Getting a foot on the property ladder is no easy feat in Southern California. Fortunately, remote work has allowed many first-time buyers to expand their home search radius to more affordable markets, particularly those in the Inland Empire.

Ontario, a city of approximately 165,000, offers a number of new townhouse developments for buyers with a budget of less than $500,000. Known for its abundance of hiking trails, craft breweries and olive groves, this growing community has a promising future ahead of it. Here we’ve rounded up four new construction projects in master-planned communities, complete with resort-style amenities.

Also part of the Neuhouse community is Alto, an enclave of contemporary Spanish row townhomes. These stylish residences offer up to three bedrooms and 1,611 square feet of living space.

In addition to the Rec Center, Neuhouse boasts a tranquil park with large grassy areas, a walking path, comfortable benches and a children’s playground. Once complete, this community hub will be the perfect spot for picnics, playdates and games of fetch.

Sporting Transitional Spanish and Modern Farmhouse style exteriors, the townhomes at Citrus are anything but ordinary.

Brookfield Residential’s Style Made Simple program allows purchasers to choose from designer-curated color and finish palettes, taking the guesswork out of personalizing your new home.

Beyond its extensive amenity offerings, Canvas Park has an onsite shopping center called New Haven Marketplace. Here, you can shop for groceries at Stater Bros. Market, perfect your crane pose at YogaSIX, take your pooch for a check-up at New Haven Animal Hospital, or pick up dinner from Pio Pico’s Tacos. Even more restaurants and businesses are arriving this summer, like Brew Haven Brewery, Okami Ramen and Primal Cuts.
