MarketWATCH Muskoka: 6 September 2017
If you listen to the news, you’d think summer is over. Not so. We are embarking on what many people think is the finest part of the season in Muskoka. September.With it comes warm, sunny days, cool nights, no bugs and a peacefulness on the water that is hard to find in high season. The water’s still warm, swimming’s a pleasure and so is just sitting on the dock, enjoying nature. September enhances Muskoka as leaves turn to their golden and rusty hues. Somehow the sky seems bluer, it’s definitely clearer and the reflection of the forest in the lake is brighter. September glows!
September also brings the Fall Studio Tour as well as a collection of properties waiting for new owners. Sadly, for some families, this September is the ending of the last summer at the lake. Their decision to leave makes room for new owners and traditions, new memories and laughter to blend with the echoes of the long held Canadian tradition of cottaging.
Over the next couple of weeks we will see opportunities of new properties coming to market and price changes on those that have yet to sell. September is a great time to transact, whether you are sadly leaving or excited about beginning new family memories.
Take a look at what has changed in the last week…
