Ready to buy Muskoka or Lake of Bays property?

There are many things to consider which are quite different from those you would consider when purchasing a home in the city.  The Parker Team, experienced, licensed realtors,  can help you navigate the landscape of purchasing your Muskoka home or cottage.  Discover the Parker Team difference.

First, let me congratulate you on your decision to purchase a home or cottage in Muskoka. You will have questions, lots of them – we are here to help!

Before we hit the road to view your prospective properties there are a couple of things you should consider:

  • What area would you like to focus your search on?  Do you have one in mind? Do you have any travel restrictions?
  • Your needs and wants- have a list, share it with us. As we are local realtors who know the area, some properties may not be what they seem online. Let us help you make the best use of your time by assisting you in your property search. Further by sharing your specific needs and wants, we will be on the look out for properties that you should see- even if that means we need to walk you through it via Face Time!
  • Understand the current market, how will it impact your purchase? – We can help you with that.
  • Consider your financing. Do you need a mortgage?  If you do, talk to us, often Muskoka based Mortgage Brokers have a better understanding the intricacies of local properties.

Now the fun part – Looking at Muskoka and Lake of Bays property for sale and securing it!

While searching for Muskoka or Lake of Bays property for sale, you can expect to hear regularly from the Parker Team.  We will email you new properties matching your criteria as they come to market, and we will call when we see or hear of  something extra special.

Ask us for our checklist of things to consider when viewing each property – How is the property heated? What type of water supply does it have? How close to town are you? If you’re looking for waterfront- What type of shoreline does it have? How big is the lake? Is it motor restricted? Is the waterfront easily accessed by those who will be using the property?  And so much more…..

Once you are happily settled into your new home or cottage, the relationship doesn’t end.  We love to hear about your new property, any changes you have made and of course how much you are enjoying it!
