If you’ve been following the Ottawa Real Estate market it probably won’t come as a surprise that both unit sales and prices were up last month, in spite of continuing issues with low supply. Heading into the fall months we don’t see any signs of our fast paced market slowing down. If you have any questions, we’re always here to chat!
“August’s ten percent increase in unit sales from 2018 is over twice the percentage increase experienced last year and three times higher than the previous August,” reports the Ottawa Real Estate Board President. “However, although the numbers are up, Ottawa continues to undergo issues with inventory as the limited supply persists.”
“Year to date average prices, which are more reliable indicators than monthly average prices, show steady, reasonable, and sustainable increases. We don’t anticipate there will be a major correction in the foreseeable future,” Delahunt maintains.

The calculation of the average sale price is based on the total dollar volume of all properties sold. Price and conditions will vary from neighbourhood to neighbourhood.
