We’ll help you take advantage of the HOT Ottawa market





Where Vancouver and Toronto markets are cooling off, Ottawa’s real estate continues to enjoy month-over-month increases.

Many homes in desirable neighborhoods are selling in a matter of days and for tens of thousands more than the asking price. Consider these stats:


The average price for a home in Ottawa jumped from $396,266 to $434,502 from June 2016 to June 2017 – almost nine percent, according to the Ottawa Real Estate Board


A Hintonburg duplex listed in the $400,000s sold in the $500,000s – $100,000 over asking


A bungalow in Bel-Air Heights was listed at $347,000 and sold for $400,000 in five days

While these are encouraging stats, the bottom line is this: despite cyclical ups and downs, real estate prices always go up over time.
