Barrie is a vibrant, growing city with so much to offer. yet so much more to come. If you like the outdoors, then Barrie should be a consideration of yours. We have skiing, snowboarding, skating, hockey, tubing, fishing, swimming, boating and the list goes on and on. It is like living in a vacation destination year round. We are so close to Toronto (about an hour north) and the surrounding cities and townships are wonderful places to explore, live, work and play in. We truly do have it all.
For those that are considering a move to Barrie, I would love to tour you around and help you learn about our rich heritage and all that Barrie has to offer. Home prices are still reasonable compared to larger urban cities, however Barrie continues to be a sound investment for your real estate dollars.
According to the latest stats from The Barrie & District Associations of Realtors (BDAR) Barrie saw an increase in home prices of 19% compared to the average selling price in 2016.
We have been seeing more and more people from larger cities as well as other countries choose to call Barrie home. I believe we will continue to see this type of activity in the next few years to come. With interest rates low and the cost of home prices increasing in Toronto and the GTA, I think Barrie will be the place to buy a home for many millennial first time home buyers as well as baby boomers who are downsizing and want to retire in style.
Barrie is the place to be.
