Recreational Market Update

Kenora Recreational Real Estate Market

Prolonged winter conditions have meant for a slow recreational market start in Northwestern Ontario.  Approx. 65% of the ground is covered with snow pack and there are reports of 48" of lake ice.  I believe we turned the corner this week with the arrival of normal temperatures. (Normal high 11C, low 0C)
