Choosing a community can be a stressful process, but the Kore Team has you covered. We focus our attention on, but are not limited to. Wasaga Beach, Collingwood and The Blue Mountains. Whether you’re searching for an affordable home in a beach town close to the water, an upbeat community with a pulse or an area that has endless summer and winter activities – we can find it!

The longest fresh water beach in the world- enough said. But this is only one of the many reasons the area is one of the fastest growing populations in Ontario. As the horizons of the GTA continue to reach for the north, and Barrie evolves into a self-sufficient industry hub, Wasaga Beach has quickly transitioned from cottage country into a feasible solution for the working class. With its beautiful beach front and beach town vibes, it has so much to offer for every generation. Geographically the offerings are endless. Beaches and waterfront are all around you. The summer season is fantastic for boating, swimming, hiking and enjoying the shops and restaurants to name a few.

In the winter months we are stones throw away from three of the best ski resorts in Ontario and have quick access to a network of snowmobiling and hiking trails.

We have helped many clients move from the GTA to Wasaga Beach. The affordability of housing is a huge influence, the price of a condo in city can be in line with the price of a fully detached home in Wasaga Beach. Wasaga Beach is booming and the future holds many changes for the once small beach town. With a new downtown and revamping of the main end in the works with current council, Wasaga Beach will only become more and more desirable.

The Nottawasaga River is a great option, for home or cottage use, as it provides a unique opportunity to store your water toys on sheltered waterfront. No home is the same along the river, making for an interesting mix of million dollar mansions to weekend family retreats.

The Nottawasaga can be broken into two section, with respect to the boundaries of Wasaga Beach, which are simply A. Upstream and B. Downstream of Schoonertown Bridge (MacDonalds Plaza).

The area downstream, sandwiched between Mosley & River Rd, is considered Navigable- in other words, prime boating in any cycle of water level. The water level fluctuates between 5 & 12′ for the most part.

The area upstream, which meanders through the Oxbow loop, is better left to small boats, canoes, and personal water craft, as it is unmarked- but still beautiful. The loop has a more mature feel, with a large tree canopy over many parts.

Regardless of the section of River within Wasaga Beach, prices generally start in the low 400’s for a starter home, and quickly work there way up to 1 Mil +.

The Oxbow Park Loop is another great spot to settle if you are in the market for a home or cottage. The area is unlike the rest of Wasaga Beach, surrounded by large trees & vegetation. The roadway follows the contour of the Nottawasaga River, making for an interesting make-up of property sizes and shapes.

Like most of Wasaga Beach, the area is slowly being developed as buyers see it’s potential.

Prices Range from the High 200’s for a non- riverfront fixer- upper, to 1 Mil+ for an estate on the Riverside. A Riverfront cottage can still be found in the Mid 300’s.

The numbered streets north of Mosley st run towards Georgian Bay, in a grid like pattern. Many buyers choose to live along these streets for their quick access to unspoiled beach areas & magnificent views, including Bowers, Brock, Springhurst, Oakview (working from East to West).

Homes in this area fall between 350,000 and 700,000, with some exceptions.

The Bayfront homes along Shore Lane offer sunset views over Georgian Bay. The starting price has risen dramatically over the past few years, to 800,000 for a ‘cottage’ and moving north from there. Like many other areas, waterfront property in Wasaga Beach are being gathered for future development.

Blue Water on the Bay is an upscale community located on the far West side of Wasaga Beach, close to the amenities of Collingwood.

The community offers larger detached homes (1800 sqft +), with a strip of Waterfront properties looking across the bay towards Tiny Township. For an annual fee of $228 (as of 2019), outdoor maintenance is covered, and the use of a community pool and clubhouse is all yours.

Blue Water on the Bay is a great solution for those that are looking for the ease of Condo living, but want the pride that comes with ownership of a detached home.

Aqua Luxury Beachfront Condo’s, located on the far east side of Wasaga Beach, offers well appointed condominiums with world class views to the North West. The Grande 36- Unit Building demands respect, with a panoramic views of the bay like no other.

The Low Rise Three Storey Building overlooking Georgian Bay has all of the amenities that you would expect to find as part of a exclusive waterfront community, including pool, fitness facility, recreational activity areas, meeting spots, gardens, and much more.

The condo’s themselves come in a variety of shapes & configurations, from 2 Bed/ 2 Bath Units to Luxury Penthouses, and range from 950-1800 sqft. Resale prices start in the mid 400’s, and work there way towards to the 1 Million dollar mark for a Penthouse Suite.

In 1986 the shipyards closed its doors after over 100 years in service. As a result, Collingwood took an economic downturn which took decades to recover. But investors and entrepreneurs were watching the sleepy waterfront community and saw an opportunity to resurrect the areas natural beauty and unique heritage with tastefully designed residential and commercial units built around the town core. And the rest is history.

We like to refer to Collingwood as the new mini Toronto. With new ‘hip’ boutique shops, restaurants and cafe’s popping up in every corner, there is never a lack of things to experience. This coupled with all of the essentials of a big town living is fun and easy. Proximity to beaches and Blue Mountain is definitely a plus. Housing prices have been on the rise in Collingwood over the years but affordability still remains.

As with any great attraction, the draw to live in close proximity brought many home owners and cottage goers to the Blue Mountain Area since the Weider family started clearing trails in the late 1940’s. Since then, Blue Mountain has become an internationally recognized tourist destination. Over the past 75 years, the area has been developed, with buildings constructed all around the slopes and outward. The homes and ski chalets are of a variety of designs, and modern-day developers continue to build under the same design philosophy to keep the area unique and desirable for investors and cottagers.

The Blue Mountain Village is a magical place, and is the draw to the area, in addition to the ski hills themselves. Boutique shops and restaurants surround the interlocked pedestrian walkways, always decorated to match the season. Live entertainment and countless activities will never leave you without something to do. Blue Mountain is a great area to invest in, with a consistent climb in home prices, and opportunity for investors looking to place their savings in an area with no horizons.
