A Slow Condo Market= A Great Time to Invest


According to reporter Patrick Langston’s article in the Ottawa Citizen this past Saturday, the condo market hasn’t “fallen on it’s face, but has definitely stumbled.  Condo starts have plummeted with lots of inventory on the shelf, and several projects have either been put on hold. or increasingly, converted to rental properties.”

CMHC echo’s these comments stating that the number of unsold units remains high from a historical standpoint.  In fact, the agency recently warned that the overabundance of unsold units and those coming on-stream could put the health of Ottawa’s housing market at moderate risk.

But what this means for investors and buyers alike is that now is a great time to buy low, and take advantage of locations and lifestyle that might have been out of reach just a few years ago.

High Ceilings

Clever Storage

Open Spaces, Flow from Rooms, Light and Airy

Large Expansive Windows

Large Balcony

Lots of Natural Light

Avoid the First Few Floors to be away from Noise
