A vibrant and very lively community, Barrie is a growing city that seemingly has it all. Located on Kempenfelt Bay, an arm of Lake Simcoe in the central portion of Southern Ontario, Canada, Barrie is an attractive location for home buyers and businesses developers alike.
Residents of Barrie have the unique advantage of being in a location of Ontario that offers serene, swimmable beaches to help beat the heat in the summer months, as well as challenging ski opportunities right at one’s doorstep, to help beat those winter blahs. Add to this a plethora of parklands that spread throughout the city and with several located within the magnificent Kempenfelt Bay area, offering extensive walking, biking and rollerblading trails.
In addition to these incredible outdoor opportunities, the city of Barrie also offers various educational and cultural attractions, which include: a 40,000 sq ft, state-of-art public library; the renowned Gryphon Theatre, and international concert performance venue at the Barrie Molson Centre as well as the MacLaren Art Centre. There are also numerous shopping opportunities at one of the many retail shopping outlets, located throughout the city.
For those looking to open a business, or those looking to expand their existing business, Barrie is the place to be! With the city of Toronto only 90km south of Barrie, there has been the perception of Barrie as a ‘bedroom community,’ for people who commute to Toronto. However, the 2001 Census as well as the City of Barrie Economic Development study has shown Barrie to have a net out-commuting figure of only 4.26%. What does this mean? This means, that in an expanding city such as Barrie, not only are there plenty of potential employees, but also the populous needed to not only sustain a healthy business enterprise, but also the opportunity to improve and expand year after year.
In a housing market as hot as Barrie, there is potential to turn a significant profit on one of your biggest investments. A great way to maximize your return on investment is to consider private real estate, by listing your property for sale by owner. This option has helped many people selling their home by owner to save thousands of dollars every year, via a flat fee MLS® listing. By choosing a company with a proven track record, listing on MLS® offers you the support and exposure you need all the while helping you to retain as much money from the sale of your home as possible.
