Quinte, On. real estate agent: Ontario: Frankford

My First Waterfront of the Year

One of the best things about being a real estate agent in the Quinte area is getting to drive around the area showing properties. We have some really nice areas and some really nice properties that are a bargain compared to other areas of the province.

I have developed a soft spot for waterfront cottages and recreational properties. There's nothing better than showing these places to people from the bigger cities like Ottawa or Toronto. Many of them have already looked for similar properties in the Muskokas, and are very pleased when they find that their dollar can stretch a whole lot further in Prince Edward County or along the Trent river and it's many lakes and tributaries.

My first waterfront deal of the year firmed up last week, and it was a beauty. This 2 bedroom cottage was listed for $185,000, and my buyer managed to get it for a little bit under list price. It has everything that a cottage owner would want, it's not a rickety old shack, it's a fully upgraded year round cottage, just 5 minutes away from the quiet village of Glen Ross.

The Quinte area and Prince Edward County have a lot of lakes, streams and rivers, and I spend a lot of my time showing them off to people who are interested in buying a place that their family can enjoy for years to come. It's a lot of fun finding these people the right place at the right price. It's actually a lot more fun when we have looked at a few places and have calculated that they can purchase a lot more cottage than they originally thought they could afford.

Fishermen, especially, love the Trent river. It has some of the best fresh water fishing in all of Canada. There's lots of swimming and boating also, but it's usually the fishing folk who have that gleam in their eye when they are staring at the water.

If you are looking for cottages in Southern Ontario this summer, why not consider the Quinte or Prince Edward County areas, we have a whack of waterfront listings, a lot of them are still under the $200,000 mark.

Just pick up the phone, give me a call and I will be very happy to show you around. I bet you won't be able to leave without buying something.

Is Spelling Really That Important?
