Ottawa Market Update, April 2015

Posted on: May 7th, 2015 by Chris Scott

The real estate market is in full swing at the moment. We had a really busy April. I was involved with 5 separate multiple bid situations in April. This is the surest sign that buyers are out of hibernation and eager to find something. This past month there were over 1570 residential properties sold. This is above the 5 year average for April of 1,531. Good sign that Ottawa remains a very stable place to invest in real estate.

The average sale price of a residential-class property sold in April in the Ottawa area was $403,239, an increase of 0.9 per cent over April 2014. The average sale price for a condominium-class property was $265,371, an increase of 2.7 per cent over April 2014.  Higher end properties are starting to move which likely accounts for the residential average sale price entering the $400,000 range.

Average cumulative days on market has improved in April, coming in at 74 days, compared to 83 in March. Properties are moving faster and inventory is plentiful, with just under 9,000 residential properties, including condos, available for sale going into May. Every neighbourhood/segment has very different variables to consider. For information on whats happening in your area feel free to get in touch.
