Homes in Mississauga, Hamilton and Milton make list of most viewed properties in 2022

A West Mountain chateau-style home in Hamilton, a caboose (yes, a caboose) in Milton and a Port Credit townhouse in Mississauga all attracted a lot of attention in 2022

An unassuming family home in Bowmanville also turned heads

Real estate website and brokerage Zoocasa recently unveiled its list of the top 10 most viewed listings of 2022, with homes in Calgary, Toronto, Mississauga, Hamilton, Milton, Clarington, Ottawa and Owen Sound making the cut. 

“The real estate market this year has been unprecedented,” the blog reads, adding that the once red-hot market has cooled a little due to seven overnight lending rate increases by The Bank of Canada.

With borrowing costs rising, the slight dip in prices hasn’t driven sales the way one might expect. In fact, Zoocasa points out that listings are sitting on the market longer than usual, with some cities seeing more significant impacts than others.

But while the market has been unpredictable, people still love to look at listings online. 

Here’s a look at the homes in Mississauga, Hamilton and Milton that drew eyeballs in 2022:

This three-bedroom, four-bathroom Port Credit townhouse boasts a “magazine-like finish throughout.” Recently renovated, the home boasts a “bright designer kitchen,” a formal dining room, floor-to-ceiling windows, a luxurious six-piece bathroom with heated floors and a finished basement with a fireplace. 

While the listing has been terminated, it was initially put on the market for $2,788,000.

This West Mountain house boasts an “elegant chateau-style” aesthetic, according to Zoocasa. The home features three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms and a gourmet kitchen with a breakfast bar and granite countertops. The house also offers crown moulding, California shutters and a primary bedroom with a walk-in closet and spa-like ensuite bathroom.  

The listing is no longer active, but the house was initially priced at $784,900.

By far the most unique residence on the list, the fully restored 1912 CN wooden caboose sold for $45,000 earlier this year. According to Zoocasa, the windows, doors, shingling, and insulation were replaced in 2009. The caboose boasts leather benches, a built-in stereo system and speakers, a bar fridge and sink, and a wooden deck.
