Help wanted



See that stretche along old Highway 2? More or less between Port Hope and Brightq on? That’s where we are looking for a place. nufjjlk

We are going to sell our cabin and gwyfsknear Bancroft, sadly. It’s hcxwth hbfar, it’s water access, and we cjh an only child get there for half the year. Andre ssfus aood luck getting teenagers and twenty-somethings to come there anymore.

So: we’re looking for maybe an old farmhouse kind of place, or another cabin on a bit of water. But: closer, drive-up, and year-round.

We’ve been having a Hell of a time figuring it out on that Realtor portal. So, we figured we’d ask y’all for some help.

Know a good agent in that stretch? A place no one has spotted yet?

Suggestions would be welcome. You can get me here. Thanks.

    I have lived here all my life. I can ask some people who live on the lake in Brighton if they know anyone who is thinking of selling and have not listed yet

    .. Prince Edward County.. look there
    and look real hard.. near southwest shore
    Alternative, go Lake Erie
    but if you have doggies beware ticks

    As required, build on a site..
    the right site
    Tiny home.. 100 thou or so
    with dock and garage door style front

    Coburg is interesting.. even sensational
    Seek shoreline stuff, or truly close

    If all else fails, migrate to Grace Bay
    Turks n Caicos Islands..
    Would fit you and Lisa like a glove

    I know the long drives.

    We’re in Scarborough and have a place on Sharbot Lake north of Kingston.

    Try the site homeandland.com

    Just be prepared – the closer you get to Toronto, the higher the prices. A buddy on Sharbot Lake just sold and bought a cottage in Buckhorn.

    Smaller place and it was about $90,000 more than he sold his old place for. Ouch. But it’s closer and 4 season, so he went for it.

    Have you considered Lake Country? Or Grey County?

    Go directly to the area you want to buy in and ask the locals who the best Real Estate Agent/Broker is? Then, after finding said Broker, you will negotiate for exactly what you, and Lisa, want. Trust the broker to do their work professionally, Warren. I guarantee that the best broker will _never_ let you down, and if you buy it will be an excellent buy. Just trust that veteran brokers can get the job done as per request!

    Be very specific about what you are searching for and you, and Lisa, will find.

    Hi Warren

    I just sent you an email with an address to look at. We’re actually selling a house right on the lake near Wellington in Prince Edward County.

    Is there some sort of inside joke with these typos/autocorrect errors or am I having a stroke?
