TOUGH OTTAWA MARKET FOR MILITARY CLIENTS
Right now I am sitting at a home inspection as I type this. I am here with some great military clients who are relocating from Petawawa. We have secured a nice townhouse in the KANATA neighbourhood of Morgan’s Grant. It is about 10mins to the New DND headquarters at the Nortel campus. Securing this home has been a challenge.
The townhouse market right now in Barrhaven, Stittsville, and Kanata is as hot as it has ever been. Townhomes in these neighbourhoods over the past 2 months are selling in 6 Days for an average of $3,500 over asking. We have been competing against as many as 11 offers on previous offer attempts. I have never seen anything like it for this segment of the Ottawa real estate market. On a house hunting trip, this can make things very stressful and can be challenging to leave Ottawa with a house. These are the fall market conditions right now. I am really hoping that by the time our Spring House hunting trips begin there will be more inventory available.
I will be starting a database of CAF members who have a high probability of being transferred next Spring. My objective will be to have some off-market military listings that can be sold to other military buyers coming in on their transfer. Basically making it as easy as possible for both military buyers and sellers.
