Free Land to Build your Dream Home for the New Year – Terrain libre pour construire votre maison de rêve pour la nouvelle année

The cheap land offered by Smooth Rock Falls has all been snapped up, but the neighboring community of Fauquier has vacant, serviced residential lots available free of charge. With numerous amenities, low living costs, beautiful scenery, and a hot local job market, these Northern Communities are fast becoming the go to place for wannabe Home owners tired of high cost city life. For more info read the full article.

Version Française

Have you been dreaming of building a new home, but finding yourself getting tired of searching through overpriced and overcrowded building lots? Tired of having to pick through a small selection of ‘model homes’ that never really manage to look quite like the dream home you have in your imagination, but still manage to look like a hundred other houses in the same subdivision. Are you unsettled by all the tightly packed houses with equally tightly packed backyards? Looking for a New Build home anywhere in Southwestern Ontario is enough to give you grey hair, which you might not have lost all of by the time you manage to finish paying off a mortgage on one of them. Way back in 1984 a New Build 3 bedroom home in the Paisley Rd and Whitelaw Rd area of Guelph cost $65,000. At that time Guelph was a popular escape for Torontonians looking to get a foot on the housing ladder. Today, houses in the same neighbourhood sell for $500,000. You can save a little by moving out to some of the smaller communities but to get any real cost savings you will have to put some serious distance between yourself and your job, which means lots of time on the road, in traffic and lots of wear on your car.

Let’s be honest here, you know exactly what kind of home you want but all the building lots come with huge price tags, whether you are buying in a new subdivision or a separate lot of your own. That piece of land can be one of the single biggest ongoing price tags that comes with building your dream home. It’s not just the cost of the land itself but also the cost of getting building permits, and establishing utilities, and the ongoing expenses of high property taxes, along with water and sewage costs.

What if I told you there was a place in Ontario, plentiful with both well paying jobs and business opportunities for professionals, within a short 20 minute commute, that also has low cost residential building lots for you to build your dream home.

And just to be clear here, when I say low cost what i actually mean is No Cost.

What if I told you that in this same community you could enjoy access to over 1500+ km of top rated OFSC snowmobile trails, access to endless rivers and lakes for fishing and boating, and 100,000’s of acres of forest to explore.

 What if I told you this little community also has safe, quiet streets where kids still ride around on their bikes all summer long, sled on the hills and skate at the free public skating rink all winter. A place where neighbours generally know each other by name but still say Hello or Bonjour and stop for a chat even if they don’t.

What if I told you the combined annual property taxes and municipal water & sewage fees on your property would likely average less than $2000 every year.

 Believe it or not, the icing on the cake, you can get to this quiet little community from downtown Toronto in 3 hours, and with no traffic jams! That is a 90 minute trip on one of Porter Airlines twice daily trips to Timmins and a peaceful 90 minute drive through beautiful Northern Ontario forest. You might even get a chance to see some of the local wildlife on the way, as Moose and Bears can often be seen enjoying the grass on the side of the highway.

That’s faster than trying to get to Overpriced Huntsville from Downtown T.O.

Now you’ve probably heard of the Town of Smooth Rock Falls in the news over recent months, and the two releases of over 32 vacant municipal lots they have listed for sale. The town has experienced such a dramatic success with both of these recent announcements that the land on offer has been snapped up at incredibly low prices! The town has even put in place a number of incentives to encourage new commercial and residential builds in their community. Smooth Rock Falls however, isn’t the only town in this region with great deals for those wanting to build their homes or businesses in these communities. Travel 20 mins west from Smooth Rock Falls along the Transnational Highway 11 and you will come across the beautiful little VILLAGE OF FAUQUIER nestled along the shores of the Groundhog River. It would be easy to dismiss this quiet, well-kept community, but it holds a long held secret that doesn’t get much air time, and little more than a brief mention anywhere on the internet.

The Secret

The town has a number of municipally owned, vacant, serviced, residential building lots available to families who wish to build a Residence in the Community. The price tag for these building lots….. $0.00.

You read that right $0.00, it’s not a typo, the land to build your dream home is available free of charge.   CONTACT THE MUNICIPAL OFFICE AT (705) 339-2521 FOR MORE DETAILS

 

You’re probably wondering what must be wrong with the village that they are willing to give land away for free? Well let me assure you there is nothing wrong with this little village, in fact it has much more going for it than you might think;

The town is only 20 minutes away from the local commercial centre of Kapuskasing, where some of the regions biggest employers are located. There is a demand for professionals and skilled trades alike throughout the community, and with the recent announcement of the building of a new Medical Marijuana Facility in Kapuskasing in 2018 bringing with it 60+ jobs, the job prospects just keep growing. (We post a weekly blog of currently available job openings so be sure to check it out, you can get to it from HERE.)

The Village of Fauquier offers some amazing amenities that are a short walk from anywhere in the village. A beautifully maintained outdoor skating rink with a clubhouse with free public skating as well as a basketball court, a skate board park and a play ground.

The Community Centre situated in the middle of the village behind the church also houses the town offices and the surprisingly well stocked public library that carries a large selection of both English and French language books for all ages in addition to a very up to date DVD and Bilingual audio book collection that would rival that of many big city libraries. Village residents can also become members of the Kapuskasing Public Library which provides additional access to Overdrive digital media and other online library resources. A Nurse Practitioner Led Health Centre is also  located next door to the Community Centre.

There is a boat launch and picnic area providing access to the Groundhog River, as well access to the large lakes located in the community. Every summer the picnic area hosts the weekly farmers market, and a number of well attended community events take place throughout the year.

The local corner store is also home to a Canada Post Agency and L.C.B.O. Agency.

The postal service is just as fast here as anywhere else in Canada, you will still get your Amazon Prime and Purolator shipments in the guaranteed time, usually faster. Competitive high speed Wifi services are available from Eastlink, Northerntel, and a local startup Neotech, which makes telecommuting for work or managing your own online business a simple and cost effective task. You can click on the links for each service provider to search for costs for the local P0L 1G0 postal code.

There are a number of grocery stores in neighbouring communities; Larabies Independent ( Kapuskasing 20 minutes West), Co-op Epicere (Moonbeam 6 minutes West), Freshmart & Sunshine Produce (Smooth Rock Falls 20 minutes East). There are also a number of large grocery chains and garden market stores in Timmins 1 1/2 hours south east. Grocery costs are no different here than they are anywhere else in Southwestern Ontario as the communities are located right along the Transnational Highway.

 

While there is no longer a school in the village, there is door to door school bus services to the French Catholic Primary School, 6 minutes away in Moonbeam. As well as to both English and French primary and secondary schools in Kapuskasing. You can get more information about the local schools Here.

 

Northern living is not for everyone, you have to love trees, peacefulness and snow, lots of snow. However if you live in the snow belt in Southwestern Ontario you are already used to it, but you will probably enjoy the break from the endless snow drifts and blowing snow the thick forests here provide. The temperatures do get pretty cold but if you dress properly there is nothing stopping you from enjoying the beautiful forests, trails, lakes and rivers in our communities year round.

 

Many people make the mistake of assuming that the costs of living in this region of Northern Ontario must be astronomical but they are often confusing our local communities with isolated communities along the James Bay coast and and even further north were access to the communities is seasonal, or which require fly-in or rail-in access. For more info about the Cost of Living in our Communuities

You will be pleasantly surprised by what our local communities have to offer being located directly on the path of a major transnational shipping route our communities have access to all the same goods that are available in the south we just get the beautiful scenery, fresh air and affordable housing that simply don’t exist in Southwestern Ontario.

Rêvez-vous de construire une nouvelle maison, mais vous êtes fatigué de chercher dans des terrains trop chers et surpeuplés? Fatigué d’avoir à choisir parmi une petite sélection de «maisons modèles» qui n’arrivent jamais vraiment à ressembler à la maison de rêve que vous avez dans votre imagination, mais parviennent toujours à ressembler à une centaine d’autres maisons dans le même lotissement. Vous cherchez une maison de construction neuve partout dans le sud-ouest de l’Ontario est suffisant pour vous donner des cheveux gris, que vous pourriez ne pas avoir tous perdu au moment où vous parvenez à terminer rembourser une hypothèque sur l’un d’eux. En 1984, une maison neuve de 3 chambres dans la région de Paisley Rd et de Whitelaw Rd à Guelph a coûté 65 000 $. À cette époque, Guelph était une échappatoire populaire pour les Torontois qui cherchaient à acheter leur première maison. Aujourd’hui, les maisons du même quartier se vendent 500 000 $. Vous pouvez épargner un peu en déménageant dans certaines petites collectivités, mais pour réaliser des économies réelles, vous devrez vous éloigner sérieusement de votre travail, ce qui signifie beaucoup de temps sur la route, dans la circulation et beaucoup d’usure sur ta voiture. Soyons honnête ici, vous savez exactement quel type de maison vous voulez, mais tous les lots de construction viennent avec des étiquettes de prix énormes, que vous achetiez dans un nouveau lotissement ou un lot distinct de votre propre. Ce morceau de terre peut être l’une des plus grandes étiquettes de prix en cours qui vient avec la construction de votre maison de rêve. Ce n’est pas seulement le coût de la terre elle-même, mais aussi le coût de l’obtention des permis de construire et de l’établissement des services publics, ainsi que les dépenses permanentes de taxes foncières élevées, ainsi que les coûts d’eau et d’égout.

Et si je vous disais qu’il y avait un endroit en Ontario, plein d’emplois bien rémunérés et d’occasions d’affaires pour les professionnels, dans un court trajet de 20 minutes, qui a aussi des terrains résidentiels à faible coût pour construire votre maison de rêve.

Et juste pour être clair ici, quand je dis à faible coût ce que je veux dire en réalité est gratuit.

Et si je vous disais que dans cette même communauté, vous pourriez profiter de plus de 1500 km de sentiers de motoneige OFSC, d’un accès à des rivières et des lacs sans fin pour la pêche et la navigation, et de 100 000 acres de forêt à explorer.

Et si je vous disais que cette petite communauté a aussi des rues sûres et calmes où les enfants se baladent toujours en vélo tout l’été, traînent sur les collines et patinent à la patinoire publique gratuite tout l’hiver. Un endroit où les voisins se connaissent généralement par leur nom, mais disent encore Bonjour et s’arrêtent pour discuter même s’ils ne le font pas.

Et si je vous disais que les taxes foncières annuelles combinées et les frais municipaux d’eau et d’égouts de votre propriété seraient probablement inférieurs à 2 000 $ par année.

Croyez-le ou non, la cerise sur le gâteau, vous pouvez arriver à cette petite communauté tranquille du centre-ville de Toronto en 3 heures, et sans embouteillages! C’est un voyage de 90 minutes sur l’un des trajets quotidiens de Porter Airlines à Timmins et un trajet paisible de 90 minutes à travers la magnifique forêt du Nord de l’Ontario. Vous pourriez même avoir la chance de voir une partie de la faune locale sur le chemin, comme Orignals et Ours peuvent souvent être vus en profitant de l’herbe sur le bord de l’autoroute.

C’est plus rapide que d’essayer de se rendre à Huntsville trop cher du centre-ville de T.O.

Vous avez probablement entendu parler de la ville de Smooth Rock Falls au cours des derniers mois et des deux communiqués de plus de 32 terrains municipaux vacants qu’ils ont mis en vente. La ville a connu un tel succès spectaculaire avec ces deux annonces récentes que le terrain offert a été acheté à des prix incroyablement bas!La ville a même mis en place un certain nombre d’incitatifs pour encourager de nouvelles constructions commerciales et résidentielles dans leur communauté. Smooth Rock Falls, cependant, n’est pas la seule ville de cette région avec de bonnes affaires pour ceux qui veulent construire leurs maisons ou leurs entreprises dans ces communautés. Voyage 20 minutes à l’ouest de Smooth Rock Falls le long de la route Transnational 11 et vous rencontrerez le beau petit village de Fauquier niché le long des rives de la rivière Groundhog. Il serait facile de rejeter cette communauté tranquille et bien entretenue, mais elle contient un long secret qui n’obtient pas beaucoup de temps d’antenne, et un peu plus qu’une brève mention n’importe où sur Internet.

Le secret

La ville possède un certain nombre de terrains à bâtir appartenant à la municipalité, vacants, viabilisés et résidentiels disponibles pour les familles qui souhaitent construire une résidence dans la communauté. L’étiquette de prix pour ces lots de construction ….. 0,00 $.

Vous avez bien lu 0,00 $, ce n’est pas une faute de frappe, le terrain pour construire votre maison de rêve est disponible gratuitement.

Vous vous demandez probablement ce qui ne va pas avec le village qu’ils sont prêts à donner des terres gratuitement? Eh bien, laissez-moi vous assurer qu’il n’y a rien de mal avec ce petit village, en fait il y a beaucoup plus de choses à faire que vous ne le pensez;

La ville est à seulement 20 minutes du centre commercial local de Kapuskasing, où se trouvent certains des plus gros employeurs de la région. Il y a une demande pour les professionnels et les métiers spécialisés dans toute la communauté, et avec l’annonce récente de la construction d’une nouvelle installation médicale de marijuana à Kapuskasing en 2018 apportant plus de 60 emplois, les perspectives d’emploi ne cessent d’augmenter. (Nous publions un blog hebdomadaire des offres d’emploi actuellement disponibles alors assurez-vous de vérifier, vous pouvez y accéder de ICI.)

Le Village de Fauquier offre des commodités étonnantes qui sont à quelques pas de n’importe où dans le village. Une patinoire en plein air magnifiquement entretenue avec un club-house avec patinage libre, un terrain de basketball, un parc de planches à roulettes et une aire de jeux.

Le centre communautaire situé au milieu du village derrière l’église abrite également les bureaux de la ville et la bibliothèque publique étonnamment bien garnie qui offre un grand choix de livres en anglais et en français pour tous les âges en plus d’un DVD très à jour et Une collection de livres audio bilingue qui rivaliserait avec celle de nombreuses bibliothèques de grandes villes. Les résidents du village peuvent également devenir membres de la bibliothèque publique de Kapuskasing, ce qui offre un accès supplémentaire aux médias numériques Overdrive et à d’autres ressources de bibliothèque en ligne.

Il y a une rampe de mise à l’eau et une aire de pique-nique donnant accès à la rivière Groundhog, ainsi qu’un accès aux grands lacs situés dans la collectivité. Chaque été, l’aire de pique-nique accueille le marché hebdomadaire des agriculteurs, et un certain nombre d’événements communautaires bien fréquentés ont lieu tout au long de l’année.

Le magasin du coin local abrite également une agence de Postes Canada et L.C.B.O. Agence.

Le service postal est aussi rapide ici que partout ailleurs au Canada, vous obtiendrez toujours vos envois Amazon Prime et Purolator dans le temps garanti, généralement plus rapidement. Des services de Wi-Fi haute vitesse concurrentiels sont offerts par Eastlink, Northerntel, et une entreprise locale, Neotech. Ce qui rend le télétravail pour le travail ou la gestion de votre entreprise en ligne une tâche simple et rentable. Vous pouvez cliquer sur les liens de chaque fournisseur de services pour rechercher les coûts du code postal local P0L 1G0.

Il y a un certain nombre d’épiceries dans les communautés avoisinantes; Larabies Independent (Kapuskasing 20 minutes à l’ouest), Co-op Epicere (Moonbeam 6 minutes à l’ouest), Freshmart & Sunshine Produce (Smooth Rock Falls 20 minutes à l’est). Il y a aussi un certain nombre de grandes chaînes d’épicerie et des magasins de marché de jardin à Timmins 1 1/2 heures au sud-est. Les coûts d’épicerie ne sont pas différents ici que partout ailleurs dans le Sud-Ouest de l’Ontario, car les collectivités sont situées le long de la route Transnationale.

Bien qu’il n’y ait plus d’école dans le village, il y a des services de transport scolaire de porte à porte à l’école primaire catholique française, à 6 minutes à Moonbeam. Ainsi qu’aux écoles primaires et secondaires anglaises et françaises de Kapuskasing. Vous pouvez obtenir plus d’informations sur les écoles locales ICI.

La vie dans le Nord n’est pas pour tout le monde, il faut aimer les arbres, la tranquillité et la neige, beaucoup de neige. Cependant, si vous vivez dans la ceinture de neige du sud-ouest de l’Ontario, vous y êtes déjà habitué, mais vous apprécierez probablement la pause des interminables dérives de neige et de la poudrerie que procurent les forêts épaisses. Les températures sont plutôt froides, mais si vous vous habillez correctement, rien ne vous empêche de profiter des belles forêts, des sentiers, des lacs et des rivières de nos collectivités tout au long de l’année.

Beaucoup de gens font l’erreur de supposer que le coût de la vie dans cette région du Nord de l’Ontario est astronomique, mais ils confondent souvent nos communautés locales avec des communautés isolées le long de la côte de la Baie James et même plus au nord, ou qui nécessitent un accès par avion ou par rail.

Vous serez agréablement surpris par ce que nos communautés locales ont à offrir étant situé directement sur le chemin d’une importante route maritime transnationale où nos communautés ont accès à tous les mêmes biens qui sont disponibles dans le sud, nous obtenons juste les beaux paysages, l’air frais et des logements abordables qui n’existent tout simplement pas dans le sud-ouest de l’Ontario.
