There will be work required to the rear deck to make it safe as some of the railings etc are missing. You will also need a good lawn mower as the lawns at this time are over grown and very weedy.

The Barrie real estate market is still quite affordable when compared to the GTA, however, home prices have risen here recently and at this time prices are somewhat stretched.  No matter where you are buying in the Barrie reales estate area some basic do’s and Read the rest of this entry
