Current Properties for Sale in Magnetawan

Magnetawan currently has 31 property listings on the M.L.S.® from the Lakelands real estate board. January is usually a low listing month so it’s not surprising the numbers are so low. In the peak summer months there is often well over 100 properties on the market with about half being waterfront.

Of the 31 Magnetawan listings, 12 are waterfront properties ranging in price from $415,000 for a vacant lot on Lake Cecebe to $1,599,000 for a year round cottage or home on Neighick (Beaver) Lake.

The 19 non-waterfront properties range in price from $49,000 for a vacant lot near Whalley Lake to $995,000 for a residential / commercial property on Highway #124 just west of town.

Sales of both cottages and homes in Magnetawan were at a multi-year low in 2023 with only 35 transactions, 18 of which were waterfront. For reference, this is about half the cottage sales compared to the last few years. Prior to the covid frenzy about 20-25 lakefront properties sold each year with the majority being on Lake Cecebe followed by Ahmic Lake, Horn Lake and Neighick Lake. The smaller waterways like Crawford, Whalley and Midlothian lakes are a small percentage of overall market.
