Kawartha Lakes Real Estate Market Conditions

Kawartha Lakes Real Estate Market Place

Kawartha Lakes Real Estate Market Place

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.

Parks Canada to work with stakeholders to identify long term sustainability solutions for the historic canals

OTTAWA, May 14, 2013 /CNW/ – The Honourable Peter Kent, Canada’s Environment Minister and Minister responsible for Parks Canada, today announced that recreational lockage fees along Canada’s historic canals will remain frozen for the next three years at 2008 levels.

“Since the beginning of our consultation process on canal fees, we have been committed to listening and acting in the best interests of the residents who live, work and visit our canals,” said Minister Kent. “We recognize the importance of canals to Canada’s heritage, the tourism industry and the thousands of people who use them each year. That is why following consultations with Government Members of Caucus who live along the canals, I am pleased to announce that Parks Canada will freeze lockage fees for three years.”

“During this time, Parks Canada and I will work with local Members of Parliament, community leaders and the tourism industry to develop and implement an improved operating model to ensure the long term financial sustainability of the canals operations. These long term solutions will need to address all aspects of the canals operations.”

As part of the long-term financial sustainability of the canals operations, Parks Canada is already considering new visitor opportunities that will benefit a broad range of canals users, and create new sources of revenue, all while maintaining support for our tourism operators and industry.

Nogies Creek, Mississagua River, Eels Creek and Jack Creek Watersheds

about the lakes and rivers of the Kawartha Lakes

The Nogies Creek, Mississagua Lake, Eels Creek and Jack Lake Watersheds feed the Trent Severn Waterway

Some of the smaller, but no less important tributaries of the Kawartha Lakes are the Nogies Creek, Mississagua River, Eels Creek and Jack Creek watersheds.

Un-opened road allowance on Bass Lake

The Nogies Creek watershed contains only one reservoir operated by the Trent-Severn Waterway, that of Crystal Lake.  At the headwaters of the Nogies Creek watershed, Crystal Lake is fed by several small tributaries which help to fill the lake during dry springs. Downstream of Crystal Lake, Nogies Creek (formally known as Harvey Brook) flows through both Bass Lake and Big March Lake before entering Pigeon Lake at its north end.

Out of the way spot - on the Mississagua River

Kawartha Highlands Provincial Park – part of the Mississagua Watershed

The Mississagua River watershed is a significant tributary of the Kawatha Lakes and lies between the Nogies Creek watershed to the west and the Eels Creek watershed to the east. With Anstruther Lake flowing into it, Mississauga Lake contributes a substantial volume of water to the Kawartha Lakes.  Nearly 15% of the water retained in the reservoirs comes from Anstruther Lake and Mississaugua Lake.

The Eels Creek and Jack Creek watersheds have very similar characteristics.  With each having a single reservoir within their headwaters, the watercourses behave very much the same throughout the year. The primary difference between the two is the size of Eels Creek compared to Jack Creek.  The Eels Creek watershed has both a large reservoir in its head water and a large catchment area which contributes to its surface water runoff.  For those reasons the Eels Creek watershed will generally generate higher flows.
