Although the Southern Georgian Bay region is relatively small, it encompasses six key areas including Collingwood, Clearview Township, the Town of Blue Mountains, Grey Highlands, Wasaga Beach and Meaford. Despite their close proximity to one another, average residential sale prices are notedly different in each as the map below shows.
The Blue Mountains average sale price is similar to Toronto but for very different types of properties. Whereas $1m may only buy a small home or even a town in Toronto, the same dollars can fetch a small waterfront or golf course home in our area. More bang for the buck as they say. Clearview and Grey Highlands are largely rural communities where average sale prices reflect the higher number of estate properties found in those areas compared to the more urban centres like Collingwood and Wasaga Beach. Meaford has the lowest average sale price in the region which is not surprising given that it has almost no industry and is the furthest point west in the area and therefore a greater distance from the major markets that feed our area.
