Why Ontario Cottage Country Is So Popular

It is often considered one of the most beautiful areas in the world, with crystal clear lakes, prime fishing areas, thick and plentiful forests, luxury resorts, and some of the most amazing sunsets you’ll ever witness. It’s the choice of home to several millionaires as well as a summer playground to the rich and famous.  In Ontario, Canada, the area is known as cottage country and it consists of a large area of land that consists of several popular towns such as Muskoka, Peterborough, Bracebridge, Haliburton, Huntsville, Orillia, Minden, and Collingwood.

It is an ideal area to purchase real estate as there are thousands of waterfront cottages, homes, and condos available for those who are interested in residential properties. There are also quite a few commercial properties available in the area. Many people have owned homes and cottages in the region for years and they are passed down from generation to generation. However, there are still many of them for sale on the market. These properties are an excellent investment and they are often rented out for extra income.

One of the most attractive things about cottage country is that it’s almost just as popular in the winter as it is in the summer. While people swim, water-ski and boat on the lakes in the summer, they snowmobile, fish, and play hockey on them during the winter. This is ideal for those who want to purchase real estate with the intention of renting it out. It is also known as one of the best areas in Canada to retire to.

The real estate prices vary greatly in cottage country as cottages are sold as low as about $100,000 and can reach as high as millions of dollars. If you have a price range in mind as well as a specific location , there are hundreds of real estate agents in the area that are more than willing to help you out. You should be able to find something suitable for just about any budget.

It is also possible to by land, such as waterfront properties, to build your own dream home or cottages on. This will also take a little bit of time and research and the help of a qualified real estate agent. There are many websites to help you in your search. These sites will give full details of the properties and buildings that are for sale and generally come with a series of photographs and contact information for the seller. While some property and homes are sold privately, you will find that most of them involve real estate companies.

The options are endless in cottage country because of the size of land it encompasses. If you do decide to look for residential or commercial property in the area, it’s a good idea to do some homework so you know what to expect when it comes to pricing. If you’re unfamiliar with the area, you may want to enlist some professional help. If you decide on using a real estate agent, it’s recommended to ask for some referrals or testimonials as it’s important you get a good agent to help you out.

To streamline and minimize blog maintenance, I will be discontinuing maintaining the realestateexpedition.com website (however, I will still hold the domain). I will gradually move all articles from this site to A Dawn Journal. This article originally published on the above website on Jan 17, 2009.
