After the sudden increase in residential prices at the start of summer, the Mississauga real estate market is slowly calming down, so now might be a good time to look if you thinking of grabbing some Greater Toronto real estate in a up-and-coming area. To help you get the gist of what Sauga has to offer to potential homebuyers, we’ve compiled a list of three diverse properties in various parts of the city with very different price tags. We’re curious to find out which of the three do you think is worth its asking price and also to see what kind of aspects you take into consideration when looking for a new home.
#1 880 Dundas Street West, 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom, $274,900
Our first choice is a budget-friendly one-bedroom apartment, listed for just half the average residential price in the city. Situated in the Erindale real estate market, the property is just outside Downtown Mississauga, close to all amenities including shopping, restaurants, public transportation and parks.
The south-west facing penthouse unit boasts huge windows throughout, offering sweeping views over the city skyline. The apartment has been well-maintained by its previous owners and has also been upgraded just recently. It comes with a good-sized bedroom, a large living room with floor-to-ceiling windows, a charming kitchen with newer appliances, a bright office nook and a washroom. The development complex also offers numerous perks to its tenants, including a number of amenities and designated parking spots.
#2 2871 Castlebridge Drive, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, $949,900
Second on our list is this all-brick, 3-bedroom home, which is a tempting example of Erin Mills real estate. The property can be found in a quiet, peaceful neighbourhood, in the proximity of schools, shops, restaurants, public transportation and even the highway.
As you enter the house, you’ll immediately feel right at home, thanks to the family-friendly atmosphere which pervades the entire property. You’ll definitely appreciate the 3 generously sized bedrooms and the 3 separate bathrooms located on the upper level. The main level is ideal for entertaining your guests, since it features a formal dining room, a huge living room and a well-equipped kitchen with wooden cabinets. The double-car garage and the fully-fenced and landscaped back yard are additional highlights.
#3 1449 Crescent Road, 6 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms, $3,945,000
Concluding our list is this luxurious single-family home, located on one of the most prestigious streets in the highly sought-after Clarkson-Lorne Park real estate market. The property offers plenty of privacy, nestled among mature trees on a beautifully maintained private lot. It is located close to private schools, highways, parks and public transportation.
The property is impeccable throughout, something you notice from the first moment you step inside the home. You’re bound to be impressed by the dramatic anteroom with cathedral ceilings and marble floors. The formal living and dining rooms are similarly impressive. The enormous chef’s kitchen is equipped with everything you might need, making the time you spend there a lot more enjoyable. The 6 enormous bedrooms and 5 baths provide enough space not only for your family, but for guests as well. Enjoy the many perks this home has to offer, such as the huge walk-in closet, the spa-like bathroom, the private home theatre and its very own wine cellar. You can also entertain your guests outdoors, on the charming porch located right next to a cozy fireplace or at the designated barbecue area.
To summarize, we have here three very different properties in an attractive real estate market.
The first home has an affordable price tag and has a convenient and central location. The recent upgrades made throughout the apartment are also a plus, but wouldn’t you rather pay less and do the improvements yourself as you like them? Then there’s the small amount of space and the fact that it’s got only 1 bedroom and 1 bathroom—are you sure you wouldn’t want to be moving out of here quite soon?
The second home also features a desirable location, close to all necessary amenities, and has a spacious interior. There are 3 bedrooms and 3 baths here, but you’d need to consider whether this number of rooms merits the price tag. Also, even though the property has an attractively decorated interior, the outside is really rather plain, and the garden could do with some landscaping – perhaps you might be getting less than you’d expect for close to $1M!
The third property offers space and privacy, is located in one of the most desirable areas in the city, and most certainly counts as luxury Mississauga real estate. High-end details and appliances are to the fore here but, once again, we don’t reckon the outside façade is that special – you’d expect a proper mansion for this money! And while the property might be described as an entertainer’s paradise, do you think you’ll have enough guests to make all those facilities worth the cost?
