MarketWATCH Muskoka: Halloween Edition


Icing sugar is sweet. Seeing Muskoka sprinkled white this past weekend was truly a sweet introduction to the coming season.

Sure, the confection has gone in one way. It’s pretty clear, though, that all across cottage country, in its towns and villages, ghouls, goblins and werewolves have been circulating with their eyes on the prize of candies and treats.

In the coming weeks that other confection will return, obscuring the land and waterfront. In the last while there have been a number of properties come to market. If you still have an eye on a property this year, the next few weeks will be your limit if seeing the land is important to your decision.

Take a look at what’s new and what’s changed. Then call us.
