CLARKSON REAL ESTATE

Clarkson is one of the original areas of Mississauga, located south of the QEW highway, with Winston Churchill Boulevard on its west border, and a somewhat indefinite dividing line east of Southdown Road, on its eastern flank. Clarkson was built primarily in the 1970’s, and it offers a wide range of housing types and prices – from affordable first time buyer townhouses situated along Bromsgrove Road, to the executive style condos and townhomes of Walden Spinney, to a vast and affordable range of semi-detached and fully detached houses – there is much here to enjoy.. At the top end of real estate options in Clarkson, there is also a very expensive and exclusive residential neighbourhood bordering the natural wetlands area known as the Rattray Marsh, with some of the finest homes available in a unique natural setting.

Clarkson real estate offers a lot of very attractive benefits to the savvy buyer: mature neighbourhoods, with tall trees, spacious older homes with large lots and plenty of character. Newer subdivisions just can’t match the lot sizes, parkland, and proximity of Lake Ontario, to name just a few of Clarkson’s many features. Although the homes are older than some of the newest subdivisions, most have been updated and treated with loving care throughout their lifetimes. Quite simply, it’s a great area, with relatively affordable housing stock for young families (with one exception, as we will see). Clarkson has also been recognized as one of the best places to invest in Canada.

Clarkson gets its name from one of its very first settlers, a man named Warren Clarkson, who arrived in the township in 1808 and remained there till his death in 1882. This part of what we today call Mississauga,  was first referred to as Clarkson’s Corners and boasted a general store and post office, run by the Clarkson family.

Bradley Museum Log Cabin

Clarkson was originally renowned for its orchards, particularly for apples and strawberries, and was considered at one time to be the ‘strawberry capital of Ontario’. You can visit several heritage areas and museums, such as the Benares Historic House and the Bradley Museum. Lucky visitors to the Bradley Museum can occasionally spot a herd of wild, whitetail deer in the neighbouring forest.

Rattray Marsh

Clarkson is also the location of a serene and relatively untouched nature area called the Rattray Marsh, next to Lake Ontario. Renowned for its undistrurbed wetlands, wildlife, birdwatching, scenic pathways and boardwalks, the Mississauga Rattray Marsh Conservation Area is also bordered by a very special area of residential homes. The houses surrounding the Rattray Marsh are highly sought after, and those in the area directly adjacent of the marsh, known as the Rattray Park Estates, are some of the most exclusive in the GTA. Streets such as Meadow Wood Rd. and Watersedge Rd. boast mansions to rival those of the ‘rich and famous’ anywhere in Canada. There is very little turnover in the Rattray Marsh area of Mississauga, as most people who move there, rarely want to leave! For directions, see: Rattray Marsh Trail Map

Clarkson GO Station

Call Randy Selzer – Your Real Estate Agent in Clarkson Now: 416-433-3556

Buying or selling a home is the biggest financial transaction that most people will do in their lifetimes. While the Greater Toronto Area real estate market has been exceptional over the past several years, the high prices have also increased the stakes for both Buyers and Sellers. With the large dollar amounts being exchanged these days, it is essential to work with an experienced agent like Randy.

6 Reasons Why You Should Give Randy a Call:

  • 1. Knowledge and Skill – the realtor you choose to work with should be a fulltime, professional agent with the type of knowledge and skills that only years of service can provide. Many newer agents believe they know everything that they need to know, but experienced agents like Randy know that many of the important details and trade secrets only come through working in the field for many years.
  • 2. Accurate Pricing – the single most important part of selling any home is to price it correctly at the start. Professional realtors eliminate the guesswork by providing you with a detailed analysis of other nearby sales, providing data that points to the right price for listing your home. While some agents may puff up the price to get your business, they are not doing you any favors, because even in today’s booming market, pricing too high can delay or prevent the successful sale of your home. Likewise, pricing the property too low leaves money on the table. Pricing accurately is the first step to getting your home sold successfully.
  • 3. Effective Marketing – selling real estate effectively is not a simple job and most real estate agents understand this. Today’s marketplace demands professional hi-res images of your home, virtual tours, staging, with the best features of your home presented in the most attractive way possible. We pride ourselves in delivering to you the best ad and social media campaigns possible showcasing your home to get offers.
  • 4. Expertise with Offers – comes from repetition, over and over. You’ll feel comforted by Randy’s 25 plus years of experience with offers, as he has successfully sold many hundreds of homes. Some of the most common issues include: handling bidding wars, working with offer dates, bully offers, low ball offers, offers that fall through, and much more! We will guide you so you will feel confident during the offer process.
  • 5. Trusted Associate Team – a professional realtor usually has a team of associates that can provide you with “one stop shopping”. Randy works with trusted home stagers, home inspectors, mortgage professionals at the bank, independent mortgage brokers, lawyers, photographers, videographers, contractors, cleaners, and movers that are part of a team that will help you to buy or sell a home, without having to search for services on your own.
  • 6. After Sale Support – every day we feel grateful for the many repeat customers and referrals that come our way. We are firm believers in the Law of Attraction. We are blessed to have helped so many people in their real estate needs. Our goal is to make it happen for you, so that we can enjoy our journey together.
