Brampton Real Estate
Largely developed in the 1980’s, the city of Brampton has expanded rapidly over the years, with subdivisions, and neighbourhood developing and expanding rapid rates. Real estate wise, the city is made up of a wide variety of condominiums, townhomes, and beautiful family homes. Many of these homes line quiet tree lined streets and are located close to schools, parks, and shopping.
Real estate in the city varies in price a great deal, depending on where it is that you are looking, and what you are looking for. Smaller townhomes and condominiums (2 bedrooms for example) can be purchased for mid to high $200’s; However, these prices increase greatly as you get closer to Heart Lake Conservation Area, and looking at larger lots.
I tend to divide Brampton in 4 areas when I refer to real estate in Brampton. I simply divide Brampton down the middle with Hwy 410 North to South and Williams Parkway East to West.
Most expensive homes are nested east of Hwy410 and north of Williams Parkway, especially in the far east, in the Castlemore neighbourhood. Thos homes start in mid $600’s and can go well over a million. These homes are generally newer and built in last 10-15 years with modern layouts and finishings.
West of 410 and north of Williams Parkway is what I like to call the “Value Brampton”, with GO train, Buses, Shopping and newer homes built within last 5-15 years. Most of these homes are in the $400-$600K range and area a real steal in the current real estate market.
South west and south east Brampton are predominantly older homes and can be good value as starter homes, or investment rental homes, but also provide proximity to schools, transportation and shopping. Those can be bought from $400k and up.
Perhaps one of the biggest things that draw home buyers to the city of Brampton is the wonderful proximity of the city to the other major cities within the Greater Toronto Area. Only 20 minutes away from Mississauga, and 35 from Toronto, many of the residents of Brampton take advantage of the wonderful location to commute to either work or school.

Like many cities, the city of Brampton holds unique events and festivals throughout the year.

This event happens every fall. Another popular event within the city is the Arts Walk of Fame, which takes place each September. This event pays respect and recognizes residents of Brampton that have achieved great things within the arts and entertainment industry.
