Real Estate Market Overview

The real estate market in the city of Ottawa is generally steady. Sales have been surpassing what they were previously, and the majority of these sales were on residential properties. Some of the most common types of housing found in the city are single-detached homes and townhouses. These types of housing are commonly found in the suburbs. In the central area of the city, it is more common to find high-rise and low-rise apartments. New construction on residential properties has been high, particularly on condominiums. The availability keeps the price of the condominiums quite constant.


Rental Market

The city has been experiencing a 3% vacancy rate, which has declined from previous years. Rental housing is more commonly found in the central area of the city. With the installation of the new light rail transit system in the city, more companies are focusing on building apartmentcomplexes close to the system. As a resultof older demographics having a weaker employment rate, they are renting for a longer period of time. As for the younger demographic, they have a higher employment rate, so a larger percentage of this group is renting. All of these factors are helping to drive the construction of rental buildings.
