The summer smiles, the summer knows… so goes the song. In these parts we might say, Muskoka smiles, Muskoka knows. The mystique of loon calls, exposed granite shores and whispering pines are special enough. But when the burble of a woody sliding by breaks the soundscape, Muskoka smiles. For more than 120 years inboard motors [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: 23 June 2022 Summer steamed in and made itself comfortable, breaking a few records as it did so. Along the way, it effectively diminished the mosquito population. Unexpectedly, summer’s first weekend may be without the ‘Muskoka wave’, a by product of swatting the pesky critters away. Once again, people are congregating, enjoying sights [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: 16 June 2022 Summer’s languid pace has already come to cottage country. Dock time is approaching full swing. As we head towards the official beginning of summer and the longest day of the year, sunset is firmly in the northwest. Water temps are not yet risen to spending much more than a quick [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: 9 June 2022 Turn, turn, turn… to everything there is a season. This is our 20th year selling Muskoka. We’ve mapped cycles of waterfront sales, watched waterfront intently and made prognostications over the years. Analysis is part of who we are. We have to know the market. We started relating cottage activity to [...]

June strolls in and kicks back. Days are long and dock time is upon us. For some, early morning is best. Calm waters. Birds doing their bird things. If you’re lucky, a loon will be laughing or a merganser will glide by with its fleet of little ones paddling like mad to keep up. Shore [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: 26 May 2022 Last week we talked about ticking boxes… making sure the property is right and the compromises it represents are acceptable. In some ways it’s easy dealing with the intellectual exercise of choosing. More and more we’re finding people doing their research online and making their choices without actually seeing the [...]

Tick all the 5 boxes and we call that A class land. 5 boxes? What are they? Whether we’re speaking with sellers or buyers, it’s important they understand it’s the things that cannot be changed that matter most when selling or buying. The 5 boxes of waterfront property are (in no particular order) view, nature [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: 12 May 2022 Trillium. Our Provincial flower. Its 3 pointed bloom is easily recognized by graphic representation on official documents of Ontario; Driver’s Licenses and Health Cards. We see the flower almost every day throughout the year. And yet, as it is now, with hardwood bushes being full of them carpeting the forest [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: May 6, 2022 There are times during the off season when passing through Port Carling has to be done with care. It’s deer territory. In fact, on one occasion we counted 11 beauties congregated on Medora Street near Turtle Jack’s in the winter. They force you to ‘drive slow’. Yesterday, coming into town [...]

MarketWATCH Muskoka: 29 April 2022 The day broke hard with snow whipping sharp from the North. End of April? Apparently not - at least for the morning. As morning skated into afternoon, sun broke through and white patches gave way to green. North wind did not let up. Standing on the dock, leaning against the [...]
