As predicted, the supply and demand situation in many parts of Ottawa (not everywhere), is creating a sellers market. Great for the sellers and a wonderful way for us when we list homes, to strategize and achieve the top price possible for our clients.
We have had $30,000 over list, a townhome which last year would not sell over $270,000, get $40,000 more than 2017....can you imagine? And the latest one, well let's just say, almost 6 figures over asking......almost like winning second prize in the lottery! Needless to say, it is a situation which needs managing and strategizing. Now more than ever, experience and a great realtor will help you net more than you thought possible!
And then as a buyer, you have to be ready for this - and we have been uber successful with our buyers, because we have prepared them! It is not a time to be traditional in one's approach and laissez faire, otherwise that home purchase will remain a dream and not a reality!
Either way, we know how important it is to align yourself with a realtor who can help you achieve your goals and dreams. We humbly think that we can help, and would love to sit with you and discuss how. I find the market exciting, because I love the dynamics and energy, but I know you may find it a bit intimidating. We are used to that, and can walk you through it all, at your pace.
And if you don't want to move, but want to take advantage of your home's value increasing - we have some thoughts on that too! Call or text us anytime. Michael and I are at your service.
