Tornado aftermath: What to do if your home or property has been damaged

It could take months, even a year, to rebuild what's likely to be tens of millions of dollars in tornado and wind damage across the National Capital Region, according to an insurance expert who was touring affected areas this weekend.

What struck Craig Stewart, the Insurance Bureau of Canada's lead for all natural disasters in the country, after visiting Dunrobin, Goulbourn and Gatineau was "the explosive force with which these tornadoes hit on Friday night."

As with all natural disasters, the tornadoes were indiscriminate.

"It doesn't matter if you're living in an affluent, million-dollar home or in a low-rise tenement building, you are just as vulnerable in either case, and it's remarkable that there weren't any fatalities resulting from this storm, given how damaging it was," Stewart said.
But unlike wildfires in Fort McMurray or in British Columbia, or even the floods that swamped Ottawa-Gatineau, there was little forewarning, Stewart said. Fires and floods approach the community in a way that gives people "time to gear up."

Autumn Leaves are falling...Home prices are not

Members of the Ottawa Real Estate Board sold 1,393 residential properties in September through the Board's Multiple Listing ServiceĀ® System, compared with 1,383 in September 2017, an increase of only 0.7 per cent. The five-year average for September sales is 1,303. September's sales included 1,046 in the residential property class, a decrease of 2.5 per cent from a year ago, and 347 in the condominium property class, an increase of 11.9 percent from September 2017.

"We continue to experience supply-side issues going into our fall market. The fact is, the number of residential sales would be much higher had we more robust inventory to draw from," states Ottawa Real Estate Board President Ralph Shaw. "Condos continue to represent a greater proportion of year-to-date unit sales with a 15 per cent increase from this time in 2017."

The average sale price of a residential-class property sold in September in the Ottawa area was $449,613, an increase of 7.9 per cent over September 2017. The average sale price for a condominium-class property was $282,781, an increase of 7.6 per cent from this month last year.*
