Published on March 15th, 2019

Are you thinking about buying a home in the Collingwood, Blue Mountains, Thornbury, Wasaga Beach, Grey Highlands, Clearview, or Meaford area?

The team at Locations North have put together a list of questions and considerations to think about when buying a home in Southern Georgian Bay.

What are you looking for in a new principal residence?

There are many reasons to move communities. A new job, a new family, or a change of scenery. Perhaps your current home is too small, or too old. Or maybe you’ve decided to sell your current home at a profit and buy your dream home in your dream location.

If you’re thinking about a new home, some important questions to ask yourself include:

  • What size of home are you looking for?
  • How many bedrooms and bathrooms do you want?
  • What size of property do you want?
  • Do you want to be in town or rural?
  • Are you looking for space for a hobby farm, a she shed, or a pool?
  • Do you want to be close to the water?
  • Are you interested in being close to nature and outdoor activities?
  • What are your goals with the property?

Are you looking for a second home?

The Southern Georgian Bay area is a wonderful area to live full-time or seasonally. Offering a wide variety of attractions and activities, the area continues to welcome an increasing number of GTA-area expats.

If you’re looking for a second home, some important questions to ask yourself include:

  • Are you looking for a place to enjoy the winter, the summer, or both?
  • Do you just want a vacation home where you can escape for a week or two a year?
  • Do you want a investment property that you can rent out for extra income?
  • What sort of lifestyle do you want to experience at your second home?
  • Do you have children or family who will be living in the home?
  • Are you looking for a place to retire?

Whatever your answers may be, you want to be sure that you are setting future goals appropriately so that you will be happy in your new home. It’s wise to start the conversation early with your family and friends, so you can all get on the same page.
