The City of Barrie is one of Canada’s fastest growing and dynamic communities. The Barrie real estate market continues to rise in value, drawing in buyers from the GTA thanks to easy proximity to Highway 400 and two GO Train stations. Buyers who are house hunting in Barrie will find the city and surrounding areas have plenty of variety, whether you are a first time buyer, a downsizer, or a family looking to upsize to a larger home. An abundance of parkland can be found in this community with several parks lining the shores of beautiful Kempenfelt Bay. Barrie also offers a vibrant waterfront downtown area.
