Sometimes you have to look back and remember the great times, relaxing by the lake, enjoying the company of family, listening to the sound of the waves lapping at the rocks on the shore.  The lonesome call of loons in the morning and evening.  Then get back to work so you can do it again next year!!

The New Year has arrived and Christmas 2009 has become a not quite faded  memory.  With no snow in sight for Christmas here in Oakville,  our family decided to head north to Parry Sound, Ontario to find some white stuff.

The Parry Sound real estate market has exceeded most people's expectations, and although total unit sales are down from the previous year, the downturn is not as pronounced as in other cottage markets (Muskoka and Haliburton, for example). For people looking to sell their Parry Sound area home or cottage, proper pricing is more important than ever.  While we have yet to see enough sales to accurately measure a trend, prices are definitely softening and I feel this will continue for at least the next six months. As many economists are predicting mortgage rates to remain stable or edge lower, we are seeing some of the best buying opportunities in years. Listing inventories remain higher than normal giving buyers plenty of inventory to choose from. Overall, the situation the U.S. housing m...
