Spring Cottage Buying & Selling

It’s Spring and the time to Buy or Sell a Cottage property is here!

Spring is here with many Buyers looking at cottages for sale in the Muskoka area and there have already been a number of waterfront sales.  It doesn’t seem to matter if there is still snow on the ground or that the ice may not have gone out, Buyers are anxious to have a cottage for this season.

If you are looking for a Cottage for Sale in Muskoka, I would suggest that you have a Realtor to begin looking for you.  Once a cottage comes on the market it takes at least 24 hours before the general public can view it online.   New listings are available to view by realtors immediately giving the buyer with a Realtor working for them, the opportunity to set up a viewing prior to the general public knowing that it is for sale.   There are also times that your Realtor may know that a listing is coming on the market prior to it be listed, giving their buyer an opportunity to view it before anyone else.  The market is quite active at the moment and there is not much product yet, so that properly priced, desirable cottages are selling quickly.

As a Seller this is definitely the time to list your Cottage For Sale.  There is not much inventory at the moment, especially under a million and  Buyers that didn’t find a cottage last year as well as new Buyers are actively looking for a cottage property that they can start using this season.

The waterfront real estate market had record sales for much of last year and those brisk sales have continued into 2016.
