Should one buy a condo in a Mississauga builder project in 2020?

A lot is happening in the builder condo market at Mississauga

There is a lot of buzz going on since the news of so many builder condominiums coming up in the Mississauga. Downtown Mississauga is going to see some massive condo developments over the next two decades.

Should one Buy Resale or Pre-construction?

First Time Buyers and Renters Prefer Already Built-Out Condos

First time buyers or renters opt for resale condos for various reasons. They prefer to move within 2-3 months and also can end up paying as low as 5% down payments vs. builder condos that require up to 20% down payment.

Investor Buy both Resale as well as Builder Condos

People buying pre-construction pay a higher price than resale condos because the builder is giving them a future price. The cost of construction is always going up and so is the land cost. The builder is taking all of this into consideration and projecting what the prices of those properties will be in the near future.

Having said that, there is no guarantee that the market prices will surpass the builder prices at the time of possession. No one can predict the future prices. We can only tell you how the market has done up until now.

New Trend – No Parking or Locker is Included in Price

One of the trends seen since 2019 is that Mississauga builders have stopped including parking and locker in the condo price. They sell them separately. The average price of a builder new condo in Mississauga including parking and locker is $1,000 per square foot.

How Downtown Mississauga Condo Projects Performed in the Past

I can share my past experience when Chicago, Limelight and Parkside Tower 1, 2 and 3 condos were sold by the builders. The market prices at the time of their delivery did not come to the level at what the builder had sold them initially. These investors had to wait at least five to six years from the date of booking in order break-even or to see some profit.

Long Term Investing Should Be One’s Goal, Not Flipping!

Now this all looks like a thing of the past, because these investors had bought 1 BR units at Chicago for $220K (in 2007), Parkside Tower 1 & 2 for $260K (in 2011),  Grand Park (2010) for $230K , in Parkside Towers 1 and 2 for $235K. So the condo market has done tremendously well since the beginning 2017 up until now. Before that the condo market did not grow at the same pace as it has been doing now.

Just to give you an idea of approximate prices in a nice building at Square One Mississauga: 1 BR in Dec 2016 was $275K, 1 + Den was $295K and 2 BR was around $350K (850 sq ft). Currently, similar sized resale prices for a 1 BR in Sep 2020 approx. is $490K, 1 + Den is $535 K and 2 BR is around $650K.

People have seen so much growth in these condos and now so many more will be added to the market. We have a great immigration growth coming in and the rental market has been good so far except for the COVID period which is a concern in the current market that we are in.
