Why Canada's cottage country is booming

Canada’s housing markets are red-hot in parts of the country that we’ve never seen before, like rural neighbourhoods.

There’s even a boom in cottage-country as people rush to buy a vacation property or work from home oasis, complete with bidding wars and rapidly rising prices.

We’ve been getting monthly updates from the ground floor from Realosophy Realty’s John Pasalis and Oakwyn Realty’s Steve Saretsky, who help make sense of it all, with advice for anyone buying or selling a home.

They shared their thoughts on what’s going on with recreational properties and which markets are the hottest in Ontario and British Columbia.
