OTTAWA MARKET BLOWING UP!
It’s early February. COVID-19 is still present and accounted for with newer more contagious strains growing in numbers. Some areas are just starting to relax some of the strictest lockdown measures we have seen.
All of this and the Ottawa real estate market is booming. Both the rise in value and number of units have risen dramatically. The average house price in Ottawa is now over $677,197 up 31.2% over last January and units sold were up 21% over last January.
The stats are a little bit misleading as there was an unusual number of $1,000,000+ homes sold in January but even eliminating those home, the rise in value is still substantial.
Condos have not fared as well but have still had decent increases in value. These properties has increased a modest 12.8% to an average price of $380,366. However, the number of units sold has increased dramatically by 31.2% over last January. There has been lots of condos on the market which has kept the increase in value down but as the stats show, they are stating to get bought up and this can only lead to higher values.
