April Ottawa Real Estate Summary
The month of April has been monumental for the real estate industry in Ontario. New provincial real estate policies and an ongoing conversation about cooling the real estate market in Toronto are continually bringing real estate to the news. Meanwhile, here in Ottawa, the April resale market in 2017 did not break any records. Nonetheless, it continues to experience an ever-increasing trend of sales activity.
According to Rick Eisert, the President of the Ottawa Real Estate Board, “sales activity is indicating a trend towards a seller’s market. Lower inventory, combined with increased demand, is creating many more multiple offer situations and quicker moving properties, with the average cumulative days on market dipping to just 71 days.” Beyond the growing sales trends in the Ottawa real estate market, the Ottawa Real Estate Board Members helped Ottawa residents rent 865 properties since January 2017.
