Relocation Under Tough Circumstances

Posted on: February 28th, 2018 by Chris Scott


I recently had a family get in touch me who were relocating from Vancouver. She took a new position with the government here in Ottawa. She was already living here with the family in a small rental and he was still in Vancouver. What they didn’t realize is how hot the detached house market was in their budget (under 550k) in Barrhaven and Riverside South neighbourhoods.

As soon as we even looked at something it would seem there was an offer on the table. Even houses that had been on the market for a long time. It took 3 offers to finally secure a great home for this wonderful family.

Relocations this year are going to be more challenging in Ottawa due to the hot market. I am hopeful we will have more inventory come to Springtime. If you are relocated this Spring with the military, RCMP, or government I may have some exclusive homes for you to look at. I am building a list for these clients to try and match them up with homes that are off the market.

If you are relocating to Ottawa keep us in mind. I can always be reached via email at or on my cell at 613-863-6999
