Blue Canoe – Coming to a shoreline near you!

Blue Canoe – Coming to a shoreline near you!

Bobcaygeon Homes for sale - Bobcaygeon Real Estate

Sturgeon Lake Bobcaygeon

Landowners along the shorelines of lakes within the City of Kawartha Lakes should keep an eye on the waters for the Blue Canoe team again this year, out for our third season!

Stewardship staff are traveling by canoe from dock to dock when weather permits, or door to door by foot, and attending local events and lake association meetings. They will be out on Balsam, Cameron, Pigeon, and Sturgeon lakes again this year, along with three new lakes that include Canal, Four Mile, and Mitchell lakes.

As the Blue Canoe team paddles across the Kawartha Lakes they are taking an important message; that you can protect water quality and contribute to the long-term health of your lake by following some easy property maintenance practices. During the visit, they will help you identify opportunities for preventing shoreline erosion, limiting aquatic weed and blue-green algae growth in the water, deterring Canada geese, and reducing E.coli in the nearshore water, among other issues you may be experiencing. They will also offer information about lake management planning.

“Meeting with our team is an opportunity to talk about the issues that are important to you, and get information on what you can do on your own property to help protect the lake!”

Since the launch of the program in 2012, the Blue Canoe Program has connected with more than 2,500 shoreline residents and cottagers in the Kawarthas through property visits, dock talks, and community events. This summer, they will visit many more, while following up with some of the people contacted during the previous seasons to provide further suggestions and technical support where needed.

To find out where the Blue Canoe is going next, go to the calendar at Approximate dates and locations are posted two weeks ahead of time. If the timing is not convenient, an appointment can be made by contacting Kawartha Conservation at 705.328.2271 ext. 238 or

Why the Kawartha Lakes Real Estate market heats up as the weather cools.

No one wants summer to end but the up side is that the busy fall Kawartha Lakes real estate market heats up.

July and August are busy in the Kawartha Lakes with visitors from all over the world making the Kawartha Lakes their holiday destination. With the hectic nature of unplanned summer activities and even planned activities, the search for real estate gets put on the back burner in favour of family fun.

All that is about to change: Every year, on the day after Labour Day, the Kawartha Lakes real-estate market explodes like clockwork. Home Buyers revisit the Kawartha Lakes to view the communities at a more relaxed pace. The fall colours, cooler temperatures and relaxed pace of life enjoyed by Kawartha Lakes Residents can be seen and enjoyed by those considering retiring to the Kawartha Lakes.

The fall boom is very much a chicken-egg situation: Buyers don’t get down to business until the listings are in abundance, but sellers don’t list their properties until the buyers start looking.

So what does this mean for the fall market? There’s more choice, for one. Buyers could come across multiple suitable properties that satisfy their search criteria. In some instances “deals” can be found as properties that have not been picked up in-season are reduced in the quest to find a buyer. Cottage owners may have decided to use the cottage for one last summer and enter the fall market new and fresh. Prepare to be in a competitive market place for these first time listed family gems. Fall price reductions on older inventory can spark competition from the many potential buyers that saw the property over the summer but did not feel it was priced competitively at the time.

You’d be naive to think that when a Kawartha Lakes home or cottage within your price range hits the market, that you’re the only person who’s going to stumble on the deal and submit an offer. By readying yourself for a competitive market now, you won’t be disappointed later.

Doing your property homework in advance and learning about the Kawartha Lakes is the first step towards making your cottage or retirement dreams come true. Many of my past clients began exploring the villages and towns in the area with day trips to the area. Checking out the neighbourhoods like Victoria Place and Port 32. Making note of the styles of homes you like, the locations of parks and points of interest, proximity to retail, and other important family and health considerations is essential to making an informed decision.

Market predictions for the fall: The fall will be the same as this past spring—we’ll see competition for quality family homes, and waterfront properties. I expect that prices will continue to rise. I wish climbing costs weren’t the case, but they will be as long as the Kawartha Lakes continues to be a preferred retirement and recreational area with-in easy reach of the GTA..

The fall market moves quickly. We get two harried months in September and October before the market slows in November, then dies out almost completely in December.

Finding your ideal retirement or recreational property in the Kawartha Lakes is made easier when you work with a local Realtor who knows the area and knows the market place and trends. This requires the commitment of both the buyer and the buyer’s agent. Finding the perfect Kawartha Lakes home or recreational property is a huge commitment, if you plan on spending 10 to 15 years or longer in the property you buy, then choosing the right buyer’s agent is the place to start.
