Holidays in Quebec, one cannot dream of better, whether it be in summer with the multitude of outdoor activities that the region offers, or in the winter, to enjoy the beautiful mountains and snow sports. And if, on top of all that, one has a beautiful cottage to meet up with family by the fire and relax after the effort, what a sweet icing on the cake! Yes, but how to buy a cottage in Quebec?

Chalets to buy in Quebec: a varied and dynamic real estate market

Buying a second home in Quebec has always been many’s dream and that is why the market for chalets for sale is very diverse. Small or large, rudimentary or luxurious, near a lake or forest, in the heart of a village or retired in the mountains, Quebec (and BARNES agency) definitely has the chalets you are looking for.

The chalet market is also extremely dynamic: the Capitale-Nationale, Laurentides and Estrie regions recorded sales records in 2017 (approximately 3921 resort properties according to the Quebec Federation of Real Estate Boards – QFREB). Fortunately, good deals are still possible if you like the rustic side and the simple life; thus, in the Hautes-Laurentides, one can find, with luck, chalets at $ 250,000. On the other hand, to Lakes Nominingue, Labelle or Des Bark, you will find nothing below $ 350,000. The other sector that has been on the rise for many years is Mont-Tremblant. Acquiring a chalet at the foot of the slopes in this area is a decision that can be expensive, yet remains a safe bet.
