Big Jump in Ottawa Real Estate Sale Prices in January 2020
The number of homes sold in January 2020 (780) were slightly less than January 2019 (817) — about 4.5% less. That being said, we were still slightly over the moving 5-year average of 713. See video and additional commentary and statistics below.
It’s getting colder, but Ottawa Real Estate is heating up!
In the video and blog below, Dan gives his perspective on current happenings in Ottawa Real Estate. There is still a historic low inventory of house listings. The few new listings are often sold over asking price with multiple offers.

Are you considering a move to or within Ottawa? Is an Ottawa Urban Neighbourhood being considered? Want to walk to work or school? Ottawa used to be a small city with a well defined core of urban neighbourhoods. Certainly Centretown, the Golden Triangle, the Glebe, Lowertown and Sandy Hill would have been considered “urban” for the last 60 to 100 plus years.
Deciding to return to Ottawa a decade or more ago, I found Dan most helpful and knowledgeable about the local housing market. When it appeared that suitable bungalows were in short supply in my preferred area (i.e. near a golf course), he assisted me in purchasing a lot in a new sub division and a perfect bungalow was soon built for me.

Great photos showing off all corners of the house, help with showcasing my home, good advice on staging, and realistic pricing combined with a current demand for this type of property all led to a quick and painless conclusion to the adventure.
