Staying in Touch – July 2021

Hello Everyone, Happy Summer!

Summer is here and we are all enjoying it!

The real estate market is changing, more supply and not as many multiple offer situations. The sales prices are excellent and the rental market has strength. It is a good time to buy an investment property. We have had good success with helping clients buy and rent the property they purchased.

A snapshot of June year to date residential sales in Kanata, Stittsville and surrounding areas is provided below. Please click here to read the recent statistics published by the Ottawa Real Estate Board for June and year to date for Ottawa. We can also provide you with an update on your specific neighborhood and housing types including condominiums.

            

Preparing your home for market may take some time, we are happy to help you get started to be able to achieve the results you want. We can help figure out what to focus on, provide contacts to help prepare your home and provide an update on your home’s market value.

The Royal LePage comprehensive survey of 2,000 boomers from coast-to-coast unveiled key trends within this powerful demographic. With over 9.1 million boomers in Canada, their real estate and purchasing decisions are far reaching.
