    Affordability

    Compared to Other Villages in Mississauga

    Score Factor 4: Overall Affordability & Value

    Affordability:

    Home prices in Applewood are slightly above the Mississauga average, however when compared with other areas in east Mississauga or Etobicoke, Applewood offers opportunity for the average family buyer. More and more of my clients are moving into this area because they can still afford a detached home.

    Value:

    The best value in Applewood comes from buying a home that needs cosmetic updating. It is an older area, which means the lots are better than in newer areas. If you are willing to update the interior to modern standards, you can create a very high demand home.
