Okay and now we're going to look at #Barrhaven and #Kanata and #Kanata gave us quite a surprise in #September2019 Now what's it important is to see that this is this is data for the month of September and for the condos I have actually data a Year-To-Date for the condos so that's considering January to September of 2019 to January to September of 2018. Okay well let's do the monthly stats first. So, residential average sale price for 2018 was $434,703 and for #September2019 it was $466,089 which is an increase of 7.2 percent. For the number of sales for residential category it was 101 in 2018 and 98 in 2019. So, we sold 3% less homes this year than the last year in September. Now, for the year-to-date numbers we have #condo average sale prices in 2018 $234,275 and in 2019 we have $264,516 which is an increase of 12.9%. For the #condo number of sales in September 2018 we had 209 and #September2019 we had 196 which is a decrease of 6.2% Now, look at #Kanata in 2018 the average sale price was $445,360.

So, this is the total average for #Ottawa $487k, in #Barrhaven $466k and this one gave quite a surprise $528k Okay! Last year, it was at $445 so something happened in #Kanata more homes were sold, better prices for the sellers.

Official OREB's Media Release Follows: 

Released OTTAWA, October 2, 2019 

"The Ottawa Real Estate Board is Ottawa’s largest trade association with over 3,150 sales  representatives and brokers in the Ottawa area. Members of the Board are also members of the Canadian Real Estate Association. The MLS® system is a Member-based service, paid for by the REALTOR® Members of the Ottawa Real  Estate Board. The MLS® mark symbolizes the cooperation among REALTORS® to affect the purchase and  sale of real estate through real estate services provided by REALTORS®. MLS® commercial and residential listings are available on

Members of  the  Ottawa Real Estate Board sold 1,549 residential properties in September through the Board’s Multiple Listing Service® System,  compared with 1,386 in September 2018, an increase of 11.8 per  cent.  September’s  sales included 1,113 in the residential-property class, up 6.9 per cent from a year ago, and 436 in the  condominium-property category,  an increase of 26.4  per cent from September 2018.The five-year average for September unit sales is 1,385. “Despite a challenging year of historically low inventory, September’s sales continue to be  extremely strong, the likes of which we haven’t seen in the past 15 years,” acknowledges  President of the Ottawa Real Estate Board. “It’s quite amazing, with the limited supply, that the market is still moving well with purchasers finding properties that meet their  requirements,” he adds.

“Of course, in this kind of market where the process can be quite accelerated, you must be ready to  make a decision quickly and be poised to act straightaway. That’s why it’s prudent to work with a  REALTOR® — home sellers can expose their properties immediately, and buyers are able to have instant access  to the latest listings posted to the MLS® System,” OREB's President advises. September’s  average   sale   price   for a    condominium-class   property    was $309,373, an increase of 9 per cent from last year while the average sale price of a
residential-class property was $487,438, an increase of 8 per cent from a year ago. Year to date figures show an 8.4 per cent and 8.1 per  cent increase in average sale prices for residential and condominiums respectively. *

“Now that condominium prices have recovered, we see condo sellers jumping back into the market to  take advantage of  that,  and  as  a  result,  condo  sales have been very robust and have again led the way in September’s unit sales,” President suggests. The $350,000 to $499,999 price range was the most prevalent price point in the residential market,  accounting for 43.5 per cent of September’s transactions while 28 per cent of residential sales were in the $500,000 to $749,999 range. The most active price point in the condominium was $225,000-$349,999, accounting for 56 per cent of the units sold. “September to November typically tend to be busy listing and sales months; however, there is a federal election coming up, which normally  brings a slowdown in the market. We haven’t seen that transpire this year, which suggests that  consumers are highly confident in our local economy and the Ottawa real estate market.” When asked to elaborate on the pressing issue of housing in the upcoming election, President states,  “We are closely monitoring the platforms of all parties, and any proposals that address supply  certainly have our support.” He continues, “Although Canada needs a broad-based national housing strategy which tackles the full  range of housing issues,  platforms  that  are  getting  it right  understand  that  real  estate is local,  and  policies must factor in regional differences.”

In addition to residential sales, OREB Members assisted clients  with  renting 2,117 properties since the beginning of the year.* The Board cautions that the average sale price can be useful in establishing trends over time but  should not be used as an indicator that specific properties have increased or decreased in value.  The calculation of the average sale price is based on the total dollar volume of all properties  sold.  Price  and  conditions will vary from neighbourhood to neighbourhood.
