The 300k to 450k price range in residential properties accounted for 45% of all sales. This is a very active price range right now for Ottawa real estate. So hot right now! The condo market has made a great comeback and there are lots of factors to remain bullish on our local economy.  It is a complex real estate market right now. Lots of moving parts on almost every deal. Including new financing requirements, shorter conditional periods, foreign buyers, and multiple offers. Lots to navigate right now. It is more important now to have the expertise of a great Realtor if you plan on buying or selling real estate in Ottawa.
