Ottawa housing history (as charted for the past 50 years) tends towards steady, long term growth.
The longer a property is listed the more chance there is of a lower sale price.
Please contact me for a hard copy if this chart depicting listing activity is too hard to view on-screen.
The growth trend in the Ottawa market has been very positive over the past 7 years.
Historically sales in the housing market peaks in April, May and June.
Interestingly Ottawa does not experience the wild shifts that are reported in other markets.
