July 2023 Ottawa Real Estate Market Update

Finding Equilibrium in Demand and Supply


Hello there, it’s Dave here, presenting the latest Ottawa real estate market update for July 2023. In this edition, we’ll explore the recent market trends, delve into pricing shifts, and decode the intricate interplay between buyer demand and property supply. So, let’s dive right in!

Market Activity and Improved Prospects

In the previous month, we saw 1,658 homes find new owners through the multiple listing service. Although this number is slightly below the five-year average of 1,881, it’s worth noting that this marks an improvement. This year has shown a slow pace in terms of units and volume sold, but signs of progress are beginning to shine through.

Stable Pricing Trends

Turning our attention to pricing, Freehold homes are now averaging just above $746,000, which reflects a 4% decrease. On the other hand, condos are priced at an average of slightly over $448,000, indicating a 4% increase. This stable pricing landscape hints at a market that has steadied itself after a period of correction.

Supply and Demand Dynamics

Examining inventory levels and average days on the market, we find intriguing insights. For Freehold properties, the inventory translates to around 2.1 months, a number that leans towards sellers. Average days on the market for Freehold properties are approximately 23 days. Condos fare even better, with a mere 1.4 months of inventory and around 27 days for average days on the market.

Market Dynamics and Future Predictions

So, what’s the essence of the Ottawa real estate market at this juncture? The answer lies in a mix of strong buyer demand and limited supply. Efforts have been made to manage interest rates, but this has chiefly affected buyer affordability without addressing the supply shortage. In the short term, this dynamic keeps the market robust, with prices neither poised for rapid surges nor sharp declines.

Long-Term Outlook: A Tangible Asset’s Strength

In the grander scheme, real estate has an enduring track record of appreciating over time. The underlying factor here is its tangible nature—it’s a real asset that meets a fundamental need. Everyone requires a place to call home, and the demand for such places ensures the long-term stability and potential for growth in real estate values.
