Condo Buyers

Buying your very first condo is an exciting and rewarding journey, not to mention most likely one of the greatest investments in your lifetime. To ensure a smooth process and a smart and informed purchase, it is important to work with a few key professionals: a real estate agent, a mortgage broker, a real estate lawyer and a home inspector. Not only do these individuals have a great source of knowledge that they are willing to share with you, they will also ensure that you stay on track to a successful purchase of your new dream home.

As a first time condo buyer, it is essential to become familiar with the unique differences surrounding the purchase of a pre-construction condo in comparison to a resale condo. The following are the most important and relevant items to consider: Deposit Structure, Cooling Off Period, Move-In Date & Closing Date (there is a difference), Closing Costs and Why You Should Work with a Realtor.

Regardless of the reason for the decision, more and more Canadians are leaning towards this booming market. There are plenty of advantages in condominium ownership and you may find that this decision is the perfect one for you.

Avia Condos are the latest two towers to be added to Amacon's Parkside Village master-planned community at the corner of Confederation Parkway and Parkside Village Drive in Mississauga.
The two towers are approved to be 40 & 48 storeys respectively, adding approximately 1,000 suites to the City Centre neighbourhood of Mississauga.
These newest Mississauga condos will be located walking distance to Square One, Celebration Square, Sheridan College (to become Sheridan University by 2020), Cineplex Theatres, Mississauga Civic Centre, Mississauga Central Library, just to name a few amenities and only steps away from the future Hurontario LRT (construction set to start in 2018).

Edge Towers is a new master-planned community by Solmar Developments, consisting of three standalone towers. The development is located on the south-west corner of Hurontario St and Elm Dr W in Mississauga and spans Elm Dr to the most westerly-end of the site near Elm Dr W and Kariya Dr, where you will find greenspace and a parkette. The first tower will be comprised of 293 suites, which will contribute to over 1,000 new condominium residences once all three phases are built.
