Oshawa became a bit notorious in early 2017 after nearby GTA house price increases started to creep eastward toward this hard-working city on the shores of Lake Ontario.

Thankfully would-be homebuyers are getting a bit of a break, with home prices in the area starting to decline, according to statistics released by the Canadian Real Estate Association.

Still, more than a few first-time and move-on-upper home buyers are now aware of how beautiful certain parts of Oshawa are—and this has led to increased demand for detached homes in this motor-city. Those looking for a bit of luxury also realized that the dollar certainly goes a lot further, when it comes to luxury living, in this working-class city.  To help you appreciate the most expensive homes on offer, here are the top 10 most expensive homes for sale in Oshawa as of August 1, 2017.
