Ottawa Real Estate - July Stats (2023)

Stabilized July Resale Market Showing Positive Price Gains

Members of the Ottawa Real Estate Board (OREB) sold 1,263 residential properties in July through the Board’s Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) System, compared with 1,102 in July 2022, an increase of 15%. July’s sales included 979 in the freehold-property class, up 18% from a year ago, and 284 in the condominium-property category, a 6% increase from July 2022. The five-year average for total unit sales in July is 1,621.

“Both transactions and average prices are up from last July indicating consumers remain confident in the market notwithstanding the two recent quarter-percent interest rate hikes by the Bank of Canada. We’re only a month into the third quarter, but based on July’s positive indicators, we are likely to see solid year-over-year results in the second half,” says Ottawa Real Estate Board President Ken Dekker.

By the Numbers – Average Prices*:

  • The average sale price for a freehold-class property in July was $754,188, an increase of 5% from 2022, and a 1% increase over June 2023 prices.
  • The average sale price for a condominium-class property was $435,094 an increase of 2% from a year ago, although 3% lower than June 2023 prices.
  • With year-to-date average sale prices at $735,103 for freeholds and $433,447 for condos, these values represent a 9% decrease over 2022 for freehold-class properties and a 6% decrease for condominium-class properties.


“July’s average prices are showing positive gains over last year, and year-to-date numbers, as expected, are still closing the gap from the peak pandemic market activity of early 2022. Additionally, inventory continues to climb steadily as new listings are added to the housing stock, creating more options for homebuyers. August may be a slower month in Ottawa, but I wouldn’t take a vacation from shopping for your home.”

By the Numbers – Inventory & New Listings:

  • July’s new listings (2,234) were 6% lower than July 2022 (2,364) and down 19% from June 2023 (2,755). The 5-year average for new listings in July is 2,336.
  • Months of Inventory for the freehold-class properties has decreased to 2.7 months from 2.9 months in July 2022 but increased from 2.1 months in June 2023.
  • Months of Inventory for condominium-class properties has decreased to 2.3 months from 2.5 months in July 2022, but is up from 1.4 months in June 2023.
  • Days on market (DOM) for freeholds have increased to 26 days from 20 days in July 2022 and 23 days from June 2023.
  • Days on market (DOM) for condos have increased to 28 days from 20 days in July 2023 and 27 days in June 2023.


“Although we are in a sellers’ market again, the pandemic’s frenzy has calmed considerably. Sellers need to manage their expectations with true market activity — not every property will automatically see multiple offers or immediate sales. Ultimately, a property’s price is determined by how much a buyer is willing to pay. Using the marketing and negotiation skills of a professional licensed REALTOR® is instrumental for both buyers and sellers in this fluid market.”

REALTORS® also help with finding rentals and vetting potential tenants. Since the beginning of the year, OREB Members have assisted clients with renting 3,921 properties compared to 3,528 last year at this time, an increase of 11%.

目前的市场利率高涨,很多房东都苦不堪言,每个月的租金根本不够支付房贷和地税保险的费用,每月都要从自己的口袋里贴钱。渥太华房价呢,在高涨的利率下也短期内也没有上涨的可能。最近很多房东客户都来问我带着租客要怎么卖房?

1.联系你的租客,暗示一下目前自己的财政有困难,不得不放弃这个房子,近期会考虑卖房。你可以给租客提供两个选择,要么他现在去找一个新房子,你可以补偿他一个月的租金,也可以提供很好的推荐信给他未来的房东。如果他从现在起任何一个时间找到房子都可以搬走,你会按剩余的天数把付过的租金退给他。

2. 第二个选择呢是他可以选择继续住在里面,房子上市后如果有人来看房,经纪会提前至少24小时给租客通知,希望租客能配合一下收拾屋子并在被通知的时间离开房子方便让买家和经纪看房。 

如果租客在接到通知后并没有积极地找房子,而选择了继续居住,那在你房子上市的前几天最好亲自去房子一趟,给租客送点小礼物给点好处,把关系搞好。这样租客才愿意配合看房。 租客的居住状态对房子的出售情况是起着非常大作用的,卖房子最好的状态就是在上市期间没有人住在里面,该修修该刷墙的刷墙,做深度闪闪发亮的那种清洁,然后我们经纪会把房子打扮的漂漂亮亮的,让人一进来就眼前一亮,这样才能抓住买家的心理,把房子卖个好价钱,而且还能让房子出售地很顺利,不会来来回回地在市场上挂很长时间。

第二理想的状态呢,就是你的现租客生活比较讲究,屋子里井井有条,虽然我们不能挪动和改变房客的家居装饰,但是租客愿意配合卖家在有人来看之前收拾一下杂物把房子整理到至少是整洁的状态。这个时候上的盘呢,照片肯定是没有做过设计和装扮的好看,但至少还是会有人来看的。这个状态的房子,要想吸引人来看,价格一定要标的吸引人,除非你的房子有很大的优点或很稀缺,挂盘时状态又不好价格又略高的房子是不会有很多人想来看的。即使来的话也是和其他在售的房子比比,把这个房子当成一个对比对象去下别的房子的单。

如果租客住里面,挂盘呢还有一个非常重要的点需要注意:尽可能地和你的租客签一个N11, 目前的市场并不是房源非常短缺的,除非买家非你的房子不可。如果现租客没有一个明确的搬家日期的话,买家是不会想要接手一个烫手山芋的。即使下了单,买家也会在合同里要求卖家在交接之前把房客清走。那到这个时候呢,房客知道你是非要他搬走不可了,很可能会趁机敲你个竹杠,我们今年就有这样的一个房东,由于挂盘之前没能和租客达成一致,卖家又着急想卖房子,最后房子卖掉了不得不让房客搬家的时候,房客开口要了3万,最后协商到两万,一个交钱一手交钥匙。

其实像这样的案例呢,最好就是在挂盘之前就把房客的问题处理清楚先,争取能让房客搬走再卖。如果时间不允许,就一定要签个N11。无论是用什么代价,提前签总比最后被人掐着脖子签要好。

这个时候其实就是体现房东和房客之间的关系了,如果你平时和租客的关系融洽,房子有什么问题及时处理,事事有回应,那你的租客就会愿意搬走。

再有一个就是如果你在找租客的时候就审核地很严格,租客是个受过教育收入稳定且通情达理的人的话,他也会愿意配合你卖房。这就是为什么房子不能随便租,宁可空着也要租给好房客,就是因为一旦租给了一个不合格的租客,这个租客可能住一辈子也不想搬家,他也很难再找到其他的房子。

总结下来就是,首先联系你的租客,先预先通知一下再给书面的通知,然后根据房客搬家的计划,我们房产经纪可以配合,按照专业的方法去和房客沟通完成这个卖房全过程,直到你的房子顺利交接。

最后我想说的是,当房东有风险,找租客需谨慎。房子能带给投资人巨大的利润回报,当房东的需要不断地完善自己的专业知识,做到知法懂法,你的租客就会和你和平相处。

一年以来全市范围内房价几乎都是全体下跌,华人较多的社区Barrhaven/Kanata/RRS跌幅都是在百分之十几(图上77,90,26区域)但有些区域却是不跌反涨的,不会跟着市场的下滑而下滑,你知道是哪些区吗?

渥太华少有的几个不跌反涨的区域,有一个共同特点:均价都是渥太华最高 ,也就是说越高尚的社区,受市场影响越小. 

首先是大地豪宅区,比如南部典型的ESTATE HOME区Manotick的Rideau Forest,西区的Dunrobin shore,(80和93区域)总之拥有很大一块地或好景观的小区房,受市场影响较小.

其次是市区内的一些经典社区,比如Glebe,Rockcliffe park, (44和32区域)这些区域是西人比较追捧的,半个世纪以前就是豪宅区,本地人以住在这些区域为荣,居民具有一些排他性. 这些区域受市场价格影响也不大.

大数据都是比较笼统的,需要判断每个小区的精确数据才会对买房和卖房起到帮助. 目前的市场是卖房艰难的时期,买房捡漏的时期,需要根据不同区域的特征和走向去制定方向.

渥太华房价【红宝地产】2023.6月房市数据报告

转眼加息已经9次了,我记得去年的6月是最后一批成交到高价的一批,之后一路下跌,直到今年的2月才停,3-5月涨了三个月,6月政府又开始加息.  房产市场跟着每次利率调整,非常直接地给出反应. 

一年以来,渥太华的市场经过起伏,平均价从平均跌幅最大的-17%,到目前的同比-3.5%,足以证明渥太华房市的潜力和力量. 尽管利息一路攀升,但购房需求还是在一路增加的,无论是买房还是租房,可以明显感觉到新人的涌入.

挂盘量方面,今年6月比去年6月少了14%,可以看出渥太华的房产持有者的态度,稳定的收入支撑了继续持有的底气,虽然每月都是负现金流,但房东们明白,紧一紧裤腰带,守得云开见月明.

Ottawa Real Estate - June Stats (2023)

June’s Resale Market Eases into Summer

Members of the Ottawa Real Estate Board (OREB) sold 1,658 residential properties in June through the Board’s Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) System, compared with 1,493 in June 2022, an increase of 11%. June’s sales included 1,234 in the freehold-property class, up 10% from a year ago, and 424 in the condominium-property category, a 16% increase from June 2022. The five-year average for total unit sales in June is 1,881.

“Although June’s transactions surpassed last year’s, the number of sales, average prices, and new listings declined on a week-to-week basis over the course of the month. Compounded by the typical summer decline in activity, the Bank of Canada’s interest rate adjustment at the beginning of the month may have also flattened the curve,” says Ottawa Real Estate Board President Ken Dekker.

By the Numbers – Average Prices*:

  • The average sale price for a freehold-class property in June was $746,445, a decrease of 4% from 2022, but still on par with May 2023 prices.
  • The average sale price for a condominium-class property was $448,380, an increase of 2% from a year ago and up 1% over May 2023 prices.
  • With year-to-date average sale prices at $731,847 for freeholds and $432,885 for condos, these values represent a 10% decrease over 2022 for freehold-class properties and a 7% decrease for condominium-class properties.

 

“Supply is trending in the right direction. The increase in inventory is encouraging and indicates sellers have confidence in the market. A growing resale housing stock will result in more selection for buyers and more sales,” Dekker suggests.

By the Numbers – Inventory & New Listings:

  • June’s new listings (2,758) were 14% lower than June 2022 (3,212) and down 2% from May 2023 (2,822). The 5-year average for new listings in June is 2,802.
  • Months of Inventory for the freehold-class properties has increased to 2.1 months from 1.9 months in June 2022 and 1.5 months in May 2023.
  • Months of Inventory for condominium-class properties has decreased to 1.4 months from 1.6 months in June 2022, although up from 1.3 months in May 2023.
  • Days on market (DOM) for freeholds stayed on par with last month at 23 days and increased to 27 days for condos compared to last month (26 days).


“We are looking forward to a strong second half of 2023 in terms of sales volume and prices compared to last year. Whichever side of the transaction you are on, the advice of a professional REALTOR® who has their pulse on the week-to-week variabilities in Ottawa’s resale market is priceless.”

REALTORS® also help with finding rentals and vetting potential tenants. Since the beginning of the year, OREB Members have assisted clients with renting 3,336 properties compared to 2,919 last year at this time, an increase of 14%.

Ottawa Real Estate - May Stats (2023)

Ottawa resale market heats up in May

Sales increase for the first time since February 2022

Members of the Ottawa Real Estate Board (OREB) sold 1,939 residential properties in May through the Board’s Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) System, compared with 1,830 in May 2022, an increase of 6%. May’s sales included 1,477 in the freehold-property class, up 8% from a year ago, and 462 in the condominium-property category, a 1% increase from May 2022. The five-year average for total unit sales in May is 1,961.

“Typically the highest-selling month, May’s transactions did not disappoint,” says Ken Dekker, Ottawa Real Estate Board President. “This month we saw the first year-over-year unit sales volume increase since February 2022. It is a promising year for sellers barring any interest rate adjustments, as we saw a correlated drop in sales every time there was an interest rate hike in 2022.”

“However, with only five to six weeks of inventory, we are in a strong seller’s market. With the pent-up high demand and sales volume increasing, we are likely to see upward pressure on prices as demand continues to outstrip supply.”

By the Numbers – Average Prices*:

  • The average sale price for a freehold-class property in May was $745,902, a decrease of 7% from 2022, but still on par with April 2023 prices.
  • The average sale price for a condominium-class property was $442,859, decreasing 6% from a year ago. However, it marks a 2% increase over April 2023 prices.
  • With year-to-date average sale prices at $727,728 for freeholds and $428,394 for condos, these values represent a 12% decrease over 2022 for freehold-class properties and a 9% decrease for condominium-class properties.


“We are not seeing steep price escalations yet. May’s average prices stayed on par with April’s, although prices are well over what we saw at the end of 2022. With demand mounting in Ottawa’s chronically undersupplied market, I expect the average sale price will surpass last year’s figures for a month over the same month in the latter half of 2023 again—provided we do not see interest rate hikes.”

By the Numbers – Inventory & New Listings:

  • May’s new listings (2,822) were 9% lower than May 2022 (3,117) and up 32% from April 2023 (2,140). The 5-year average for new listings in May is 2,922.
  • Months of Inventory for the freehold-class properties has increased to 1.5 months from 1.2 months in May 2022 but down from 1.9 months in April 2023.
  • Months of Inventory for condominium-class properties has increased to 1.3 months from 1 month in May 2022, although down from 1.9 months in April 2023.
  • Days on market (DOM) for freeholds decreased from 27 to 23 days and 33 to 26 days for condos compared to last month.

“Given our housing stock challenges, some neighbourhoods are again in multiple offer territory. REALTORS® have up-to-the-minute market data and are best positioned to help both buyers and sellers in this evolving competitive resale market.”

REALTORS® also help with finding rentals and vetting potential tenants. Since the beginning of the year, OREB Members have assisted clients with renting 2,731 properties compared to 2,230 last year at this time, an increase of 22%.

* OREB 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 will vary from neighbourhood to neighbourhood.

渥太华房价【红宝地产】2023.5月房市数据报告

自2022年2月以来,销售量首次增长。渥太华房地产局(OREB)的成员通过多重上市服务®(MLS®)系统在五月份售出1,939套住宅物业,相比之下,2022年五月份售出了1,830套,增长了6%。五月份的销售包括住宅物业类别的1,477套,比去年同期增长了8%,以及共管物业类别的462套,比2022年五月份增长了1%。五月份的总销售套数的五年平均值为1,961套。

"通常来说,五月份是最繁忙的销售月份,而今年的交易量也不令人失望," 渥太华房地产局主席肯·德克尔(Ken Dekker)表示。"本月我们看到了自2022年2月以来首次出现的同比销售量增加。除非有利率调整,对于卖家来说,这将是一个有希望的年份,因为我们在2022年每次利率上调时都会看到销售量的下降。”

"然而,我们只有五到六周的存货量,所以我们处于一个强势的卖方市场。随着积压的高需求和销售量的增加,我们很可能会看到供不应求继续推高房价的压力。"

数据统计 - 平均价格:

五月份住址类别物业的平均售价为$745,902,比2022年下降了7%,但与2023年4月的价格持平。 共管类别物业的平均售价为$442,859,比去年同期下降了6%。然而,它相比于2023年4月的价格上涨了2%。 住宅类别物业的年度平均售价为$727,728,共管类别物业的年度平均售价为$428,394,这些数值分别比2022年下降了12%和9%。

"我们还没有看到房价出现急剧上涨。五月份的平均价格与四月份基本持平,尽管价格已经超过了2022年底的水平。由于渥太华市场一直供不应求,需求不断增加,我预计平均售价将再次超过去年同月份的水平,前提是我们不会看到利率上调。”

数据统计 - 存货量和新上市房源:

五月份的新上市房源(2,822套)比2022年五月份(3,117套)减少了9%,比2023年四月份增加了32%。五月份新上市房源的五年平均值为2,922套。 住宅类别物业的存货月数从2022年五月份的1.2个月增加到了1.5个月,但比2023年四月份的1.9个月,有所减少。 共管类别物业的存货月数从2022年五月份的1个月增加到了1.3个月,尽管比2023年四月份的1.9个月,有所减少。

自由持有类别物业的市场供应周期(DOM)从上个月的27天减少到了23天,而共管类别物业的DOM从33天减少到了26天。

"鉴于我们的住房库存挑战,一些社区再次进入了多重报价区域。房地产经纪人具备最新的市场数据,并且在这个不断变化的二手房市场中最适合帮助买家和卖家。”

房地产经纪人还协助寻找租赁房源和筛选潜在租户。自今年年初以来,OREB成员已经协助客户租赁了2,731套房产,相比去年同期的2,230套,增长了22%。

渥太华房价【红宝地产】2023.4月房市数据报告

渥太华房市2023年4月报告,价格正在追平去年高点,从年初以来已经涨回来13.9%.

在经历了疫情后的价格大涨和加息后的大跌后,4月呈明显上升趋势. 抢offer情况已经在一些旺区比比皆是,挂盘时间明显缩短,自由产权从上个月的34天降到了27天,公寓从上个月的39天降到33天.

价格方面,从今年的1月开始回暖到现在的4个月时间,已经比谷底也就是去年12月,上涨了13.9%. 目前一套自由产权物业的平均价格是$747,123, 比去年同期下降10%,比上个月上升了5%.公寓的均价是$435875,比去年同期下跌了8%,比上个月上涨了4%.

销售量方面,2023年4月一共售出了1488套房源,其中包括1156套自由产权和332套公寓物业. 这比去年同期的1876套下降了21%.

新挂盘量方面,今年4月的新挂盘是2144套,比去年4月下降了25%,但比上个月上升3%.

在市房源方面,4月的在市房源为2436套,自由产权物业仅可供1.9个月的销售,比今年3月的2.3个月库存明显缩短,而去年同期特别火爆的时候是0.9个月. 公寓方面,目前的库存也是1.9个月,上个月是2.1个月库存,去年同期是0.8个月的库存.

出租物业方面,截止今年四月已经租出了2151套物业,比去年同期的1786套上升了20%. 目前的租房市场也是一票难求,最好出租的townhouse已经出现抢offer现象.

根据以上总结,可以看出目前房源供货量处于短缺状态,市场已经从年初的买家市场转变成了卖家市场. 虽然现在的经济形势不是很乐观,但房产市场背道而行. 房市最直接的控制因素是供需关系,房源量少,刚需买家曾多,直接决定了价格的走向趋势. 去年的低谷转眼即逝了.

对于买家的建议: 如果是自己住,无论什么时候都不要犹豫,拥有自己喜欢的家永远是最坚定的信念.

对投资者的建议,利息还没有尘埃落定,如果你上几月买到了,那么恭喜你,这个月涨了5%. 如果还没买到,不要和自住的人去抢,找你的经纪帮你看紧了,有好的deal,出租回报高的,现在还有一些捡漏的机会.

对卖家的建议,目前的房源供应及度短缺,如果涨息以来你已经苦不堪言了,现在是好机会翻身. 有一些带着租客的房子,如果有懂Rule的经纪帮你,也会卖出不错的价格. 近期我会出一篇教程,《如何带着租客出售你的房产》敬请期待

Ottawa Real Estate - April Stats (2023)

Resale Market Springs Back in Favour of Sellers

Members of the Ottawa Real Estate Board (OREB) sold 1,488 residential properties in April through the Board’s Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) System, compared with 1,876 in April 2022, a decrease of 21%. April’s sales included 1,156 in the freehold-property class, down 18% from a year ago, and 332 in the condominium-property category, a decrease of 29% from April 2022. The five-year average for total unit sales in April is 1,739.

“Ottawa’s resale market is on a steady upward trajectory, narrowing the comparison gap to peak pandemic activity in 2022. However, with new listings not keeping pace, the available housing stock is declining, and with less than two months of inventory — we’re back into seller’s market territory,” says Ottawa Real Estate Board President Ken Dekker.

By the Numbers – Average Prices*:

  • Average prices have increased by 13.9% in four months since the market low in December 2022.
  • The average sale price for a freehold-class property in April was $747,123, a decrease of 10% from 2022. However, it marks a 5% increase over March 2023.
  • The average sale price for a condominium-class property was $435,875, decreasing 8% from a year ago, but still a 4% gain over March 2023.
  • With year-to-date average sale prices at $718,633 for freeholds and $421,722 for condos, these values represent a 13% decrease over 2022 for freehold-class properties and a 10% decrease for condominium-class properties.


“Upward pressure on sales prices continues with average prices increasing for the fourth month since the market low in December. Additionally, multiple offer situations have returned to certain neighbourhoods and overall days on market are maintaining their downward trend. There continues to be low inventory in certain property classes and new product is coming to the market at a slower rate, which is affecting supply.”

By the Numbers – Inventory & New Listings:

  • April’s new listings (2,144) were 25% lower than April 2022 (2,843) and up 3% from March 2023 (2,089). The 5-year average for new listings in April is 2,575.
  • Months of Inventory for the freehold-class properties has increased to 1.9 months from 0.9 months in April 2022 but down from 2.3 months in March.
  • Months of Inventory for condominium-class properties has increased to 1.9 months from 0.8 months in April 2022, although down from 2.1 months in March.
  • Days on market (DOM) for freeholds decreased from 34 to 27 days and 39 to 33 days for condos compared to last month.


“These numbers are static, snapshots in time. REALTORS® can give buyers and sellers a fulsome day-to-day picture of how the market is shifting and heating up this season. They have their fingers on the pulse of each neighbourhood in the city and can help buyers and sellers make localized, strategic, data-informed decisions.”

REALTORS® also help with finding rentals and vetting potential tenants. Since the beginning of the year, OREB Members have assisted clients with renting 2,151 properties compared to 1,786 last year at this time, an increase of 20%.

* OREB 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.
