‘It has to be seen to be believed and is a perfect playground for families, investors and even those looking to rebuild or renovate.

‘Muskoka is just two hours north of Toronto and is one of the most beautiful places in Ontario and indeed in all of Canada.’

The area is known for attracting celebrities such as Stephen Spielberg, Justin Bieber, Goldie Hawn, Kurt Russel, Tom Hanks, and many others who own properties on one of the three major lakes, including Lake Muskoka, Lake Rosseau, and Lake Joseph.

He said: ‘The cottages themselves vary drastically from modern new build homes to classic traditional style houses that look like something out of a fairytale.’

Haid, who fell in love with the area after moving from Toronto, added: “Property ownership in Muskoka has proven itself well in the past because of the chronically low supply of housing due to properties passed down from generation to generation. have been passed on and many families opt out of the sale of their family home.’

For luxury waterfront properties, prices are down about 25 percent since the market peak in spring 2022, but that was after the staggering average of 100 percent price increases since the start of the pandemic.

The next year should present a great buying opportunity as Muskoka tends to record large capital gains over time.

“The rental market is also an important factor in owning real estate in Muskoka.

‘Rentals and demand are extremely high and many families rent out their cottages when they are not in use.

“As a full-time investment property, you can achieve capitalization rates of up to 10%, depending on the property and area.”
