A relative newbie neighbourhood in Mississauga, East Credit doesn’t have a long history as a residential community like neighbouring Streetsville but what it does have is a serious value proposition, particularly for young families looking for room to grow. Located in the north central area of Mississauga with easy access to both Highways 401 and 403, East Credit has a more typical suburban feel than some of the older areas of Mississauga. Most of the homes here were built in the last 25 years and are large, brick family-sized homes, many with 4 or 5 bedrooms, a decent-sized backyard and a long driveway + garage all for under $1M.
East Credit Village used to be agricultural land and green space, largely undeveloped up until the last 20 years. It used to have a landfill site that was covered over and turned into Brae Ben Golf Course. Best known for the Heartlands hopping complexes at Mavis Road, East Credit is a large scale suburban planned community. There are some older more established areas built in the 1980’s which have be absorbed into the boundaries of East Credit.
There is a price point for everyone, with the large availability of townhomes, semi’s, and detached homes that range from medium to executive size. Many homes are brick, with modern floor plans. The area stretches between the 401 and the 403, and is centrally located, great for commuters.
Life in East Credit is very convenient for everyone. With the Heartland Shopping Centre you have every retail and big box store imaginable at your doorstep.
East Credit’s best commuting feature is that it’s located close to Hwy 401. It’s also close to one of Mississauga’s major work centres. The closest GO station is about 10 minutes away. Commuting from here isn’t the best in the city, but its affordability affords you the extra few minutes of commuting time.
