Collingwood is a very unique town, it sits on Georgian Bay, about 1-3/4hrs from Toronto. It’s origins are in shipping being a major train station & shipping port in the 1800s. Since then Collingwood and the surrounding towns of The Blue Mountains, Thornbury and Wasaga Beach have become a world wide known tourist area, an outdoor enthusiast’s ideal home, retirement living goal and entrepreneur mecca.

A small town with many different types of people but all with one similar desire, be in a outdoor centeric town…

It isn’t unusual for kids to be picked up from school by parents in their ski clothes to head to lessons or a family night of skiing or snow boarding.

Real Estate Listings in Collingwood.

One of the hardest parts of building your dream home is finding the perfect lot.  The search can be long and tedious if going it alone, having an agent is the best way to narrow the field down.  The information of a local agent can be invaluable when it comes to lot issues that are not well known or advertised. For example there is some prime real estate in Collingwood that has taken over 15 years to develop.  A local agent knows why it’s taken so long to fill the development.  A non-local will not know the effects of the local industry, traffic, watercourses, etc. on these lots.

Once you have established a working relationship with an agent, you will find a multitude of wonderful building lots to build you dream home.  Send me an email and let me help you find your perfect custom home or building lot. jilldoes@myrealestateteam.net
