The city of Mississauga has its own city council and a population of over 700,000. Mississauga is better known as a bedroom community to the thousands of people who work in Toronto but don't want to pay Toronto prices to carve out their own little slice of territory. Some people buy Mississauga houses after first owning starter homes elsewhere, but more people make the move from Toronto after deciding that they want to settle down. Depending on where you live in Mississauga and where you work in Toronto, your commute to work can be as little as 30 minutes to an hour.

The best part about buying a house in Mississauga is that you will get a much better deal on property here than you would in Toronto in most instances. Toronto is so densely populated now that much of it is taken over by condo towers and town houses, so that actual single family detached homes have become quite scarce and very expensive. By contrast, Mississauga's makeup is the opposite. There are some options if you're looking for a condo in Mississauga, but most of the housing is made up of detached homes of varying sizes and neighborhood makeups.

Because there are such a wide variety of properties in Mississauga, living in Mississauga will suit a wide variety of people. Young professionals just buying their first house will have the opportunity to buy a decent sized property here. Families looking for more room to grow can afford more house out this way. And retired couples looking to settle into a community will find their neighbors friendly and engaged. Since Mississauga is also a very small-business friendly city, you can look for a location for your business while you're shopping around for a house you like.
