Ottawa Real Estate Market in 2022

It shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone that Ottawa is one of the fastest growing real estate markets in Canada right now. The city has seen a huge amount of growth not only in its population but also the economic and social aspects as well. 

Why is Ottawa a Capital Choice?

There are a few factors that contribute to this growth such as the federal job market, university/college institutions, certain social initiatives and the huge surge of tech hubs within the city as well. Ottawa had a detailed plan for celebrating Canada 150 which many believe highlighted the City’s opportunity for development.

Many markets took a huge hit and required much time in recovery once the world was hit by Covid-19. The Ottawa real estate market was affected by this as well of course, however it bounced back quite fast as things returned to normal.

Derek Nzeribe, president and founder of House Collection Realty and Milborne Group’s regional director for Ottawa, stated that “In February 2020 from a month earlier, we saw numbers that were unprecedented with serious growth and a market that was still moving very quickly”. He also added that “Once the pandemic was declared and there was a bit of uncertainty, we saw a lot of that stall, but had there not been the pandemic and we continued on as business as usual, we would be in this scenario either way. The market was already heading in this direction.”

There’s been a steady migration of people coming to Ottawa for work, quality of life, and to take advantage of the low interest rates.

Many people moving to Ottawa are from the GTA or just relocating for work from other parts of Canada. Industries where these individuals are coming from are people working in the military, tech sector and government. They are relocating to Ottawa because there is better pricing on homes.

The Ottawa real estate board released figures indicating that the market is now returning to moderately healthy. 

In line with the growing demand for Ottawa real estate, builders and builders started work on around 10000 homes, an increase of 2000 over the previous year. Despite the construction of 9,950 houses, realtors are still contemplating a shortage of homes in the future. Because many companies and government are hiring thousands of people every year

What’s a Rich Text element?

The rich text element allows you to create and format headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, images, and video all in one place instead of having to add and format them individually. Just double-click and easily create content.

Static and dynamic content editing

A rich text element can be used with static or dynamic content. For static content, just drop it into any page and begin editing. For dynamic content, add a rich text field to any collection and then connect a rich text element to that field in the settings panel. Voila!

How to customize formatting for each rich text

Headings, paragraphs, blockquotes, figures, images, and figure captions can all be styled after a class is added to the rich text element using the "When inside of" nested selector system.
