    Over the years we have been blogging about Mississauga condos by mainly offering tips for buyers and sellers. This special blog is being dedicated to all condo property management companies in Mississauga. The purpose of this blog is to shine a different perspective on what Realtors and the public feel is the role of a condo property management company, and how to increase overall condo owner satisfaction within any given building.

    As an active Realtor, I have seen it all; the good, the bad and the ugly when it comes to condos and the property management companies that run them.

    The “good condos” are simple; the buildings are clean, the guidelines are strictly enforced, there are updates made in some of the older buildings, issues are addressed and fixed quickly.

    The “bad condos” have a few problems, that can be fixed relatively easily. Minor things that need to be addressed, such as outdated gym equipment, burnt light bulbs and constantly broken elevators. There may also be a need to change a contract for landscaping or the window cleaners, but generally speaking, these condos still have hope.

    A Guide To Renting Condos in Mississauga

      If you are looking to rent a condo in Mississauga, we compiled a checklist to make sure that you have not forgotten about anything.

      The first thing you should know is that most leases for condos in Mississauga do require a one-year commitment. If you do find something short term, it’s not uncommon to pay a premium of 30-40% more than the market rate. Next, 95% of condos available for lease are unfurnished, which means you have to have your own furniture. Furnished condos can difficult to find, and rent for $300-500 more than similar unfurnished units.


      Before Submitting An Offer

      1. The first step to renting is to make sure that you have a job letter from your employer. The job letter usually should state that you are a full-time employee, getting paid a certain amount of salary and that your position is permanent.  Landlords like to make sure that you are working and that you can pay your rent. If you do not wish to disclose your income, then you can contact us and we can help you out. Another option would be to have a job letter stating where you work and how much you roughly make.

      Mississauga’s New Transit System

      Written by Eric Skicki Sunday, February 19th, 2012

        Since Ontario is expected to grow by another 4million people over the next 30 years, the federal government and the Province of Ontario are partaking in a few transit projects to move all the residents efficiently and effectively as possible. They aspire to build a new transit system that will get transit riders from one point to the next as quickly as possible and as easy as possible. The vision is to make it easier to travel from and through Mississauga and the GTA. In 2009, the Bus Rapid System (BRT) was developed as a successor to the Bus Bypass Shoulders and another BRT system. The project is expected to finally conclude in 2013, connecting Winston Churchill Blvd and

        Erin Mills (adjacent to Highway 403) and along 403 between Erin Mills and Mavis Road on the West and connecting the 403/Eglinton corridor from City Centre to Renforth Dr to the East. The system is expected to cover 18km along Highway 403 and Eglinton Ave. It will link with local buses and inter-regional transit and subway systems. What does this mean for residents in downtown Mississauga?
