Latest Ottawa Market News!

The November market statistics are out.  I had been watching to see if some of the trends I had noticed in October would materialize again in November - and they did!  Please check out the video and feel free to call with any questions on your home or neighborhood!  The market is still strong and there is plenty of opportunity!  Call me today at 613-270-9559 or email at lorie@homewithlorie.com

August Real Estate Market was pretty impressive!

August 2016 was THE best August ever in homes sold for Ottawa!  A 16.3% increase over last year. The volume is atypical of August, with 1,484 homes sold.  Interestingly, as I have been watching this segment of the market, wondering if B.C.'s additional tax for foreign investors may impact other major markets....there were 14 homes (including condos) sold worth more than $1,000,000. That's 6 more than last year....hmmmm.

It's taking on average 90 days to sell a home in Ottawa year to date.

Year to date the average price of a residential home is $395,178.  The average price of a condo year to date is $261,346.  Both averages are less than a 1% increase for the year.  But that is averages - not specifics.  So call me for specifics on your home and neighborhood.

I think the most insightful statistic is the inventory on the market currently.  And here lies the opportunity for our clients considering whether they should sell now or wait until spring - there is 17.5% LESS residential homes on the market right now, and 11.1% LESS condos.  I think its a NOW time to discuss your specific situation and home.  Don't hesitate to call us at 613-270-9559.  Let's chat!

Fall market is here.  And its strong and has opportunity!
