For any buyer looking to purchase in downtown Mississauga, the process of buying a condo can seem overwhelming. With so many buildings to choose from, buyers are often left with uncertainty, not knowing if they have purchased a unit that they will be completely be happy with. This is why I always stress to my buyers, that the most important aspect of selecting the right condo is – lifestyle. The lifestyle each condo has to offer is different, and I believe each buyer should be educated as much as possible about each condo (both negative and positive) before they commit to the purchase. In this blog post, I will cover some of the things which I noticed make certain condo buildings stand out from other condos.
Free Parking Access at Chicago:
385 Prince of Wales is one of the only buildings that has a lot of visitor parking space, since it is outdoors. It is also in front of Rabba and Dry Cleaners. It seems that many condos in Square One have two issues when it comes to parking. 1.) Time restrictions and limitations – how many parking passes a month are issued for your guests. Example only 8 passes a month. 2.) Availability – the condos that don’t have these restrictions have issues with availability. On the weekends; Friday and Saturday nights parking is very scarce.
Indoor retail store access at Solstice:
225 Webb Drive is the only building that has direct access to a 24 hour store right from the building, without having to step outside. This is great in the winter when it’s cold and it’s safe if you want to send your child down to buy some juice.
Realtor FOBs at Onyx & The Residence:
The benefit of realtor FOBs is great for when you are purchasing a condo. It is important that you not only like the lobby and your unit, but also your amenities. Purchasing a condo is a big step for many first time home buyers. It is important to see all aspects of your new home and your new lifestyle before you make that big decision of which unit to purchase. Keep in mind that when you are selling your unit in these buildings, the FOBs will become handy, since the amenities are often a deciding factor for many buyers. The Onyx at 223 Webb Dr and The Residence condos at 4065 Brick Stone and 4070 Confederation have realtor fobs available. Make sure to ask your agent to show you what the building has to offer.
Smart Elevators at Skymark:
The buildings at 25 and 35 Kinbgsbridge Garden are not only fancy but come with some really cool elevators. The wait time for these elevators in these buildings are really short given the size of the building. The elevators have built-in sensors, which can detect when you open your suite door. The moment you leave your unit, the sensors pick up the movement and know to send an elevator to your floor. This is a huge plus for those on high floors. and for those who just hate waiting for elevators to come.
FOB Activated Elevators:
In buildings such as 3515 and 3525 Karyia, elevators need FOB access in order to take you to your floor. Once inside the elevator, you would need to swipe your FOB and then press the designated floor. If you have guests arriving they will need to sign-in at security and let them know which floors they are going to. Security will grant them access, but only to press that floor button which they indicated. This is great security for women living in the building and it saves you many trips if a kid pressed a bunch of floors.
