May MLS® Home Sales in Ottawa Smooth and Cautious
June 6, 2024

The number of homes sold through the MLS® System of the Ottawa Real Estate Board (OREB) totaled 1,545 units in May 2024. This was a decrease of 9.2% from May 2023.

The average price of homes sold in May 2024 was $690,683 increasing 0.8% from May 2023. The more comprehensive year-to-date average price was $679,862, increasing by 1.8% from the first five months of 2023. The dollar volume of all home sales in May 2024 was $1.06 billion, down 8.5% from the same month in 2023.

“Ottawa’s early spring market was unsurprisingly steady,” says OREB President Curtis Fillier. “The increase in new listings indicate that sellers are more confident that properties are moving as market activity picks up. Some buyers, however, were likely waiting for the Bank of Canada’s interest rate announcement to see if it would affect their purchasing power. The first interest rate cut in four years is good news, but expectations still need to be managed as long as supply issues and high home prices persist.”

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.
