MarketWATCH Muskoka: April 3, 2019

 

Spring. We think of daffodils, crocuses and robins. So far in Muskoka we have robins. This past week saw up to 10cm of snow and, with -10C lows at night, more ice. Bracebridge Falls is a trickle and the river is low pending the onslaught of melt we’ll see in the next 3 weeks or so.

We were called to list vacant land on a Lake Muskoka island. Over 300′ of frontage, sunset views and close to mainland. The picture above was taken while we were walking across the lake to the property. It was a beautiful day!

Despite the snow, we have been busy listing, selling and showing. Each of us has had transactions. We listed a beautiful year round cottage last weekend on the outskirts of Port Carling and sold it in 2 days. Access can be tough. We showed a property on Saturday and it was hard to stay on the crust. Our buyer kept crashing through up to his knees. It was tiring for him. A trooper though!

A beautiful legacy property came to market on Breezy Point over 1100′ of shore for $4.8 million. It has sold firm at almost $4.5 million in a matter of 3 or 4 days!

The message? People are intent. They want a property for the season. If you see something you like, don’t put off walking it. If you do, it may not be there. Sales are happening at all price levels.

Here’s what came to market this week. Let us know if there’s something you like and want to see. We’re ready!
