MEET YOUR FRIENDLY NEIGHBOURHOOD COTTAGERS & REAL ESTATE CONSULTANTS:
Hello! We're Megan and Randy Scott and are both specialized, cottage country, real estate agents. Our focus is on buying and selling waterfront properties on Rice Lake Ontario, Kawartha Lakes and surrounding areas. We are proud to be part of this community and to say that we have been sharing the lake with other cottagers for over 50+ years. Both of us started with backgrounds in accounting and after having our triplets Megan reinvented her career in real estate and Randy stayed in his career of Accounting. Megan is a full-time award-winning real estate agent who has been working in the industry for more than a decade. Randy has held various accounting roles in the automotive sector, with his most recent position as a CFO for a highly respected company. He is also a licensed real estate agent with a natural talent for accurately evaluating commercial properties and investments. Together, with our combined skill set, proven sales results, internal drive for excellence, and our passion to see others believing in their dreams, we are confident that we can help you find your recreational or primary dream waterfront property! Learn more about us and our client philosophy below.
BUYING AND SELLING IS DIFFERENT IN COTTAGE COUNTRY THAN IN THE CITY
Therefore, it's imperative you choose a specialized real agent that understands the complexities of recreational transactions to take care of your needs. Thankfully, we have the experience of both cottage and city living. Choosing an agent that is experienced in both, is an asset. A large portion of cottage buyers are usually from the city and we feel we have a good understanding of the city folk’s wants and needs. On the same hand, we are cottagers, a down-to-earth couple who grew up in cottage country.
Scottage Group is a technology-based group that will leverage your home with the latest trends, social media, websites, and multiple real estate boards to get your property widely viewed. We are not new to the real estate industry and have built a secure network of industry professionals, so you don't have to feel overwhelmed.
So why would buying in cottage country be so different? Well, for starters there are very different criteria you will want to start considering that you may have not thought about with your primary home in the city. Take for example some of these questions:
- Does the property have access to a public road or only by boat?
- Does it have a private road? Who maintains the roads?
- Is your property surrounded by Crown or private land?
- Do you want to be closer to marinas?
- Do you prefer a waterfront that is sand or rock? Shallow or deep?
- Is your property connected to the municipal sewage or septic?
- Is your water supply on a well or city water?
- How close are you to highways and amenities?
- Does your area have internet, satellite or cable service?
But these are things you don't need to stress about because we'll ensure you get exactly what you need. When we chat, we work hard to understand your needs, preferences, lifestyle, budget, goals and must-haves. Together, we come up with a plan and how to tackle it.
When selling in cottage country it could take longer here than in the city. Is it important to have a team on your side that is patient and not afraid to work hard for you! We understand cottages are a little piece of history where long-lasting memories are made. If you are buying a property it is a very exciting time for you to make new memories. If you selling, we understand this can be particularly hard for you and your family. Either way, we are here every step of the way to help you feel comfortable and at ease.
