OTTAWA MARKET UPDATE FOR JANUARY 2019
January is usually one of the slowest months of the year in real estate and although we had record low temperatures and lots of snowfall… the Ottawa market was hot. In January the residential and condo property classes there were 820 homes sold. That is a large jump to a 15.8% increase in units sold over January 2018. This is the highest increase Ottawa has experienced in decades. This could be a sign of things to come for our 2019 housing market.
The average sale price for homes in Ottawa continues to rise over last year’s numbers. In January we saw a 1.5% increase in the residential class property and in the condo property class we saw an increase of 7.7% over January 2018.
The $300,000 to $449,000 range remains the most active price point in the residential market contributing to 42.5% of homes sold. The $175,000 to $274,999 price range was the most active price point for the condos market in Ottawa, accounting for almost 54.1% of the units sold.
