HURONTARIO REAL ESTATE REVIEW!

THE REPORT CARD

Overall Ranking: T-18th/19

OVERALL SCORE: 6/10
AFFORDABILITY 7/10

Affordability

Hurontario real estate encompasses many different lifestyle options. You have the older, yet affordable apartments, near the City Centre, with older detached homes and semis similar to what East Credit will likely soon become. Hurontario is also home to many of Mississauga’s small to mid-sized businesses, so it’s very possible many of you who are reading this work in the area. Also, with the Hurontario LRT coming to Mississauga, prices here are soon to rise in the area. If you’re looking to invest in an area of Mississauga with loads of potential then Hurontario is a good bet.

DESIRABILITY 6/10

Desirability

Hurontario, as you might have guessed, is defined by Hurontario Street between Britannia and the 403. This stretch sees Hurontario lined with older condominiums and tons of detached and semi-detached options to the east at west ending towards Mavis and the 403 (this is where the 403 goes from East/West to North/South). Its tied together by the retail plazas at Hurontario/Eglinton just north of the City Centre. So, for those looking to be close to the Centre, but would prefer to be just outside of it, Hurontario is a solid option.

SCHOOL QUALITY 5/10

School Quality

Hurontario is a neighbourhood where, depending on the street you live on, you could be in either a high-ranked school or a bottom feeder. For instance, those south of Eglinton and west of Hurontario get slotted into the well-respected Huntington Ridge P.S., meanwhile east of Hurontario get slotted into #65 Nahani Way. For middle school, those west of Hurontario get into the #5-ranked Fairwind Sr, meanwhile those east get put into #14 (out of 18) Bristol Road Middle. It’s extremely important to pick the right pocket in Hurontario. It can mean a huge difference in the quality of education.

WALK + DRIVE 6/10

Walk + Drive

Hurontario, despite its penchant for condos, is very car-reliant. Highways 401 and 403 are very nearby, so it gets a fair score of 6/10. With the City Centre so close by, residents benefit from a plethora of retail options as well. Just make sure if you’re moving here (and most of Mississauga to be honest) to have a car!

Huntington Ridge PS is a part of the Applewood Heights family of schools. Huntington Ridge is one of two schools I’d aim for if you’re set on the neighbourhood of Hurontario. It’s been extremely consistent over the past five years which is always good to see out of a school.

FEATURES

The Lifestyle

Hurontario can be hectic at times as the street is the main artery that runs through Mississauga and is going through constant improvement. However, beyond the main street you’ll find tons of pockets of quiet areas to call home. Add in the convenience of having the shopping and retail so close by along with easy highway access and you can understand why many choose Hurontario as a happy medium neighbourhood.

Who's Next Door?

Most of the new entrants are second-time buyers looking for the combination of convenience and affordability with maturing families. Others are newer immigrants or professionals occupying the condos that surround Hurontario street. Ethnicities are extremely mixed much like the rest of the central areas of the city.

The Homes

Hurontario real estate is a large mix of homes of varying shapes, sizes and ages. The oldest parts of Hurontario have large and affordable (relatively speaking) detached homes in the now approaching their 30s. Some newer townhomes have been built just off of Hurontario to complement the condos (both new and old). The affordability and convenience factor is a pretty good combination in Hurontario’s maturing and improving neighbourhood.

The Commute

This score will improve once plans are underway to build light-rail on Hurontario street. Once that officially happens, Hurontario will be even more relied upon to be artery of Mississauga. For now, you must still rely on a car and you have very easy access to both Highways 401 and 403.
