Buying a Home in Mississauga
Canada’s sixth largest city, Mississauga is a bustling, affluent, diverse collection of neighbourhoods with a top safety record and top schools.
Living in Mississauga
The development of modern-day Mississauga is often credited to former Mayor Hazel McCallion (“Hurricane Hazel”). Under her guidance, and over almost four decades as the city’s longest-serving mayor, Mississauga grew exponentially from 1978 to 2014. It now features distinctive areas such as Square One, a bustling hive of downtown activity where many go to live, shop, play – and work. In fact, there has been an explosion of corporate interest in the city over the years, with many companies choosing to establish their headquarters here.
If you buy a home in Mississauga, you’ll also never lack for something to do. The city features several community centres, libraries and museums, a revitalized waterfront and abundant dining, entertainment and recreation opportunities, including several parks and more than 20 different trail systems. All of this, and the fact that it also boasts top schools and has been rated Canada’s safest city for years, also make Mississauga a family-friendly city.
Mississauga real estate
If you’re looking to buy a home in Mississauga, you will have many options, including condos, townhouses, and semi-detached and detached houses. A Mississauga real estate boom that began in the 1990s and continues today gives you the opportunity to own a new construction condo, townhouse or house at more affordable prices than in Toronto. Or you can choose some of the sprawling older neighborhoods with tree-lined streets, lots large enough for pools and spacious four-bedroom homes.
