It’s no secret that real estate prices in Canada. have been going up for a decade strong now. Unlike our U.S. counterparts, the Canadian real estate prices seemed almost immune to the 2008 global recession. Some places have gone up so much that for many people buying real estate is no longer an option.

Are you interested to know how Mississauga real estate competes on a global level in terms for pricing?

The first thing you must know is that the value of condos is calculated on a “per square foot” or “PSF” basis. The higher the PSF, the more expensive the unit will be.  Most PSF calculations measure the internal square foot size of the unit only (no balcony), and may or may not take into account a locker or parking spot.

To put this into perspective, pre-construction condos in Mississauga sell on average for about $425 (+$25/-$25) per square foot. This means, that a 625 square foot, one bedroom condo goes for about $265,000. This usually includes a locker and a parking spot, but does not take into account such things as floor premiums or upgrades, which can drive the price of the unit up.
