the Detroit airport is so close and they can get cheap flights to Arizona to visit friends.
I agree, the area has really been undervalued for a very long time, and now people are finally taking notice of it’s many positive attributes. Unemployment rate is now the lowest in the whole province, at 4.6%, home values are rising fast and population growth has just started to rev up in the past few years.
With Detroit’s economy and reputation now on the rise, the whole region on both sides of the border should boom!

Renters Fuel London Building Boom as City Passes $1B Mark Again

https://lfpress.com/news/local-news/...-year-in-a-row

London has a sizeable construction boom going on which is truly fantastic to see. I suspect things will slow down but become steady in the future. There are quite a few tall buildings under construction at the moment and there are more that will hopefully start this year. I figure London is also going to start to see some spillover from people leaving the GTA in the coming years, which will continue to contribute to population growth.
