Are You Searching For A Cottage?

436 Fralicks Beach Water ImageIf you are searching for an affordable Cottage or Waterfront Lifestyle, now is the time to get going. More and more Waterfront properties are hitting the market and providing more options for Buyers.

One Area to look is around Port Perry, Seagrave, Little Britain and Lindsay. These areas are close to Toronto and provide less traffic than some of the more popular cottage destinations. The 407 Extension will provide more travel options and make for more time at the cottage and less time in the car.

Take For Example a new listing just outside of Port Perry that provides a western exposure for Beautiful sunsets, shallow water access and an entrance to the Trent Severn Waterway. Property is listed for just over $300,000 and can be used as a residence or cottage.  Lake Scugog provides for great fishing both winter and summer and you are only 40 mins north of Whitby or Oshawa and 1.5 Hours east of Toronto.2012-09-24 11.20.55

I can carefully guide you through the process of acquiring a second property or help you create a lifestyle that allows to achieve both a home and cottage combined into 1. I will put you in touch with Lenders, Home Inspectors and Real Estate Lawyers  that will help you through the process. If you are looking for a Cottage Property or Waterfront Lifestyle please give me a call and we can start preparing and outlining your needs and exactly what you are looking for and you can start enjoying the cottage life before the end of this summer.

Future Growth for Port Perry

Scugog Preparing for Port Perry’s Growth!

Old Mill Pot Perry

The Port Perry Star has reported that according to the Mayor, Chuck Mercier, the Scugog area, including the Historic town of Port Perry is set to grow by about

6,000 residents. Which means roughly 1,500 single family residents if you use the formula of an average of 4 people per home. The article also mentions that the growth may not be focused entirely on single family residential as a NEW Hotel and NEW condo development is proposed to be constructed on Scugog Island. There is also a state of the art Bio Gas Plant that is to be added in the town of Blackstock (which is just east of Port Perry).

The article has quoted the mayor who states “We need growth, we need a balance and it’s well underway.

This means there will be more of a tax base in the area and that will ultimately lead to the TAX burden being lifted from the current pool of tax payers in the area. Many residents have been asking for years for expansion to alleviate the ever increasing property taxes.

The article also stated that the by the end of 2013 Scugog Township should be close to being debt free!!

Port Perry and area remain a tourist destination and a very desirable place to live and raise a family.  Over the years there has been a large transformation of the 273demographics with more younger families moving o the area and seniors wanting to stay. The local Port Perry Hospital provides a sense of security for residents knowing there is adequate medical care close by and with Lakeridge health network available in Oshawa Whitby and Bowmanville quality healthcare is close by. Other great draws and and fantastic amenities include:

  • Newly Revitalized Waterfront
  • Lakeside Walking Trails
  • New Public Library
  • New Walmart and other Shopping choices
  • Many New Restaurants

Port Perry and surrounding communities provide a great opportunity for families looking to make a move from some of the busier urban destinations around the GTA. The

Canterbury Commons

future appears to be prosperous and very optimistic when you include all of the growth in and around Port Perry and the soon to be completed 407 which bring portions of the GTA within 30 – 40 mins of Port Perry.

We are both self employed and have enjoyed our involvement with our community, local business and our children’s school, something that we felt we were missing during our time in Toronto.
