By |2020-05-11T16:30:19+00:00May 12th, 2020|Market Watch|0 Comments

Carefully, oh so carefully, we have been working. In the past couple of weeks we've had 5 offers accepted. Two of our listings have sold and we have successfully negotiated deals for 3 buyers. Real estate in the time of COVID is different, but it's still active. We've also had enquiries from people who did [...]

  Although we've been quiet for a while, Muskoka, Haliburton and Parry Sound are still here! Trees are budding, spring flowers have been blooming in gardens and yesterday we saw dogtooth violets in the bush. It won't be long before was see a carpet of trilliums! This year ice went out early, by about a [...]

Photocredit: @alexander_briere COVID 19 is having an effect on how we operate in a number of ways. Today grocery outlets in Muskoka instituted a much more regimented and controlled way of negotiating the store. Probably the same where you live too. There are barriers between customers and check out staff to prevent droplets from migrating. [...]

MarketWATCHMuskoka: 29 February 2020 March is coming in and we've had a good taste of winter. Muskoka's Festivals of Winter have pretty much run their course. Not like the GTA or Golden Horseshoe, we really have snow here. Someone came up the other day to look at property in sneakers. It doesn't work so well [...]

Seasons come and seasons go. For some the arrival of snow and ice is a blessing. Snow machines, skiing and skating are favourite winter pastimes. The excitement of new snow for kids 'from one to ninety-two' heralds a season of another sort. December celebrations of Hanukkah, Kwanzaa and Christmas make this time of year lively [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: November edition

Photo Credit: Timothy Joseph Elzinga of North Bay MarketWATCH Muskoka: November 2019 Ice making. Unusual for this time of year, however Mother Nature has thrown us a curve. All across cottage country we see vestiges of winter. Normally we think of vestiges as 'leavings' but in this case these leavings are signs of things yet [...]

This has been the year for celebrating a little red berry. From the perspective of harvest, there have been better years. Celebrating? Never better! Great weather and a wonderful turn out for Cranberry Festival in Bala. The village was hopping, fall colours were peaking, days were sunny and the bogs were glorious. This year's Cranfest [...]

Season of mellow fruitfulness. In these parts a few tomatoes still cling to the vine, pumpkins mound yellow in the garden and, as you saw last week, cranberries glow red in the bog. Fall colours are at their peak and fall fruits are lush and plump. Talking about plump, you should see turkeys in Muskoka! [...]

Cranberries. Tis the season of colour. There's a lot going on in Muskoka right now. Artists have opened their doors for their Studio Tour (part deux), the forest is flashing red and gold and cranberries are punctuating it all with their tart brilliance. Tart? That depends. Cranberry butter tarts are tarts but not tart. Cranberry [...]
