Wasaga Beach has a very unique pattern when it comes to real estate sales.  At the end of the year the Wasaga Beach homes for sales, will probably see a price drop to create a notification to local realtors.  This is an excellent opportunity to snatch up the cottage or home you have been eyeing up for the last year.  With a new year comes a fresh start and new decisions.  A lot of cottage owners that are on the fence about selling their real estate use the new years as jump start to get down off the fence.   There is also the New Years resolution crowd.  Home owners make resolutions such as, “We need a bigger home” or ” We need to down size”, all good reason to watch the January listings come out of the gates full throttle.

Then there are the late bloomers, sellers that decide to hang onto the property for one more summer and try to sell in the fall.
