Good morning everyone,

I hope you are enjoying a fabulous weekend and happy father's day to all the dads out there! It's a lovely day to spend some time outside with family that's for sure.

Before we get going here, how do you like the new banner!?? Now featuring some of my recently sold properties, which I plan to update from time to time moving forward! These might look very familiar to some of you ;)

In this month's edition:
  • As always, we'll take a look back at the past month of stats in the Ottawa real estate market.
  • The talk of the town is of course the multiple increases to interest rates over the past weeks, so we'll take a quick look at where mortgage rates stand now.
  • I've got a fabulous featured listing to share with you - a stunning one bedroom condo in Centretown with a huge rooftop terrace ready for summer!
  • I have the first of a series of Real Estate Q&A short video's to share for a new section we'll call... question of the month! This month's question is; "when is the best time to sell your home?"
  • Finally, as usual, we'll wrap up with a photo of the month (hmm now I see my section titling has redundancies...)
May 2022 Sales Stats
  • In May 2022, members of the Ottawa Real Estate Board sold 1,846 residential properties, which is a decrease of 19.2% compared to May 2021.
  • There were 3,120 new properties listed for sale in May which is an increase of 0.2% compared to May 2021, leaving the total number of residential properties for sale at 2,129, an increase of 13.5% from the end of May 2021.
  • There is currently 1.2 months of Inventory on the market and a new listing sales rate of 59.2%. 
  • It took an average of 14 days for properties of all types to sell in May, which is 2 days longer than May 2021 and 2 days longer than in April 2022.

Overall, we are still in a seller's market in Ottawa but there are beginning to be more variances in sales across neighbourhoods, price ranges and property types resulting in more opportunities for buyers to avoid competing and to once again purchase properties with conditional offers. We certainly appear to be headed toward a more balanced market.

Mortgage Rates
At this time, these are the best advertised Mortgage rates among Canada's big Banks. Mortgage brokers are often able to get slightly better rates and there are also alternate "B" lenders with lower rates. If you are considering buying at this time and looking to determine monthly costs and what mortgage amount you would be comfortable with, I always recommend planning based on the going bank rates to ensure you are over planning until you have a pre-approval locked in at what will hopefully be a lower rate.
