The market for real estate in Barrie in Ontario is currently the tightest it’s ever been, according to the specialists at the Canadian Real Estate Association. With a shortage in supply and a growth in asking prices, finding a great property for a fair price in the city is becoming increasingly difficult. But even so, a few good real estate bargains can still be found in Barrie, and our advice is to act fast once you find one, because they seldom stay on the market for too long.
