September Sales Continue Strong

Sales continued strong in September despite the low inventory we have seen throughout the year, something we haven’t seen in almost 15 years. “It’s quite amazing, with the limited supply, that the market is still moving well with purchasers finding properties that meet their requirements,” notes Dwight Delahunt, president of the Ottawa Real Estate Board.

1,549 residential properties sold in September 2019 compared with 1,386 in September 2018, an increase of 11.8 per cent. This included 1,113 residential properties (up 6.9 per cent from 2018), and 436 condominium properties (an increase of 26.4 per cent from 2018). September’s average sale price for a condominium was $309,373, an increase of 9 per cent from last year while the average sale price of a residential-class property was $487,438, an increase of 8 per cent. 

“Now that condominium prices have recovered, we see condo sellers jumping back into the market to take advantage of that, and as a result, condo sales have been very robust and have again led the way in September’s unit sales,” Delahunt suggests.

The most prevalent price point in the residential market was $350,000 to $499,999, accounting for 43.5 per cent of September’s sales while 28 per cent of residential sales were in the $500,000 to $749,999 range. The most active price point in the condominium category was $225,000-$349,999, accounting for 56 per cent of the units sold.

“Of course, in this kind of market where the process can be quite accelerated, you must be ready to make a decision quickly and be poised to act straightaway. That’s why it’s prudent to work with a REALTOR® — home sellers can expose their properties immediately, and buyers are able to have instant access to the latest listings posted to the MLS® System,” Delahunt advises.
