Now Open British Fish & Chips In Wasaga Beach !!

Well This Englishman Has Been Waiting For The Restaurant To Open :)

Fish & chips wrapped in a Daily Express newspaper

And it finally did yesterday May 25th. The sign has been up for a while at 1232 Mosley Street as the hard work went on renovating the inside.

Just opposite the Riverbed Plaza where the RE/MAX office is ( very tempting ) there are a number of tables to dine in or of course get take out. Very clean, spacious and bright.

In the interest of research obviously I popped in to try some chips and there were delicious. This may sound strange but they were very English or should I say British rather than the thinner fries more usual around here and there was malt vinegar :)

Now in Britain “Fish and Chips” will mean Cod; you have to ask for Haddock, for example, specifically. Fish over here is Halibut or Haddock and this is one big but understandable difference given supply and local tastes.

So testing the fish is next on the agenda. I will take my 86 year old Mum along to get the final seal of approval.

One last thing; it is nice to see somewhere open that is non seasonal and residents can enjoy all year. Chain restaurants, franchises are great and we need them but it’s always good to see small independent businesses opening and hopefully getting local support.

Maybe see you there!

Wasaga Beach 2015 Real Estate Sales Figures; April Update

The Market Is HOT In Wasaga Beach

ID-100196550

 

There is really no need for me to add any commentary this month.

The figures absolutely speak for themselves.

FOR THE FIRST 4 MONTHS OF THE YEAR, UP TO THE END OF APRIL 2015, 48% MORE LISTINGS HAD SOLD IN WASAGA BEACH THAN IN THE CORRESPONDING 4 MONTHS OF 2014.

Multiple offers, homes selling within a day of being listed, the market is crazy as they say.

May has continued to be busy.

Personally I think unlike any other year, Wasaga Beach did not have slow period over the winter. Buyers were making offers up to Christmas Eve and in the first week of January. Couple this with the seasonally low number of listings and there was limited choice. The sales for the first 3 months of the year were very good and this has created the current market. Remember the busiest month for sales is normally June or July with a lull in August and then a busy September.

We shall see what happens for the next few months.

I do know if you are thinking of selling your home in Wasaga Beach now is the time to do it.

Not everyone likes big corporate companies such as McDonalds.

Most people I know like McDonalds as a burger though :)
