Buying Wasaga Beach Waterfront Property

buying wasaga beach waterfront property

When buying Wasaga Beach waterfront property. Whether it be riverfront or beachfront you won't regret purchasing your future waterfront property in Wasaga Beach. Check out these tips to help with your waterfront property search.

Find a waterfront specialist

Most Realtors® practice selling residential real estate but don't focus on one area such as Wasaga Beach waterfront property.Make sure to choose a Realtor® who has detailed knowledge of the Waterfront properties in the Wasaga Beach.

Choose the waterfront type that fits your lifestyle:

Wasaga Beach offers beachfront and riverfront properties. For boating and fishing enthusiasts riverfront would be more a fit. If breathtaking sunsets, sandy beaches, regular swimming and sunbathing is your goal then beachfront would make more sense for you.

Check your budget before shopping

Riverfront is generally much more affordable than beachfront in Wasaga Beach. Talk to your mortgage specialist and get pre-approved so you have a good grasp on your affordability. 

Check the quality of the beach

Wasaga Beach has 14 kilometers of beachfront so as you can imagine the beach isn't the same from one end to the other. The west end of the beach isn't as sandy and spacious as say the east end. If you're looking for a more family oriented quiet beach then the west side will fit your needs more. If you want more night life and activities then the east side will work best for you.

Other considerations

Make sure to examine the structure when buying your beachfront house. Due to strong northwest winds Wasaga Beach beachfront is more susceptible to high wind exposure. Check for any cracks in the exterior, make sure windows have high R-Value, check the condition of the shingles.

When buying riverfront check the break-wall condition. Is it cedar or metal? Knowing this will give you a good idea of how much life is left in it. Is the property in a flood zone? Check for historical water levels with the ministry.

It is always advisable to hire a home inspector who is qualified in waterfront properties. Interview several home inspectors to gauge how much experience they may have in this type of property.
