MEADOWVALE REAL ESTATE REVIEW!

THE REPORT CARD

Overall Ranking: T-3rd/19

OVERALL SCORE: 7.5/10
WALK + DRIVE 8/10

Walk + Drive

While Lisgar won the overall desirability score, Meadowvale is superior in this category. It has superior access to all amenities (including its own Town Centre) and still boasts its own GO station. The trains here run on the same line (Milton) and will have you downtown in under 50 minutes. Again, trains leave from 630-815am and return from 4-7pm. The extra point here also goes to the easier 401 access that Meadowvale provides over the 407. We all hate the 401 but we still use it because we refuse to pay the exorbitant rates of the 407. If you’re more of a commuter, Meadowvale is a superior option.

DESIRABILITY 5/10

Desirability

The boundary lines between Meadowvale and Lisgar are often blurred and many see these two neighbourhoods as the same in many respects. In fact, they’ve scored the same in my rankings. The main difference is that Meadowvale is a much older and mature neighbourhood with a very different housing mix. While people are flocking to the younger Lisgar at a faster rate, Meadowvale is still an attractive option because of its superior access to amenities like parks, schools, libraries, and community centres.

AFFORDABILITY 10/10

Affordability

Meadowvale, along with Lisgar, is one of the most affordable neighbourhoods for a family looking for their first home or “move up” home. Meadowvale real estate prices haven’t jumped as quickly as neighbouring Lisgar because it boasts a very different housing mix. While Lisgar has younger, more traditional 2-storey homes, Meadowvale is an older relic with many more sidesplits, backsplits, and bungalows. That’s not to say you can’t find a traditional home (there are definitely plenty), but when looking on the MLS you may see a few odd-looking homes!

SCHOOL QUALITY 7/10

School Quality

The gem of Meadowvale is #7-ranked Plum Tree Park. It’s a great school that boasts one of the top French Immersion programs in Mississauga. The rest of the schools in Meadowvale are near the Mississauga average but are still great options. Perhaps the only school to avoid would be Plowman’s Park. At the high school level, Meadowvale residents share Meadowvale SS with residents from Lisgar. It’s a solid high school that draws in good students.

Plowman's Park PS

To be frank, this school has performed extremely poorly over the past few years and if you’re considering Meadowvale (which you should) there are certainly far better and safer choices in this neighbourhood.

FEATURES

The Lifestyle

Meadowvale is one of the most active communities in Mississauga. Tons of parks and trails and the famous Lake Aquitaine bring families out every weekend. The Meadowvale Town Centre gives its residents all the amenities it could need on its doorstep.

The Commute

Meadowvale has one of the three major GO Train station stops in North Mississauga, so for those who work downtown, it’s your best alternative (unless you like sitting in traffic on the 401). Check out the walk drive section above for more details about your potential commute.

The Homes

Meadowvale is one of Mississauga’s most affordable neighbourhoods. Meadowvale real estate comes in all shapes and sizes. Most are within the 25-35 year-old range. Along with condos and condo towns, affordability is still a reality. Here you can still aim for the turn-key starter, detached home.

Who's Next Door?

Most of the new entrants are first-time home buyers looking to start a family in Mississauga. The rest are those that bought or upgraded to their second home 25-30 years ago. They’ve raised their families and are comfortable with the tranquility of the neighbourhood.
