Good morning all,

Yes, I know, I know, this month's newsletter is a little tardy! But I wouldn't want to leave you hanging with no October stats! Better late than never right?? So, here you have it, a mid-month surprise ;)

The days are getting shorter and the holiday season is fast approaching, but activity in the Ottawa real estate market continues at a heightened pace, as buyers compete for what remains to be historically low inventory levels, particularly for centrally located single family homes....

In this month's edition:
  • As always, we'll look back on the Sales and Inventory Stats for the past month and also look a little closer at how this October compared to October 2020.
  • I have a fabulous new Featured Listing to share with you this month, in one of Ottawa's most sought after neighbourhoods, scroll on to find out where and get all the details!
  • While still historically low, we did see an increase in Mortgage Rates over the last two weeks, see below for a current rate overview.
  • Last but not least, we'll check out the Photo of the Month - which this month actually includes several photos, along with a little recommendation for a fun outdoor activity in nature...
