The Lowdown on Erin Mills

Your Typical Neighbour

Erin Mills boasts a wide array of demographic profiles depending on where you are in the neighbourhood; there are higher end luxury homes in Sawmill Valley and Bridlepath, entry level condos and condo townhouses for first-time-home-buyers and downsizers alike, and a variety of mid level semis and detached 70’s style properties as well - each attracting a different kind of buyer, making for a wonderfully diverse neighbourhood. There is a higher proportion of older residents (45-64), with the number of renters being well below the city average (18% versus 31%), and the overall average income being right in line with the average for Mississauga.

What We

Diverse housing choices, relative affordability and ability for first-time-buyers to jump into the market, lots of shopping choices from smaller boutique shops to big box stores.

What We Don't

You definitely need a car to get around in this neighbourhood as there is no central walkable strip for shopping, and although Erin Mills is close to the Clarkson and Erindale Go Stations it doesn’t have much transit of its own (aside from the MiWay bus stops).

There are a variety of property types available in Erin Mills, ranging from the condo apartment perfect for first-time-buyers and downsizers, condo townhouses that work as good entry level homes, typical 70s style semis and detached houses, and lastly the luxury properties in Sawmill Valley and Bridlepath. 

 

Adjacent to the Glenn Erin Inn and Spa (so you know it’s a nice street) you’ll find the Canyon Springs condo development, which is an incredible building for downsizers! The other main condo apartment complex in Erin Mills is on Burnhamthorpe, a short drive away in a more walkable pocket - it’s right across from South Common Centre, a shopping plaza with two places to do your groceries (No Frills and Walmart), a few fast food restaurants and coffee shops, and the South Common Community Centre and Tennis Club.

 

The condo townhouses are scattered throughout Erin Mills, but overall are a great price when you are looking to get into a central Mississauga neighbourhood. Typically the maintenance fees on these properties are on the lower end which really allows a buyer to put more of their monthly expenses into their mortgage amount.

 

The mid level 70s style semis and detached properties are not cheap (as none of the real estate in the GTA is really “cheap” anymore) but is good value in comparison to some of the other surrounding neighbourhoods. Lots of opportunities here for move up buyers, and even first-time-buyers (depending on their price point).

 

Lastly, Sawmill Valley and Bridlepath are the more prestigious pockets of Erin Mills - million dollar plus properties with a few smaller family homes intermixed allow for a continuation of diversity in this pocket.
