Location: A one- to two-hour drive from | Halifax Price for a waterfront cottage: $85,000 to $400,000

Retirees, young families and people returning from jobs outside of the province are the major purchasers of recreational properties in Nova Scotia. Featuring sandy beaches and a close proximity to Halifax, the South Shore area runs southwest from Halifax Harbour, through the Lunenburg area and the towns of Bridgewater and Shelburne. Dozens of lighthouses and quaint fishing towns with historic streetscapes are scattered all along the shoreline.

Prices for waterfront properties can climb as high as $850,000 in some areas, but according to the Re/Max report, you can find great values in small oceanside communities, where modest cottages can be bought for $120,000. “Things have slowed down considerably this year,” says Bert Price, a realtor with Tradewinds Realty in Chester, N.S. “The lakefront cottages are holding steady in price.”

The more popular lakes include Big Mushamush Lake, Lake Torment, and Fancy Lake. These lakes are within an hour and a half of Halifax and have several picturesque cottages listed for sale between $200,000 and $350,000. Or have a look at some of the cottages located on the South Shore’s many coves, including cottages on Hubley, Hackett’s and South Cove.

“The spectacular panoramic views are very appealing to vacationers looking for a recreational property,” says Monica Sontrop, a real estate agent with Tradewinds Realty in Chester. If you feel inspired to build your own oceanfront paradise, check out the 1.25-acre lots with 240 feet of frontage on Frost Fish Cove, which start at an affordable $265,000. Then roll up your sleeves and build the cottage of your dreams.

  1. The Nova Scotia shore of the Bay of Fundy has the same advantages as the South Shore of Nova Scotia – but it is better. My bias stems from comparing idyllic summers (as a child) in both places.
    Some areas of the roughly 110 km of the Fundy shore, which stretches from Cape Split and Cape Blomidon westward to Brier Island and Westport, are as close as the one- to two-hour drive from Halifax. Some of the beaches are sandy (Delhaven springs to mind); others are mostly rocky – but they are all navigable. And all bear witness to the power of nature with the highest tides in the world – a 50 foot difference (and more) between the high and low tides carves out impressive beachscapes.
    Cottage prices and/or lot prices for that dream cottage along the Bay of Fundy are certainly much cheaper – because the little communities have not yet "been discovered". These communities are well served by the towns and farms in the nearby Annapolis Valley, the farming belt of Nova Scotia, which is roughly a 15 minute drive away.
    Think of the Bay of Fundy shore as a hidden paradise of cottage lots.

  2. You have got to be kidding! There is nothing so spectactular than the Bras D' Or Lakes of Cape Breton .Land and dwellings right on the water, or on the Mira River are not as pricy as the mainland ,but the view and the people are priceless.

  4. The Zune concentrates on being a Portable Media Player. Not a web browser. Not a game machine. Maybe in the future it’ll do even better in those areas, but for now it’s a fantastic way to organize and listen to your music and videos, and is without peer in that regard. The iPod’s strengths are its web browsing and apps. If those sound more compelling, perhaps it is your best choice.

  5. The new Zune browser is surprisingly good, but not as good as the iPod’s. It works well, but isn’t as fast as Safari, and has a clunkier interface. If you occasionally plan on using the web browser that’s not an issue, but if you’re planning to browse the web alot from your PMP then the iPod’s larger screen and better browser may be important.

  7. This is getting a bit more subjective, but I much prefer the Zune Marketplace. The interface is colorful, has more flair, and some cool features like ‘Mixview’ that let you quickly see related albums, songs, or other users related to what you’re listening to. Clicking on one of those will center on that item, and another set of “neighbors” will come into view, allowing you to navigate around exploring by similar artists, songs, or users. Speaking of users, the Zune “Social” is also great fun, letting you find others with shared tastes and becoming friends with them. You then can listen to a playlist created based on an amalgamation of what all your friends are listening to, which is also enjoyable. Those concerned with privacy will be relieved to know you can prevent the public from seeing your personal listening habits if you so choose.

  8. I’ll gear this review to 2 types of people: current Zune owners who are considering an upgrade, and people trying to decide between a Zune and an iPod. (There are other players worth considering out there, like the Sony Walkman X, but I hope this gives you enough info to make an informed decision of the Zune vs players other than the iPod line as well.)

  11. Hands down, Apple’s app store wins by a mile. It’s a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I’m not sure I’d want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

  19. Found this insightful little niche through the wonders of Bing! I’m a very conservative investor myself and I’ve read a few of those investment banking books (mainly Liar’s Poker and The Big Short) – interesting stuff but I wouldn’t dare put my money into risky assets or junk bonds. Look what happened to Milken – off to prison! I’d really recommend reading up on this award-winning article written by Delos Chang about the S&P 500. It meshes really well with a Random Walk Down Wall Street and can really provide you some great direction for your investing career. Once again, I’m no day trader and I don’t have an informational advantage over anyone – but I sure as hell know I want to make a decent return with the money that I put into the market. With all the drug wars going on, who knows when it could disappear?

  23. Thanks for discussing your ideas with this blog. As well, a fantasy regarding the finance institutions intentions any time talking about property foreclosure is that the lender will not take my installments. There is a certain amount of time that the bank will take payments from time to time. If you are also deep in the hole, they are going to commonly call that you pay the payment completely. However, that doesn’t mean that they will not take any sort of payments at all. In the event you and the lender can be capable to work a little something out, your foreclosure method may end. However, in the event you continue to neglect payments under the new approach, the foreclosed process can just pick up from where it left off.

  38. Property solicitors are solicitors, which we would almost all require at some point during our life time. This is because property solicitors mainly deal with conveyancing transactions. Conveyancing refers to the sale or purchase of a property and is the transfer of legal title usually from the seller to the buyer. Although, the transaction is a little more complex than that. However, if you do not choose a reliable and experiences property lawyers then you may come unstuck later on in the transaction. For example, some property solicitors mat not communicate enough with their clients and poor communication can lead to confusion and unwanted stress.
