MarketWATCH Muskoka: 17 August 2023


The coming few days will be feeling more like July than August. Summer in these parts has been extended. Yet, if you check the canopy, the trees are not about to be fooled. They are preparing for the big show. A few have jumped the gun and tinges of orange and red can be seen from the roadside.

Take a stroll on a favourite trail. You’ll notice fewer bugs. A sure sign the season is running its course. For us, this is a favourite time of year. Warm days, cool nights and the water’s still warm! Lingering evenings on the dock are more pleasurable.

On the real estate side, listings continue to come to market. In the area we monitor 77 came to market. On the pricing side, properties which have not sold yet are revising their ask. There were 42 reductions this past week. On the sold side, 52 went conditional or pending. Activity is good. Some of the listings are too. Take a look!
