Where Is Owen Sound?

Owen Sound and the surrounding area is warmly called home by over 30,000 people living at the base of Georgian Bay, where the Sydenham River and Potawatomi River converge. In the summer months you will find Owen Sound to be a thriving city in close proximity to Sauble Beach, a very popular destination for both local traffic and tourists alike, as well as many smaller towns with lots of activities and venues for recreation and relaxation. Owen Sound serves as a meeting point of four of Ontario’s provincial highways: Highway 6&10 from the south, Highway 26 from the east, and Highway 21 from the west.
Being established in 1851, Owen Sound includes many different types and styles of homes for sale. A prospective buyer will find century homes with original hardwood flooring and crown mouldings, intimate war-time houses suitable for retirement living or small families, split level bungalows, updated retro houses and a more modern flare of newly built houses in suburbs throughout the town.

On top of that, you could also qualify for an additional $25,000 in financing. You don’t even have to have the whole 5% up front. All you need to get started is $3,500 when you sign the Agreement to Purchase and Sale, and then you can pay $1,000 a month after that until you reach the required 5%.
