The Quinte region has become one of the most attractive places to move to for people wanting to move out of the big city, especially from the Toronto area.
Member of the Quinte Homebuilders Association, as well as the Bay of Quinte Regional Marketing Board, John VanHuizen says local homebuilders are working as hard as they can to keep up with the demand for new houses.
Most of that demand is coming from people from east Toronto.
Meanwhile, VanHuizen says carpenters, electricians, drywallers and other construction trades are in high demand.
VanHuizen credited the advertising efforts of the Regional Marketing Board for increasing awareness about the Quinte region in the Toronto area.
