A lot Of Nice Things to Say
Yes the press is talking about Shelter Cove
and all the unique lifestyle that it offers.
What they are saying is...
Shelter Cove is priced better
than virtually any other home and cottage market and more.
Boomer demand has forced starting prices for three-bedroom waterfront retreats to as high as $1 million in British Columbia's Whistler and Salt Spring Island areas. The most expensive recreational property market in Ontario and Atlantic Canada is the Bala-Port Carling area of Muskoka, where a waterfront cottage with three bedrooms starts at $500,000, the study found.
Port Dover is also facing a price surge thanks not just to cottage sales, but to a growing bedroom community of residents who commute to the Brantford and Hamilton areas, [Brian Holden] says. The cottage market in Port Dover is "very slim," he says, although the average price for a basic waterfront property is lower than in other spots at about $300,000.
The area has far more seasonal cottages, he says, and waterfront properties can be found for around $250,000. If you can settle for a cottage within walking distance of the water, prices drop dramatically. A non-waterfront property could be had for between $150,000 to $200,000, [Sandra DeSerranno] said.
