Why are there so many homes for sale in Crystal Beach?

16 and 22 Queen's Circle, Crystal Beach

Crystal Beach, Ontario cottages for sale

At D. W. Howard Realty, we notice that many prospective buyers exploring the area are surprised at the number of homes for sale in Crystal Beach.

Many of the homes here are summer cottages. While owning a cottage can be a satisfying long-term investment, owners can become unwilling or unable to keep up with taking care of a second home. The family probably used the cottage quite a bit when they first purchased it, but over the years the family has perhaps lost interest or doesn’t have the time to get up to the cottage as much as they would like to, thus the decision to put it on the market.

If you drive or walk through the grids and circles of Crystal Beach Ontario streets, you may be struck by the contrast between some of the original structures in need of repair and the houses that have been renovated or rebuilt. Many investors have (and continue to) buy run-down homes at a great price,  and “flip” the house.  Many summer cottages have been updated, winterized and re-sold as year-round homes.  Timing and location are everything.  Contact D. W. Howard Realty now to discuss factors that would affect your decision to buy or sell. Our agents have extensive local knowledge, and want to help you achieve your real estate dreams.

Crystal Beach features two gated communities, the Tennis & Yacht Club, and the Crystal Beach Hill Association.  Also nearby for the nature lover is the stunningly beautiful gated community of Point Abino.

Crystal Beach lies on the north shore of Lake Erie and is within the Town of Fort Erie, and is an easy 20 minute commute from Buffalo NY, Niagara Falls, Welland and Port Colborne ON You will love the small town charm and the beach-casual atmosphere of owning a Crystal Beach property.  Walk to an incredible white sand beach that will make you feel like you’re on vacation all year long.  (Yes, there are several months when it is too chilly to lay out in your bikini, but there are an increasing number of excellent winter activities and festivals in the area too!  Niagara Falls ON is becoming more and more of a year-round destination.)
