With the weather beginning to warm and the days getting longer, the taste of summer is in the air. Many Canadians are looking forward to that first annual trip to the cottage. Perhaps this will be the year you and your family invest in a recreational property all your own… 

According to the Royal LePage® 2024 Spring Recreational Property Report, the median price of a single-family home in Canada’s recreational regions is forecast to increase 5.0% in 2024 to $678,930, compared to 2023, as a boost in consumer confidence brings sidelined buyers back to the market. All of Canada’s provincial recreational markets are forecast to see an increase in single-family home prices in 2024. Ontario is expected to record the greatest price appreciation, at 8.0%.
