What's the best time of year to buy a cottage? The Toronto Sun argues it might be early spring.
They said, "If you’re thinking about buying a cottage, be prepared to begin your search as soon as the snow starts to melt."
Getting your search started early will ensure that you can see more properties before they sell. It also means you aren't buying during the peak summer season which can be more expensive.
When looking for your cottage think about all aspects. Is it just for you or will you rent? Do you want to be on a big lake or small lake? Do you need year-round access or is seasonal ok? Good luck with your search!
