About Meaford, Ontario
The Town of Meaford is located directly on Nottawasaga Bay. Known for its productive apple orchards, this area of South Georgian Bay offers a small-town lifestyle. Quiet nights, friendly neighbours, and safe streets are the norm in Meaford. The municipality of Meaford includes the communities of Annan, Balaclava, Bognor, Centreville, Leith, and Woodford. With hot summers and warm autumn temperatures, this area originally attracted people from the city who wanted to buy weekend homes. A cottage-building industry bloomed and the town became a centre of commerce for weekenders from the city.
Meaford has a community spirit that supports a thriving cultural experience and a vigorous business community. In the village, a collection of unique shops and services have become ensconced in the historic downtown. The harbour area is the real centre of attention and the venue for summer celebrations. There are boutiques and eateries plus a 330-seat theatre for the many concerts and music events throughout the year.
Just beyond the village, acres of rolling counryside and winding roads bring visitors to secluded beaches and unspoiled natural areas. In summer months, the local waterfront campground attracts people from all over Ontario to play in the surf of Lake Huron. In winter, the slopes of Blue Mountain Resort and shopping in Collingwood are just a short drive away. All year, you’re at home in Meaford.
Meaford real estate
Meaford real estate has been the focus for new development for several years due to the dispersion of city folks to more affordable areas. Slightly lower home prices (compared to Collingwood) draws the attention of winter sport enthusiasts, leading to seasonal property purchases, affirming Meaford’s status as cottage country.
Investors know this is a community in the process of being regentrified and that property values will continue to grow at above average rates. Meaford has initiatives in place to support home sales and it provides healthy incentives to commercial property owners to keep heritage buildings in good repair and storefronts rented year round.
