We just wanted to take a few minutes to update you on the current state of the housing market in case you’re planning on entering anytime soon as a buyer or seller.

An Overview of the Current State of the Ottawa Real Estate Market

Here are the highlights of the most recent report I read from the Ottawa Sun, based on data from the Ottawa Real Estate Board:

  • In September, 5,139 units were sold, down from 7,172 in August.
  • Still, the average sale price of residential properties was $356,915, up 3 percent compared to the same time last year.
  • Those homes priced between the $400,000 to $500,000 range are evidently having the hardest time finding prospective buyers.
  • Meanwhile, homes priced between $299,000 and $399,000 are seeing an increase in demand and sales
  • And according to the latest data available, the average price for a 500-square-foot downtown condo is about $275,000, while smaller condos are being advertised for about $179,000.
