Spring is often the time of year when many people consider buying or selling a house. Unless circumstances dictate, most people prefer not to make a move during the winter months, so as spring rolls around many people start to think about moving.
If you are considering moving to Barrie, there are a few things worth knowing. For starters, I am able to help in any way possible when it comes to finding the perfect home for you and your family. Let me know how I can help and I will be here for you.
Moving to Barrie can be a exciting thing to consider. As one of the country’s fastest growing cities for the better part of the last 2 decades, Barrie is a popular destination for many people just like you. Being so close to the GTA, Barrie offers a great opportunity for you to commute to Toronto while still offering a ‘small city’ atmosphere.
As spring turns to summer, you’ll be able to take advantage of the great waterfront the city has to offer. With Kempenfelt Bay essentially carving out the central portion of the city, the water is a big part of Barrie. Whether you enjoy fishing, boating, swimming or just walking along the shore, moving to Barrie will allow you to enjoy the waterfront in a number of different ways.
You’ll be pleased to know that although Barrie is close to Toronto, the housing market is not quite in the same price range. Many people moving to Barrie find that one of the most appealing things is the price point in regard to comparable houses in the GTA.
Even if you are not a commuter, Barrie has a lot to offer. If you are looking for a quiet place to raise a family, the city is a great option for you. The increasing number of manufacturing and institutions here (like Georgian College, for instance) make Barrie a very attractive place to live and work.
