With interest rates potentially holding steady the Ottawa market may be on the verge of heating up. Buyers are still super cautious but there are plenty of well-qualified buyers in the marketplace right now. Judging by full open houses and good showing activity. The challenge is that no buyer wants to make a large purchase now only to see things further reduced in 6 months from now. So many are just waiting. The ones that are making offers may just be rewarded. Warren Buffet always said to buy while others are weary. The thing about real estate is that we know we are way off the peak and the chances are that in the next few years we will be up and over the earlier highs of 2022.

If I was to sum up our market in one word it would be cautious. The numbers reflect that. The price of a residential home is down 12% from January 2022, down to $676,272, condo pricing is down as well, 8% from January 2022, sitting at $412,244. In terms of units they are also down from January 2022, 30% down for residential and 46.9% down for condo units sold.
