Burks Falls Real Estate


The Burk's Falls real estate market has been very strong this summer with many properties selling soon after they are listed. Cottages and waterfront in particular have been in high demand, particularly in the $300,000 to $600,000 price range. Inventory of quality listing is very low and with the demand being so strong itit has turned into a Buyers market. Homes under $300,000 not on the water are also being purchased in record numbers. With many people wanting to retire to the Muskoka and Parry Sound area, the demagraphics are now dictating that the most popular properrties have the same basic characteristics.

1. Minimal steps to the lakefront

As we age the steps just seem to get harder and harder so as a rule folks are looking for less than 20 steps to get to the lake. This can tend to be a problem on some lakes that tend to have more elevation but it's an important point. The most popular lakes around the town are Doe Lake ( Big and Little ), Horn Lake and Three Mile Lake.

2. Year round access

With retirement being just around the corner, people are leaning towards a property they can use as a cottage for now and retire to in a few years. with this in mind, having year round access is much more important then when they were younger as it will eventually become their retirement home.

3. Access to health care

Proximaty to doctors is yet another consideration for this age group. The Burk's Falls area is just north of Huntsville Ontario which boasts a great hospital with a good emergency room open 24 hours a day 7 days a week. 

The following is a list of current cottages and homes for sale in the Burk's Falls region.
