MarketWATCH Muskoka 2 September 2020
Warm days, cool nights, bonfires, walks in the woods, calm waters and no bugs. What’s that called? September!
One of the nicest months of the year (this writer’s favourite), September brings golden hues, great boating and a relaxed vibe not found in high season. This year might be a little different with more people working in place. But it won’t stop the misty mornings and sparkling afternoons with sunlight dancing on the water.
What does September mean to buyers and sellers? One more opportunity. In the last week we’ve had more than 80 properties come to market and more than 20 price reductions. This is the time of year when some long time cottagers leave the lake for the last time, bringing to market properties which have been held for decades. In other cases, some properties take price reductions as sellers decide not to own over the winter.
September can be busy if you’re buying or selling. If you’re serious and want to know what’s happening. Let us know! We can give you a link to see what’s going on everyday. Talking about links, check the links below to see what’s come to market or the price changes in your price range. There’s lots going on!
