Cottage Country Could Be Your New Neighbourhood!

Motivated by the high cost of properties in urban centres, many people are opting to move into cottage country for year-round living.


According to Tess Kalinowski, Real Estate Reporter for the Toronto Star, “While vacation properties have soared in price in recent years along with Toronto real estate, some resort areas within a two-hour drive of Toronto remain relatively affordable.”


Interestingly enough, 91% of sales of recreational properties throughout Canada are attributed to Baby Boomers. This has jumped from 55% one year ago. People are selling their equity-rich homes in the city and buying recreational properties with the intent of retiring in comfort away from the city.


Some are hanging on to their properties in the city, renting them out and buying retirement properties in cottage country.


Either way, the equity the Boomers have amassed in their homes is changing their retirement possibilities for the better.


There’s a great opportunity for people to buy a relatively cheap lot in Cottage Country and build their dream home on it.
