You just spent some time over the summer, renting a cottage and enjoyed all the benefits of cottage life. Now you have the bug and are thinking about purchasing a cottage for your family. Should you wait until spring to make the move or should you consider buying this fall?
Here are some reasons why you might want to consider purchasing in the fall:
Owners of cottages that remain unsold from the spring/summer months may be more motivated to sell their properties now, rather than carry them over the winter.
There are fewer buyers to compete with.
You get to enjoy the cottage in the fall, spring and even in winter if it is four seasons.
You will have a better idea of what the shoreline and lake bottom looks like as the lake levels drop.
You get to see how much privacy you have from your neighbours when the leaves have fallen.
