April Residential Resales in a Flux
May 4, 2022

Members of the Ottawa Real Estate Board sold 1,889 residential properties in April through the Board’s Multiple Listing Service® System, compared with 2,394 in April 2021, a decrease of 21 per cent. April’s sales included 1,419 in the residential-property class, down 23 per cent from a year ago, and 470 in the condominium-property category, a decrease of 13 per cent from April 2021. The five-year average for total unit sales in April is 1,849.

The average sale price for a condominium-class property in April was $473,702, an increase of 11 per cent from 2021, while the average sale price for a residential-class property was $829,318, increasing 12 per cent from a year ago. With year-to-date average sale prices at $830,588 for residential and $469,603 for condominiums, these values represent a 13 per cent and 12 percent increase over 2021, respectively.

“Although the number of new listings in April (2,846) was down by 11% from 2021, the number of properties that entered the market was still 10% over the 5-year average (2,600), and 214 units more than what was added to the housing stock in March. This has increased Ottawa’s months of inventory to just under a month’s supply. In March, it was just over two weeks. This is good news for potential Buyers as they will have more options and more opportunities to enter the market.”

Craig Dow turned that scary first time home buying process into a streamlined process. Always prompt with a great attention to detail. Good at asking the right questions to help you understand how you really feel. Patient and willing to work with you until the right property comes along. Quickly learns what you tend to like and dislike based off of your (sometimes non-verbal) reactions to previous showings. Works well under strict timelines and takes a lot of the stress out of the situation as he is prepared for seemingly anything and everything that could come up.

Craig helped me purchase my very first condo back in 2012. He was very patient, helpful and knowledgeable as he answered any and all questions and concerns that I had. He is very prompt, thorough and diligent in everything he does. He also provided me with many options for potential homes that he thought would suit my needs, which is why I didn't hesitate to ask him to be my realtor again when I moved last year. I have thoroughly enjoyed the smoothness and easiness both times that he has helped me and would highly recommend him to anyone looking for a similar experience!

Craig has gone above and beyond my expectations. From the very first conversation, Craig was intuitive, caring, and patient. He was honest and upfront about everything. Anything he didn't know/wasn't aware of, he was willing to admit, find out and got back to me very promptly. I couldn't have asked for a better Realtor and very grateful for everything Craig has done for me.

We were looking for a rural home and had Craig drive us around the Ottawa Valley for a few months, usually taking up all hours of the evening. He was incredibly patient, kind and honest when it was needed. Our time with Craig was enjoyable, and when it came time to get down to business he was incredibly professional, answered all questions we had (we had a lot as first time home buyers). Because of Craig's advice, we were able to land our first dream home. I truly believe that if we didn't listen to Craig we may not be in the house we are in now. I will thank him forever for that. Thank you for being assertive and knowledgeable. I would absolutely recommend Craig to anyone purchasing a home.
