In the Magnetawan area we saw slightly slower cottage sales compared to last year’s record setting summer. Website traffic is up substantially for August and the beginning of September which is always a good sign with waterfront properties still being the number 1 search. You can now search the MLS by lake name on our site which is becoming a very popular feature. Ahmic, Cecebe,Whitestone and Manitouwabing lakes are a popular search in the Parry Sound area. Fairy Lake, Lake Joseph, Mary Lake, Lake Rosseau and Doe Lake are frequently sought after in the Muskoka Region.
