8 Reasons to Move to Barrie


Affordability

When it comes to affordability, Barrie has some of the most affordable housing prices north of the GTA. 

As of today, current MLS stats report the average price of a home in Barrie is $453,328.

Considering the average price of a home in Toronto, according to a recent report is $824,336, Barrie is excellent for first-time home buyers who are looking to get into the market and for buyers who are looking to get more home for their money.

The Beautiful Outdoors

If you love nature, Barrie boasts beautiful parks and is abundant with hiking and biking trails.

With access to over 88km of public trails, which are naturally beautiful throughout all four seasons there is no excuse to not get outdoors.

Fun filled Waterfront

Barrie’s waterfront has three beaches, parks and a gorgeous waterfront trail.

You can relax on the beach, play beach volleyball, go for a swim, enjoy a kayak ride, or go boating.

With something for everyone, children especially will love the playgrounds and splash pads!

Winter Activity Haven

If you love outdoor winter activities, or always wanted to try them, this is your chance!

Barrie is a winter wonderland for skiing, snowboarding, snowmobiling tubing and snow-shoeing.

With choices like Horseshoe Resort, Mount St. Louis Moonstone, Snow Valley and Blue Mountain - the possibilities for winter fun are endless! 


Fantastic Shopping

There are also excellent shopping malls with international retailers, as well as flea markets and local farmer markets.

There is something for everyone and every budget!

Foodies Unite

There are also a few fantastic world-class spas where you can get pampered with Scandinavian baths and massages.


Excellent Schools

Post-secondary education choices include Georgian College and Lakehead University: Orillia Campus.
