Rickson Ridge is as diverse an area as you will find in South Guelph. With a location that lends itself to many lifestyles, the neighbourhood has undergone a major demographic change in recent years. Typically viewed as an ideal family area centred around a popular public elementary school, Rickson Ridge PS, proximity to a growing list of amenities has further heightened the attractiveness to younger buyers. With views over conservation lands from many back decks, plenty of families are choosing to dig deep roots here. The neighbourhood also has a number of condominium complexes that have surged in popularity with investment buyers over the past decade.

Large detached homes and family-oriented town homes tend to be some of the fastest moving properties in the city. Year after year, values have continued to rise with percentage increases unseen elsewhere in our market. Construction styles of the 1990’s with smaller footprints and larger open-concept designs of the 2000’s have both proven to be sought after resale purchases. Lot sizes are generally smaller in both width and depth when compared with other South end neighbourhoods. Terraview Homes were incredibly successful with the construction of many larger home styles as well as more compact link and town home designs on both sides of Edinburgh Rd South.

Another important housing component to the Rickson Ridge neighbourhood is the student and investment market. Complexes like 66 Rodgers Road, 920 Edinburgh Rd South, 1055 Gordon and 1155 Gordon have all become popular havens for students in recent years. Proximity to direct lines to the University of Guelph on public transit, walking distance to daily needs shopping and a quick walk or bike straight down Gordon street have all helped to realize significant property value increases for investment buyers. These complexes are often considered the number one location for parent investors looking for a quiet, safe and handy location for their child attending post secondary in Guelph. These complexes are fairly well contained and tend to offer very little burden on the surrounding family-oriented streets.

If the ultimate goal in a property search is convenience, sociable neighbours and a consistently safe investment, then the Rickson Ridge neighbourhood should make its way to the top of your list in South Guelph.
