2017 Muskoka Cottage Season

This is the time of year when many of my clients - buyers and sellers start calling. They are tired of winter weather, shoveling snow and yearn for long, sunny summer days on the Lakes of Muskoka.

While summer is still a few months away, this is the time of year to consider your wants and needs in regards to a Muskoka cottage property. Sellers are in touch with me to discuss last years’ market conditions and predictions for the upcoming selling season. We are gathering the details necessary to complete a professional listing with all the information a purchaser will want to see. Surveys, legal documents, tax information plus setting up a date for staging and a professional photographer to snap high quality photos and video. And much more. A lot goes into a creating a properly detailed listing and as you know, I’m an organized, detail oriented guy whose pet peeve is missing info and poor quality pictures on listings.  I’ll stop there.

My buyers, old and new, are also contacting me, relishing in the thought that this may be the year we find them the perfect cottage property. As some of you know, it can take years to fall in love and purchase one of life’s greatest treasures. A place where family and friends will congregate and make memories for years to come.

Sellers. If you are considering selling, now is a great time to contact me. I can get started on your listing and make the necessary arrangements to ensure you a smooth and highly efficient process.

Buyers. Because high end cottage real estate has been my focus for the last 22 years I can assure you I am aware of what is available and what is coming to market, be it online or not. I will be personally touching base with you to determine if your wants and needs are the same as last year or if there have been new developments in your life which could alter your criteria.

 As always, whether you are selling or buying, your best interests are my priority. If you know of anyone who is in the market to sell or purchase, please pass along my contact information to them.

You know I’m not one to toot my own horn but what I will tell you is that Chestnut Park will be posting the awards for their top producers in this weeks Globe and Mail. Wednesday, February 22nd. Just quickly, I will tell you that I achieved 2nd place for 2016 for outstanding sales performance in the Muskoka, Lake of Bays/Huntsville, Haliburton, Southern Georgian Bay/Grey Bruce/Owen Sound/Wiarton and Prince Edward County areas.

There are approximately 100 agents selling in this area and it is because of my dedication and experience, as well as your referrals, that has placed me in this top position. Before I moved to Chestnut Park I attained similar designation with Royal LePage. I am both humbled and appreciative and continue to be motivated to do my best for my clients. Company regognition is nice but my greatest reward is your satisfaction. 

Many thanks for your continued loyalty and faith in my ability. I am proud to represent you in one of life’s biggest decisions. Now. Let the Muskoka cottage season begin! Soon, we hope!
