Fun Facts about these answers: 

McDonalds started as a single Burger joint, but instead of flipping burgers for their profits, McDonalds decided to franchise out the business, buy the land of all the locations and have the franchisee do the work while they reap the benefits! 

Here in Canada, CP Rail is the largest land owner in the country! Their railways and former railways (now trail systems) span all across this great country! 

The average home size in many developing countries is 75 square feet! Could you imagine you and your family living, eating, sleeping in a space the size of your bedroom?? 

The market heats up during Spring, as the warmer weather comes and people begin looking for a change. It's also a great time for families with school-aged kids to start looking so they can purchase, have their closing date, move and get settled all before a new school year starts! 

Descriptive words such as 'beautiful' and 'gorgeous' give the home a welcoming feeling, Who doesn't want their home to be gorgeous and beautiful? 

It's true! Yellow homes sell more! Yellow tones are happy, they make a potential buyer feel good. 

While the average Sale Price across Canada this time last year was $530,304, here in Southern Georgian Bay, our average is more around the $375,000 - $450,000 range.
