When investing hundreds of thousands of dollars in a recreational property you will need to do your due diligence and seek solid advice. The Complete Guide to Buying and Owning Recreational Property in Canada, written by Canada’s leading authority on matters related to real estate, offers valuable insights and tips, and will prove a trustworthy resource for many years to come.

For the potential buyer of vacation property, the cost of entry is stiff, and buying a second property can be a potential minefield. It is imperative that due diligence be carried out. This book can be used as part of that process, as it will help buyers to:
  • Buy the right property, for the right reasons, in the right location
  • Set a purchase and financing strategy to negotiate your best deal
  • Exercise caution when buying with family or friends and how to keep peace in the family when sharing use or ownership
  • Obtain tax and estate planning strategic advice to save tax on transfer, sale or bequeathing of the property, or inheriting a property
  • Find creative ways of using your vacation home or cottage for exchange or barter
  • and much more.
In addition to the above, the book includes sources of further information, key websites, checklists, a glossary and index.
