This is the eighth segment of a 20-part blog-series that showcases Mississauga's unique commmunities. We realized that a lot of our clients were coming from outside Mississauga, and while knowing the top schools is important, they have asked for more information about the individual communities these schools reside in and the real estate available. This is an important criteria not lost on us as finding a neighbourhood that fits your lifestyle is extremely important. We've already ranked the communities based on school zones (which you can find here), so now let's take a little bit of time to get to know our communities. Next up: Erin Mills!

Final Thoughts on Erin Mills
Erin Mills is very similar to its neighbour to the east in Erindale. There are lots of affordable homes in the area (mostly built in the 1970s) that may not look pristine, but have been well maintained and upgraded by its owners. In contrast to these homes, you have the secluded and luxurious homes in the Sawmill Valley neighbourhood (seeing a correlation between higher-ranked schools and property value???). Erin Mills boasts great access to Oakville and other neighbourhoods in Mississauga including Central Erin Mills just to the north with the Erin Mills Town Centre and Credit Valley hospital.
On the school side, Erin Mills has had its fair share of problems. Three schools (Ashgrove, King's Masting, and Pheasant Run) are slated for closing by 2015.
