Condo sales at a 4 year low
That’s the bad news, Ottawa condo sales for the month of March 2013 hit a 4 year low. With only 253 condos selling this March, 8.3% lower than 2012, 15.1% lower than 2011, and 21.6% lower than 2010.
Why? One theory is the ever increasing inventory of condos for sale is making it harder for buyers to choose. (Ref: More Choices, Fewer Sales)
The alternative theory is with so many new build condos completing, in construction and just starting, the buyers have better looking choices and are often comparing re-sales with new constructions, making it very important to prepare your condo for sale and be sure you know your competition.
