Welcome to the colossal development, which is Mayfield Village, Mayfield village is at the moment, the biggest home development site in Brampton. This project is estimated to be complete within the next 10 years, with as many as 6-7 phases of newly developed homes. This project will include townhouses, semi-detached, detached, and work/live homes. Work/live homes are the houses described by us as having a functioning business at the bottom and a complete living area on the upper end.  Examples of such can be found in the Mount Pleasant project in Northwest Brampton.

We’ve spoken to many salespeople at the builders sales centers, and we’ve been quoted an estimated amount of homes that are to be constructed, the whopping number as quoted is 7000-8000 new homes! So you can imagine the sheer size of this project.  Of course, just one builder cannot tackle a project of this magnitude alone; so 5 different builders bring Mayfield Village to you. Aspen Ridge, Countrywide Homes, GreenPark, Marycroft, and Regal Crest all have a piece of this pie.

Four main streets, Countryside road, Dixie road, Mayfield road, and Bramalea road surround the location of Mayfield Village. If you live near the current construction zone, you probably knew this was coming. The vacant land has been sitting there ready to be developed for quite some time now. However, we didn’t expect that land to be all houses. And in a way it isn’t, the site plan purposes up to 5 or more new schools to be built, a couple retail plazas, and room for parks and recreation. Mayfield Village is an indicator as to how much demand there is for homes in Brampton.  A large percentage of immigrants who come to Brampton to begin their lives usually start out by renting in Bramptons inflated illegal basement market. These are the people saving up money for down payments to purchase houses, and many of them will steer straight into a newly developed home fresh from the builder, and will continue renting as the house comes to completion.

Even with the high prices of real estate in today’s market, salespeople who work for builders have told us that the initial phase, phase 1 took approximately 14 months to be sold out. How many homes were sold? It’s kind of difficult to figure that out as each builder has their own set amount properties they are developing. Phase 1 is developed at the Countryside and Dixie corner, with some buyers already settled in, the site is still a fresh construction area, with no grass or roads paved.  Of the 5 developers working on Mayfield Village, 4 were open for business when we went in for questions. And of those 4 developers only 1 had any homes available from phase 1. CountryWide said stated that they had 3 units available for closing in May/June of 2016. Salesperson John Staplteri advised me that the Aziz model was the one to go for, priced at $502,990 for a 1,967 square foot townhome. The alternative option was the Tiamo model, which was priced at $492,990 for 1,879 square feet. Other than those houses, everything’s sold out.

Countrywide also offered bonuses to whoever would be the final purchasers of their Phase 1. The bonus package included stained hardwood throughout the home excluding the basement stairs, a 5 piece appliance package from the builders standard package, which includes, refrigerator, range, dishwasher, and front loading washer and dryer. Along with the hardwood and appliances, they also provide you with one year free rogers services, VIP package for TV, hi-speed internet and home phone. The last item included in this bonus package is $5000 for you to spend in upgrades at Countrywide home design studio. Compared to Aspen Ridges $10,000 in free upgrades at the design studio, Countrywide seems to offer the better bonus package, but I’m sure if you were to walk into Aspen Ridge as a buyer, they would give you a hook up on the bonus packages.

Phase 2 of Mayfield Village is to be released on Saturday, February 6th, 2016. Phase 2 is still located closer to the Dixie and Countryside intersection, as construction will move north from Dixie towards Mayfield as each phase is released. According to Representatives at Green park, Phase 2 of their homes will be move in ready by March 2017 as construction is set to start March 2016. The closer closing dates are October and November 2016 for the first few finished houses.

We’ve also added a list of example prices for you the viewer to get an idea of how much these houses cost and along with the cost we’ve added some features that are unique between each builder. Since we were only available to get in touch with some builders regarding these factors as phase 1 is sold out, we’ve provided information from the builder who did provide us with the details on their homes.

For example, a 2208 square feet detached single on a 38’ lot from Regal Crest depending on the elevation can run you anywhere from $639,900 to $664,900 and that’s before you add your magic touch through their many options.

A similar home from Greenpark which will come in at around 2,183 square feet for the same 38’ lot size will run you around $693,900, also before your added options.

Aspen Ridge offers their 2,157 square foot model The Abigail on a 38’ foot lot as well for the running price of $699.990. Options of course, not included.
