Living in Canada, we know it is bound to happen, the glorious, warm, sunny days must come to an end… but not yet. I hope that you are making the most out of these last few summer weeks.
If there is something I have learned is that time does not stop or slow down, and all we can do is make every moment count.
We know this year has been like no other, and that includes the real estate market in our area.
There is a huge demand for properties in South Georgian Bay, Grey Bruce and Muskoka, so this may be the right time for anyone who is considering selling or buying . Please make sure to check the Market Stats Report below.
Soon we will be talking about the first snowfall but until then, may you seize the day and enjoy the last bit of Summer.
Also, please remember that some children are returning to school this month, so please make sure you slow down when driving near schools and family neighbourhoods.
Golfing Like a Pro
Golfers of all skill levels can still take advantage of the weather and find courses in the Grey, Bruce and Simcoe Counties. Over 80 courses to choose from, some with spectacular views, others with an incredible 19th hole and best of all they are closer to home!
Watch Crusoe the Dachshund and his little brother Oakley show us how it’s done.
A Real Estate Company that Gives Back
There are two organizations near and dear to our hearts, Special Olympics and the Georgian Triangle Humane Society (GTHS).
We proudly donate a portion of our income from real estate sales to both organizations.
As you probably know, Special Olympics has impacted the lives of its athletes in profound ways, most notably in building self confidence, friendships and self-esteem.
The GTHS is a non-profit charity that operates an animal center serving the south Georgian Bay region by providing shelter for homeless animals and adopting them to caring families.
And remember… Your Referrals Help Continue the Life Changing Work by Special Olympics and The GTHS! We are on a quest to raise $25,000 for these organizations!
This is where you come in… If you or anyone you know is considering making a move, we would like to offer them a FREE No Obligation to Sell Consultation to discuss just how they can make their move, get what they want and do it with the least hassle.
Simply call me direct at 705-441-5800 or forward my number on.
The trend continues in this sellers market with people still looking to buy in the area, but with a lack of inventory properties are being sold rather quick.
CREA is still working on providing us with full stats as they are looking at 21 boards that have now merged their data into one central location. As soon as we get the detailed report for the Southern Georgian Bay Western District, which covers Wasaga Beach to Meaford, we will send them in a separate email to you.
In the meantime I am sharing with you some of the general stats from the Southern Georgian Bay Association of REALTORS
For the Southern Georgian Bay area sales are up +73.8% for the month of August 2020 over the same month last year, and down -3.9% compared to July 2020.
Average price is up +33.3% to $666,849 for the month of August. New Listings are down -8.9%
If you would like to know what does all of this mean to you as you are considering selling or buying, simply give me a call or send me an email and I’ll be happy to help. There is no cost or obligation on your part to have an initial meeting and go over what is important to you, what are your needs and wants. As everyone’s situation is different, it would be my pleasure to offer you my expertise and advice.
