The city has beautiful waterfront communities, charming village lifestyles and a downtown where you can blow off some steam after a long week. The city itself is more than 200 years old. The city’s origins date back to 1805 when 84,000 acres of land was bought from the Mississauga’s, the then owners of the land. A community of loyalists of the United Empire settled on the and after emigrating from the Thirteen colonies. Till the 20th century, most of the land was used for agricultural purposes. The Malton airport was established in 1937 and the Queen Elizabeth Highway was opened in 1935 for easy travel between the Mississauga areas and the North and Westbound established towns.
Needless to say, the town saw rapid development, but it boomed in the 1960s and 70’s when Erin Mills and Meadowvale were established. And now almost in the first quarter of the 21st century, the town is a vibrant, thriving cosmopolitan community with a rich history in development making it a premier destination in the Greater Toronto area that is still expanding and evolving.

The real estate market in Mississauga
At present, the city is fully built. There are many large scale builder housing projects, Churchill Meadows neighbourhood was being one of them and the development was completed in 2012. The only exception is new builder condominiums in Mississauga Square One. Mississauga has a limited supply of land and this is one of the major reasons why real estate prices only grow year after year. The city estimates that the population of Mississauga will increase to 274,000 households by 2031 and one-third of the population will be 55 years old by then. As the city offers some of the finest schools for children it has always been a place where all our clients want to settle down and start a family. To keep up with the housing demand, the City of Mississauga is focusing on high-density housing (like high, medium and low rise condominiums in Mississauga), affordable rental housing (rental apartment buildings), emergency shelters and supportive housing.

What type of house are you looking for?
Well, it all depends on your family size, doesn’t it? If you have a large family then maybe a bungalow, but if you just moved into town then a townhouse can be better suited. Here’s a list of properties that you can consider, when you’re searching for houses for sale in Mississauga.
This type of property has always been a popular choice amongst Canadians. Some of the bungalows that we show have a certain rustic charm which makes it a highlight of the neighbourhood. They lack stairways and the primary living area has one floor. They predominantly a low rise home, perfect for small families
This type of housing has become a popular choice. It has three or more units, all are joined together by common party walls. Each unit contains the main level living area, an upper level for bedrooms and a basement. There are many variations exist in the marketplace.
It’s a mix of a bungalow, split entrance bungalow and the two storey home. Needless to say, you will always have a huge amount of space. Living room, upper-level sleeping rooms, a large kitchen: it can be an investment that you can be proud of.
One and one-half storey
It’s two storeys home and 60% of the living area is on the first floor. They are very affordable; more cost-effective than a bungalow.
This type of property is very popular in the suburbs and consists of two separate level sleeping areas combined with a large living area.
One side of these homes is attached to the neighbour’s home and the other side is detached.
Here’s some advice before a buy a property
Try to purchase a property in a bounded area. A major roadway, river, bridge, hydro lines, which permanently separates your neighbourhood will make your property more exclusive.
When you are buying a home, and if it comes with the appliances, pool, central air, central vacuum etc, try to obtain the make and model of the chattels or you can also insert a warranty clause for major chattels and for the pool.
If you are buying and have not sold yet, put in a flexible closing date of, say, plus or minus 10 days to your actual date. This will offer you some flexibility in case excellent offer comes in on your home but the closing is one week later than the closing date of your new purchase.
When you give your deposit, you should submit a bank draft or certified funds. If your conditional offer does not go through and your deposit was only a regular cheque, most brokers may hold the funds for a minimum of 21 days before they release the deposit. If you give a bank draft or certified funds, you will get your deposit back with 1-3 days!
