Square One Condos Market July 2018
Square One Condos Market July 2018 – GTA Summary
Average Condo Price Continue to Climb at the end of the 2nd quarter of 2018
As per Toronto Real Estate Board’s July 2018 condo market report, the average selling price for condominium apartments sold through MLS in the second quarter of 2018 in Mississauga was up by 4.5% from TREB’s July 2017 condo market report. Overall across the GTA, condo apartments have outperformed other housing types over the past year, in terms of price growth. First time buyers continue to be a key driver of condominium apartment demand. The relative affordability of condos versus low-rise home types, especially with the onset of stricter mortgage qualification guidelines and generally higher borrowing costs, has also been a key factor underpinning tight condo market conditions and continued average price growth.
The graphs below illustrate some key highlights for condo apartments in the City Centre area of Mississauga.
Square One Condos Market July 2018 is ripe for First Time Buyers
For first time buyers, it is a great time to buy Square One condos before the prices go up at a faster pace making them unaffordable. Since April of 2017, Square One condo prices have increased by approximately 4.5%. This is a good sign as we are not experiencing a double-digit growth as we saw in 2016 and early 2017.
Mississauga is the closest suburb to Toronto and the price gap between a similar condo in downtown Toronto and Mississauga condo is as high as $100,000. This means that there is a lot of room for growth of Mississauga condo prices. It also means that many buyers will find it harder to get an approval to buy a condo in downtown Toronto, who will in turn flock to places like Etobicoke and Mississauga. This will certainly increase Mississauga condo prices sooner rather than later.
Square One Condos Market July 2018 indicates a good time for Sellers
This is a great time for sellers who are thinking of selling their condos and moving up. The price gap between condo apartments and low rise homes like condo townhouses, semi-detached homes and detached homes is currently at the narrowest since last ten years or so. Market has shifted in favor of affordable condominium apartments and there is a slowdown in sales of expensive freehold homes. So if you’re looking to sell your condominium with the 30 days sold guarantee and for top dollars, feel free to contact us!
Square One Condos Market July 2018 is ideal for Investors
It’s a great time for investors looking to buy Square One condos. Top reason being that prices are stable and rent has increased by almost 9% in one year. There is an acute shortage of rental properties and with an influx of new immigrants, rents are bound to increase year after year. The situation is actually critical for renters. Mississauga is one of the most favoured destinations for newcomers, people on work permit and international students. It is well-connected with the rest of the GTA and has a great demographic mix. Mississauga is more vibrant, multi-cultural and affordable when renting as compared to downtown Toronto.

Wesley condo towers are also under construction and they are slated for completion in 2020. Ground work and preparation has commenced for M City Tower 1 & Tower 2 and actual digging should be just around the corner. In our experience, it can take another four years or more (by year 2022) to see completion of tower 1 & 2.
Square One Condos Market July 2018 – other news and our views
There is a lot of construction currently in progress in and around Square One. The Hurontario LRT loop is being dug out and construction at the site will likely last for two or three years. While this may pose some inconvenience presently, in a way it heralds a positive change that is coming to the area, ensuring a well connected, vibrant and dynamic downtown core.
Won’t it be nice if developers are incentivised by the Peel Region or Ontario Province to construct rental buildings over condos for sale? Daniels builder had taken steps in this direction by completing a rental only building in Central Erin Mills in 2016 and is also starting an affordable housing development at 360 City Centre Dr soon.
If 50% of new buildings coming to the Mississauga downtown core can become rental only buildings, this step can certainly help ease off rental rates and can also help hopeful renters secure a place to call home.
