As winter passes quickly, we at Lake District Realty are busy designing and building our unique tradeshow booth which will be ready for the Ottawa Cottage Show from April 09 – April 11 at Lansdowne Park. We hope that Ottawa will come out to meet us and get the scoop on the 2010 cottage market. Affordable cottages and wilderness waterfront only 1 – 1.5 hours west of Ottawa’s door step.

By all indications, we should have a wonderful selection of family cottages, waterfront lots and year-round waterfront homes. In March, we will commence the task of meeting owners, evaluating their properties and preparing the listings for the April 01 start date. We will bring many of these listings to the tradeshow so if you are a waterfront owner contemplating selling, a phone call now is in order to book a marketing team visit and get listed in time for the cottage show.

If you’re contemplating buying, we will be on deck to answer questions about the Lake District and specific buying questions. We will have financing details and pertinent handouts defining the cottage country, the lakes and all the recreational opportunities. This region offers great swimming, boating, fishing, ATVing, birdwatching, hiking and the list goes on.. 5,000 lakes and 5,000 opportunities.

The Edge magazine has forecast the interest rates will remain low in 2010 but will rise in 2011….When is the time to buy?....When purchase prices are reasonable and interest rates are low…that is this year. If you purchase before July, the blended HST will be avoided.

If you have filled out a property profile request on our website, please be sure to update it if you have any changes in your requirements. Spring is closer than you think!

See you at the Ottawa Cottage Show!
