Average Detached Home Prices In Mississauga Fall Over $523,000 Since January
September 2022 rates saw the average price of a detached home in Mississauga drop year over year for the first time since November 2019. It’s also the fifth consecutive month that prices have fallen, due mostly to the sharp rise in interest rates.
Data from the Toronto Regional Real Estate Board (TRREB) show that the average price for detached units in Mississauga in September was $1,440,490, versus $1,594,863 in September 2021, indicating a year-over-year decline of almost 10%. Even more significantly, the average price in 2022 alone has fallen from $1,964,077 at the peak to the current $1,440,490, a decline of a staggering $523,587.
The last time prices showed a year-over-year decline was in November 2019, but only at 1.1%. The average price went down to $1,104,975 in November 2019 from $1,116,813 in November 2018. Since then, the average price for detached homes continued to rise, peaking at $1,964,077 in January 2022.
