No. 20: Northwest Brampton

Average sale price: $777,823

This is frontier town. While the area doesn’t have the usual amenities of a sprouting ­neighbourhood—new bars, boutiques and ­restaurants—it’s a gold mine of value and space, where pre-construction three-bedroom townhouses were recently selling for as low as $339,990. Driving up Mississauga Road is one of the best ways to understand the scale of development on the fringes of the GTA: every spare farmer’s field has sprouted a sales centre. Narrow lots make for limited yard space, but many of the area’s subdivisions are planned around parks. The Mount Pleasant GO station is accessible from anywhere in the neighbourhood, and trains to Union leave at least twice an hour during the morning rush.
