MarketWATCH Muskoka: 19 September 2018
Last week we talked about the fall market and mentioned that properties being listed at this time of year represent good value as sellers want to sell their properties this year.
This week there’s a property coming to market on Kahshe Lake, one of the shortest commutes from the GTA, with great privacy, SW exposure, more than 200′ of frontage on a paved, year round road. It will be listed for $519. Lucy has the details.
The other day we were at the shore at dawn. It was slightly misty as the night had been cool. The lake was like glass. Across the bay, at the point stood a lone maple, brilliant red in the morning light. It was the kind of scene you find in paintings and think it can’t be real.
This weekend is the first of two studio tours this fall. Muskoka artists and artisans have been opening their studios for 40 years. We know folks who have come to cottage country for more than 25 of those years specifically to see what new pieces are in the offing. The tour is a wonderful opportunity to be inspired, find a ‘lifetime’ piece or a few unique trinkets for family and friends.
It’s worth the drive!
Also worth the drive are some of the new listings this week. Take a look at what has come to market and what prices have changed. Your cottage awaits!
And now for the ones that caught our eye this week…
