Parry Sound Real Estate

Parry Sound Cottages for Sale


The Parry Sound Real Estate Market continues to be very tight going into the fall. Inventory of cottages in the $400,000 to $ 800,000 range are in very short supply along with quality homes under $ 300,000. Demand outstripped supply for waterfront properties through most of the summer making it a clear seller market. Prices edged up slightly and the number of days on the market fell. We noticed substantial increases in our website traffic of people looking on many of the larger lakes like Little Whitefish, Big Whitefish, Ahmic, Otter Lake and Lake Joseph all of which are covered by the Parry Sound real estate board.The following is a list showing the number of cottages for sale currently, the sales volume and the highest price paid on that waterway. Total listings on the Parry Sound real estate MLS is over 250
