Stunning Condo in Wyldewood

COMMENT ON THIS POST »

I’ve just listed one of the most exquisite condos I’ve seen in Collingwood and am pretty excited to show it off to you.

This oh-so-chic condo has the largest plan in Wyldewood with 1456 square feet featuring 3 bedrooms (or two plus a den) including a second floor loft. It’s like having two master bedrooms since two of the bedrooms have ensuite baths making it ideal for guests. The great room has soaring, 18 foot high ceilings, off-white walls, dark floors, oodles of sunshine and light, a gas fireplace and a beautiful, upgraded kitchen.

Have a look at the video below to see just what I mean. The owners are very serious about getting this unit sold and have priced it exceptionally well and below comparable sales. If you are looking for good value, upscale surroundings and an ideal ski retreat, summer getaway or a new home, this is a must to see at $259,900.

Wyldewood sign

Not to be confused with the new Wyldewood Cove project now under development, Wydlewood was the first local project for developer, Brandy Lane Homes. It opened in the summer of 2010 to spectacular success and was one of the fastest selling projects ever in the region and, it was completed in 2012.

bldg ext

Wyldewood is set on 10 acres in the west end of Collingwood off Hwy 26 adjacent to Cranberry Village and almost opposite Rupert’s Landing and abutting a protected forest as well as Collingwood’s trail network. There are a total of seven, 3 ½ storey buildings with 24 units in each. In addition to being trailside, the development features a year-round heated pool that can be enjoyed in ANY season.  Here are some folks enjoying a winter swim.

The design is unique to the area as the units are accessed from open door corridors. There are elevators for convenient access to each level. All units have adjacent and quite large storage lockers located next to their entry door.

There are 8 different floorplans ranging in size from 1045 to 1456 square feet. Some of the top level homes feature second floor lofts with 18’ high ceilings on their main floors. Each unit has a private terrace or balcony with a BBQ gas line.  Resale values generally range from about $220,000 to $270,000.

Live Waterside in Downtown Collingwood

COMMENT ON THIS POST »

There is something very appealing about walking out your door and being a 5 minute walk to the grocer, the LCBO, the bank and shops. There is something even more appealing about sitting on your patio or looking out your windows and watching a sunrise over the water or watching visiting yachts moor by your door.

Proximity
I’ve just listed the very lovely, ground floor condo where you can enjoy this rare lifestyle combination of living dockside on the water yet be conveniently right downtown in Collingwood. Simply step out your door and onto the promenade trail from this east facing unit that overlooks the water from this iconic site that recalls the history of Collingwood’s shipyard era.

LR2Patio to water

This beautiful, 1 bedroom + den unit has been reconfigured as two bedrooms and features many well-appointed finishes such as hardwood floors through-out, smooth ceilings, California shutters, granite countertops, gas heat, central air conditioning, gas fireplace with built-in cabinetry.

June 2014 Real Estate Market Recap For Collingwood, Blue Mountain and Area

COMMENT ON THIS POST »

As we’ve passed the halfway mark in this year, it’s a good time to take a check up on the real estate market in Collingwood, Blue Mountain and area for 2014.

The month of June broke all records with 248 sales. That beat the 245 sales that occurred in June 2007 at the peak of our local market. While the number of sales year-to-date is only up about 1% over last year, all of the increase has been in the last two months when sales were up 20% compared to May and June of 2103.

The largest growth in sales units has been in the higher end of the market over $500,000 and therefore, the dollar value of sales year-to-date is up over 9% from last year to almost $326 million. Here are how single family sales, year-to-date, break down into the various price bands:

27% of sales are under $200,000
45% are priced from $200,000 to $350,000
16% are priced from $350,000 to $500,000
12% are priced over $500,000

That means that 72% of all sales in the area are still under $350,000 even though the average residential sale price (not median) in the area year to date is $355,754.00

Price Bands

The number of properties listed for sale is down by 2% YTD however, they were up in June compared to previous years which, if that trend continues, may help to bring some balance back into the marketplace. Right now, we are seeing lower to mid-priced homes, in town, selling very quickly and often with competing offers so that segment of the new inventory is quickly being depleted.

In Collingwood, the sales to listing ratios for the month of June hit 58% and 59% respectively which suggest we have moved into seller’s market conditions in those two communities.

At the end of June, 2014, there were 2420 active listings on the market in our area.Residential Summary by areaCondominiums

In the first six months of 2013, there were a total of 175 condominium sales reported on our MLS® with an average sale price of $219.537.00. This year, there have been 11% more sales in the same period with 191 units sold at an average sale price marginally up to $226,803.00. Here is a breakdown of sales over the last six months

Condo sales

Bottom Line:

The market is very strong and well-priced, well presented properties are selling. Both Buyers and Sellers really need to look at hyper-local data to determine pricing in specific areas. As always, well-priced and well-presented properties win the race every time.  I would expect strong or even stronger market conditions to prevail through the next months as well.
