Prices here can run the gamut from $115,000 to over $1 million, depending on what you are looking for. There are a number of waterfront condominium developments, some completed and some still being completed which are very suitable for those who want the luxury of waterfront without the upkeep, but all of these are considered "pricey" - not just to buy, but to maintain. Condominiums typically have a monthly charge for "condo fees", and very often these fees do not include taxes or utilities, so on top of your monthly mortgage fees, you need to factor in the condo fees and cost of utilities as well.
Most of the local realty companies have websites online, and many individual agents have their own MLS site online. Initial steps you can take are to visit the websites and look up the type of property you want in the location you want. Any property listed with an MLS # will be available to view on their site, and give the listing realtor and agent, and how to contact them.
Not every property is listed under the MLS listings, as some are exclusive listings with one agent or realtor, and you may only find those properties by talking to an agent.
As well as the MLS site, you can view a copy of the Orillia Packet Real Estate Guide online, which comes out every week with a selection of listed properties, and includes notices of open houses. For those who just want to drive around and visit open houses to get a feel for the different areas in town, this guide will prove to be useful. As well as being available online, you'll find paper-boxes throughout Orillia with free copies of the guide, or you can stop in at any real estate office in town and pick one up.
If you know someone in Orillia, ask for their recommendations if they have any. Anyone who has experience with the various agents or realty companies will be happy to tell you who they used and how their experience was.

Along with these larger concerns, you may find some independent brokers by using the Real Estate Guide or MLS site. Many of the local agents have areas of specialization, like commercial properties or business, residential or investment properties, so it's a good idea to find an agent who handles the types of listings you are interested in. If you are looking at relocating a business, or at buying a small business or leasing a business location you'd be wise to find an agent dealing with properties of that nature on a regular basis, since they will be familiar with city by-laws and local business requirements.
Most agents will be able to point you towards local lawyers and mortgagors, or home-inspection agents, as well as land-surveyors.
