OTTAWA SPRING MARKET UPDATE
When relocating to another city it is important to know what is going on in that real estate market. We wanted to share our most recent update and video, to assist you with planning for your house hunting trip to Ottawa.
Things are picking up as we head into the Spring season. We have seen a 52% increase in transactions from January to February of 2022 via MLS. This is a strong indicator that the Spring market has sprung.
The number of new listings in February (1,762) offers some hope for prospective Buyers. At 4% higher than the five-year average and 12% higher than February 2021, it resulted in an almost 10% increase in residential-class property inventory compared to last year at this time.
There is hope that the trend of increased new listings will continue so that the housing stock can be replenished.
We are now sitting at less than a month’s worth of inventory, which is still looking like a seller’s market. This means buyers need to have all of their financing set up so that they can move quickly in this market.
Our team has strategies that can help both our buyers and our sellers in this type of market. Please reach out if you have any questions about the current market or anything else we can help with.
