The Roof Is On (For Cameron House!)

A major milestone was achieved this past week, with the installation of the roof for Cameron House. With this step completed, all efforts can now turn to building out the interiors. On that front, interior structural framing is nearing completion on the lower floors in Cameron House, and drywalling is due to begin shortly.

Over in Balsam house, painting and sanding is well underway on the upper floors and kitchen millwork installations will be complete by the first week of May.

Drywalling is nearing completion in the southern and northern blocks of the Clubtowns. Painting and light fixtures are next, followed by millwork and tiling. In the central block, interior framing is complete with insulation and drywall to take place in the coming weeks.

Spring has most definitely sprung as the site is a hive of activity!

Kawarthas Among Best Places to Buy In Canada!

Moneysense Canada has recently published their annual rankings of the best places in the country to buy real estate. They looked at a combination of value and growth potential when determining their rankings.

Unsurprisingly, major metropolitan areas such as Toronto and Vancouver placed near the bottom of their list. However, the Kawartha Lakes region ranked 15th with a 5-year growth trend of 98%!

It goes to show that despite the turbulence in the real estate market and wider economy last year, key markets witnessed price growth, and certain regions, the Kawartha’s included, emerged as still offering exceptional value and growth potential.
