October was a slower than usual month for real estate transactions. Most buyers have put their home search on hold and are hoping to see the market crash or low rates to return. In my opinion, the market will not crash, and rates will likely remain high for at least the next 6 months or longer.

The Ottawa real estate market has flipped over to a full-on buyer’s market! The median list-to-sale price ratio was approximately 92% for the month of September. This means many homes in the city are selling below the list price and in many cases with a conditional offer – which was next to impossible in the earlier part of this year.
