Halloween has not scared away home buyers

Members of the Ottawa Real Estate Board sold 1,383 residential properties in October through the Board's Multiple Listing ServiceĀ® System, compared with 1,237 in October 2017, an increase of 11.8 per cent. The five-year average for October sales is 1,223. October's sales included 1,059 in the residential property class, a rise of 8.5 per cent from a year ago, and 324 in the condominium property class, an increase of 24.1 per cent from October 2017.

"October's sales are truly indicative of the fast-paced market we have experienced for much of 2018," points out Ottawa Real Estate Board President, Ralph Shaw. "In some pockets of the city, listings are not lingering on the market. Year-to-date average Days on Market (DOMs) are down 14% from 45 to 39 days for residential homes and 24% from 68 to 51 days for condominiums."

"However, lack of supply continues to be a major driving factor in Ottawa's real estate market," he adds. "If we look back to 2015 and 2016, our current active inventory is less than half of what we had then, and it's not improving. Compared to last year, condo inventory is down 34.5% while residential inventory is 17.5% lower than October 2017."
