Beachfront Community Houses for Sale Trends in 2015
Beachfront communities continue to grow in popularity as homeowners look for reliable ways to escape the city and enjoy their summers. Before taking the plunge, you should familiarize yourself with the latest beach house community trends that have redefined the real estate landscape in 2015. West Shore Beach Club offers a wide selection of houses for sale near the pristine Lake Couchiching.
1. The Housing Market Is Booming
The housing market is extremely hot at the moment. Every year, values continue to rise, increasing the return on investment for past homeowners. There has never been a better time to browse your local listings of homes for sale or to look into purchasing a valuable beachfront community property. Vacation properties maintain their value and offer you a reliable vacation destination that can also serve as a source of income if you decide to rent it out.
2. Province Hopping
Whether you are from the west or east coast, buying a beautiful beachfront community home gives you a reason to visit Ontario. The capital province is ripe with beautiful lakes that are more than capable of providing you and your family with an unlimited source of family fun and memories. Our Lake Couchiching community is located minutes from Orillia and a short distance from Toronto, which serves as a great vacation destination in its own right.
3. Work From the Cottage
This may seem like an oxymoron, but modern beachfront communities are livable all year round. For example, our Lake Couchiching community is fully serviced all year round. It is like living in the middle of a city with a cottage atmosphere regardless of the season. The community’s roads are maintained in the winter and sewer and electricity utilities are just like those you would get in the city; that includes phone and internet access. This all comes within a few minutes’ drive to Orillia. If you are looking for a home that you can live, work, and vacation in, a waterfront home may be the perfect fit for you.
4. Major Roadway Access
The thought of driving to your cottage through dark and secluded backroads is enough to scare off some would be cottagers. All of our homes are easily accessible via Highway 400 and 11, two well maintained highways that are functional all throughout the year.
5. U.S. Tourists Driving North
For American travelers, purchasing a home in Canada has become a lot less expensive with the struggling Canadian Dollar. If you live in Michigan, Upstate New York or close to Ontario, you can purchase a home in this region that will serve as a great vacation option. Many Americans are looking for new options as opposed to the popular vacation destinations like Florida, Reno, and the west coast. A quick trip up to Ontario will easily convince you about the beauty of this province and everything it has to offer.
If that isn’t enough to convince you, at the time of this writing, the Canadian Dollar is around 30percent weaker than the American Dollar. Houses for sale in yearlong cottage communities are easy to maintain. You need not worry about vandalism as the communities are inhabited by people through various stages of the year. Traditional cottages were often isolated and on their own, leaving them susceptible to seasonal damage or vandalism.
The Time Is Now
If you are still in doubt but are considering purchasing a home around Lake Couchiching, the time is now. With a booming market and a rise in popularity for vacation homes, there has never been a better time to buy. West Shore Beach Club has worked hard to develop a beachfront community on Lake Couchiching, adjacent to Lake Simcoe, only minutes to Orillia and less than an hour from Toronto. This modern vacation community provides you with easy access to Lake Simcoe, Wasaga Beach, Muskoka, the Horseshoe Valley, and the beautiful scenery of Northern Ontario.
