Staying in Touch – February 2022

StayingJanuary is already gone and February is here! An update from us to you. In this issue of our newsletter, learn more about the Ottawa & Canadian real estate market, mortgage tips, events in our community, ideas for simple kitchen renos, the value of window replacement, new residential vacant unit tax & more! February is also Heart month and of course Happy Valentines Day!

The real estate market continues to have low supply of homes for sale. In combination with pent up demand, the greater Ottawa market is selling well and average residential and condominium prices increasing. This is making our winter months an active market, as reported by the Ottawa Real Estate Board.

It is wonderful to have the canal open and many outdoor rinks in operation for everyone to enjoy, a setting to have fun with family and friends. February is Heart month! It is time for us to help the University of Ottawa Heart Institute, a great institution who works so hard for all of us. See more activities to enjoy in our newsletter.

Recently we supported the University of Women Foundation to raise money for their university scholarship fund. This virtual event featured a discussion with Elizabeth Hay, the author of the best selling novel, All Things Consoled, and Alan Neal, award-winning journalist and host of CBC Ottawa’s All in a Day. It was a delightful evening for many and was very successful.

Again, it may be that time of year some of us start thinking if we want to change our lifestyle. The challenge is where do you start? Understanding the market value of your home is key. Are there improvements you want to do/or are they necessary for you to do, to obtain top value. Where are you moving to? We can help you prioritize and answer your questions.

Hopefully by Spring we will be able to see more of you in person. As always, we would love to hear from you, whether a short chat on what you have been up to or questions about real estate. Feel free to call or send us an email.

Joan, Victoria and Luc
