Happy New Year from Muskoka Jack

Happy New Year from Muskoka Jack

A heart-filled Bula Vinaka to you!  Muskoka Jack here wishing you a happy, healthy and prosperous New Year from the Fiji island of Viti  Levu.  Thoroughly enjoying my time here I look forward to returning home to Lake Rosseau in early April.  I remain connected from abroad, keeping up-to-date with the Muskoka Waterfront Real Estate Market.  While away I continue to search for properties of interest to you as well as maintain my knowledge of the current selling market.

To date this year there are not many Muskoka waterfront properties for sale however I expect to see unsold past listings as well as new listings come to market in the near future.  Buyers will be looking to acquire their dream cottage property in order to enjoy the lake lifestyle in time for spring and summer 2016. In fact, many buyers start their internet search in January and February.  To list your property for sale in these next few months makes sense provided we have spring, summer or fall pictures depicting the landscape of your property and that the property is accessible for showings. 

2015 once again saw an increase in Muskoka real estate brokerages and agents; those who are brand new to the business and those transferring from other regions including those coming from Northern Muskoka to Central and Southern Muskoka; more specifically the big three Lakes Muskoka, Rosseau and Joseph.  There will be another brokerage opening its doors this spring in Port Carling with new and transferring agents.  This being said it has been, is now and always will be my pledge to continue to represent your best interests above my own through my passion, 21+ years of experience and my in depth knowledge of area properties, the market, my integrity and discretion.  My repertoire includes the ability to competently conduct real estate transactions on your behalf with the utmost of confidentiality since I understand your desire and need as highly successful individuals to respect your privacy.  Enough about all of this.  You know I love my career and take pride in providing you with only the highest quality real estate services.

2015 has been my second year with the luxury boutique brokerage Chestnut Park, Port CarlingJack Janssen and Chestnut Park Realty Port Carling, Muskoka, Ontario  
since transferring from my previous brokerage of 19+ years. Looking back I know this was the right decision, one that has been confirmed by my clients who recognize Chestnut Park as the high end, well respected brokerage it is with a proven track record of being number 1 in listings and sales of waterfront recreational properties in Muskoka.

Vinaka Vaka Levu (many sincere thanks!) for allowing me the privilege of being your Realtor and for your many referrals. I look forward to seeing you in Muskoka this Spring!
