The Benefits of Condo Living In Oakville, Mississauga, and Burlington

While real estate has cooled in some parts of Canada, competition in the Golden Horseshoe area has remained fierce. Aside from their excellent location and proximity to Toronto, their stunning waterfront and high quality of living, the Mississauga, Oakville, and Burlington areas remain local economic powerhouses. At Alex Irish, we are experts in this region, and we want to help you find the right condo for your lifestyle at the best price possible.

Why should I choose this part of the GTA?

For quite some time, this area has been well-regarded for its luxury dwellings, perfect location, and plentiful amenities, or nearness to them. In the past 5 to 10 years alone, we’ve seen increases in economic development and global investment added to an already robust local community, positively affecting the job and housing markets. We are proud to say we are experts in this region due to its beauty, prestige, and attractiveness on a global scale.

Our new condo listings in Mississauga, Oakville, and Burlington are some of the hottest ticket items on the market. If you’re an avid investor looking to purchase somewhere new, or you’re thinking about where you’d like to settle with your family, we invite you to consider this incredible area and all of the things it has to offer.

If you love that new car smell, look into Mississauga Condos

Mississauga is booming. Being the closest of the three cities to Toronto, it has a flourishing business center and attracts all ages to its lively, multicultural neighbourhoods. It has a different feel to the other areas and ticks all of the boxes of a great property investment:

  • A strong growth market, expected to continue for the foreseeable future due to 1300+ multinational companies and approximately 88,000 businesses
  • Access to the Go Train, ViaRail, and other methods of public transport
  • A robust local economy, and close proximity to Toronto
  • Great public facilities, including highly reputable medical facilities, schools, and more
  • A myriad of lifestyle activities, markets, shops, and events

Mississauga, known as the ‘Gateway to Canada’ due to its close proximity to Toronto Pearson International airport, is experiencing a surge in new condo developments. In fact, the city has its very own impressive urban skyline, with more development expected as investments pour into the airport with the intent of making it one of the world’s largest travel hubs. It’s clear that new condos in Mississauga make incredible investment properties in this region, and with our expert knowledge of this area, we can help you find the best property for your needs and budget.

The benefits of living in beautiful Oakville

If you’re looking for a more serene way of life, still with access to all of Toronto’s jobs and big-city feel, Oakville is for you. This region has a reputation for its picturesque waterfront, excellent schools, and luxury living, while still being nestled away from the intensity of other cities in the GTA.
Oakville has been experiencing robust growth in new condo developments and in the condo resale market. Prices continue to increase, but so does local and global interest. There are many buyers heading to this area, and some are waiting to see how the market progresses. However, based on our knowledge of the local economy, housing market trends, and estimated developments in the GTA, we see a continuous increase in Oakville condo sales and encourage people to get their feet wet sooner rather than later.

New Condo developments on the Burlington waterfront

A little further down the highway, and right next door to Oakville, is Burlington, Ontario. If you are already familiar with this area, you know that it offers a stunning lakefront lined with trails and open green space and rests adjacent to high-end boutiques and restaurants. This is the suburban city, with excellent schools, quiet neighbourhoods, and all of the amenities of a big city. It even holds one of the biggest national music festivals, plus food festivals, and more.
Burlington is also uniquely situated right in the middle of the Toronto to Waterloo ‘Corridor’, otherwise known as Canada’s answer to Silicon Valley. It boasts hundreds of tech companies and startups, bringing in more and more investments from south of the border and globally. It makes this region fantastic for anyone looking for work in the tech field, but also anyone looking for a career in health sciences or education, driven by Hamilton’s nearby economy. You can mix career with idyllic suburban living by shopping for a condo in the Burlington area, as its location keeps it safely away from the hubbub of places like Mississauga and closer to nature with a smaller-town feel.
With all of these elements to boast about, it’s no wonder that lakeview condos are springing up along the waterfront. With modern design elements within walking distance of local parks, these condos will make an excellent investment for many, including singles, retirees, and avid investors. There are other condo developments being built with careful consideration as to public transportation proximity, while still in keeping with a beautiful neighbourhood. The real estate market is expected to grow as more people discover this hidden gem and all it has to offer.

What are the benefits of condo living?

Condo living is expected to increase over the next decade, especially in the Oakville, Burlington, and Mississauga regions. But, why is that the case? There are a few reasons for why you should consider investing in a condo. Condos attract all kinds of investors, families, singles, retirees, and new people to Canada.
The number one benefit to a condo is that it’s luxurious, while also being less work than owning a home:

  • There is no exterior repair maintenance needed
  • Condo fees cover a myriad of responsibilities you would prefer to avoid, including garbage disposal and snow removal
  • Condo living also provides favorable locations, including the downtown core or the ultimate proximity to amenities
  • They provide security and seclusion

Finally, condos can also cost less than a house while providing you with the same square footage. So, if you are an investor or a first-time home buyer, investing in a luxury condo can be an excellent choice, and ultimately, the smarter route for long-term growth.

Condos offer great design at an even better price

If you love modern design and city living, condos provide everything you could want and more. They offer modern facilities and aesthetics, but at a rate that is often more affordable than in a home unit, which is why the demand for condos is driving development and a high resale value. There are countless benefits to condo living!

Why condos are becoming a great option for families

For a young family, the GTA offers countless opportunities for career growth, education, and activities to get involved in with your little ones. However, the soaring costs of the housing market have made it more challenging for parents, even if both have stable careers. This can make buying a home daunting, or even downright impossible for some, which is where a condo can make a fantastic option.
With its better size-to-price ratio than many traditional homes, condos can offer the space families need. With the growth in demand for family condos, developers are taking note. The rise in three-bedroom condos has begun in response to this interest, especially in the Mississauga, Burlington, and Oakville areas. Investing in a condo can mean saving for a larger down payment for a future home investment, perfect as your children grow.
Other benefits for families include the local communities living in the same condo units, where children can make friends and play together in a safe, closed environment. They often also provide swimming pools and playgrounds and tend to be pet-friendly, with walking trails and green spaces located right outside the front door. A condo can be a fantastic all-in-one opportunity for a family; an investment worth making again and again.
