Are You Looking for Your First Waterfront Cottage?

Buying Your First Cottage!

The first time I meet with first time cottage buyers, they usually have a list of things that want, expect and must have, as well as a dollar amount that they are willing to spend.

Cottage property in Muskoka and Lake of Bays are all different and sometimes it is extremely difficult to find everything a buyer is looking for in their price range.  These are some of the must haves that I usually find buyers require:  South or West exposure, sand beach with no weeds, deep water for swimming and boating, gentle lot, outstanding views, privacy, year round access, winterized cottage…and the list goes on.

After viewing a few properties Buyers come to realize that they may not be able to get everything on their wish list within their budget. At that point they have to sit down and really decide what their most important must haves are for their cottage property.  Even properties over a million dollars may not have everything that a buyer is looking for.

The lot, lake and area you want to be in should be most important to you as a buyer.  The cottage can always be improved over time and down the road you can always upgrade to a larger cottage property if you outgrow the one you have.

Cottage property is a great investment and Buyers can purchase a cottage property in the Muskoka and Lake of Bays area in a variety of price ranges.
