Buying a Cottage Should be Fun

Summer in Canada can feel very short, it’s here one moment and gone the next. We all try to make the most of the warm, sunny season, and a great way to do that is by purchasing and enjoying a cottage.

Most Canadians have fond memories of cottage life, whether it’s a family cottage or that of a friend. Synonymous with Kawartha Lakes, beautiful waterfront can be found in almost every town. Cottage life is the life around here.

For many there is fear associated with purchasing a second property; “Can I afford it?” Ultimately, that question needs to be answered before you embark on the purchasing journey. However, once the budget is determined, and you can indeed afford to purchase your home away from home, there is no better time than now to own a cottage.

Life is busy, and most of us aren’t able to use our cottages year round. A great way to reap the benefits of owning a cottage is to make it an income property as well. Many families rent out their cottage on weekly or weekend rates, which is a great way to supplement costs of owning a second property. Also, why not let other families enjoy making memories in the place that brings fun, laughter and entertainment to you.

Don’t worry, we’re serious when it comes to negotiating the price, but who says you can’t have a little fun along the way?

At Lighthouse Real Estate we are committed to helping you find your way home – or to the cottage!
