Ottawa Real Estate – Is Now the Right Time to Buy?

Now that spring has arrived, many people are taking advantage of the nice weather to look at houses in the Ottawa area. Marketing trends show that, as the nice weather approaches, houses in the Ottawa area are selling much faster than they did over the winter.

Homes in Ottawa sold in an average of 25.15 days for the month of March. This has been steadily decreasing each month from 39.93 days in December of 2007.*

What does this information mean to you, the potential home buyer? It means that if you are truly interested in a property, you have less than a month to find it once it has been listed. Otherwise, you may lose it to another buyer!

The Peace Tower is Ottawa’s trademark and its name is a commemoration of Canada’s commitment to peace. The Memorial Chamber is located on the third floor of the Tower, and it honours Canadians who have died in armed conflicts since Confederation. The Peace Tower also holds an observation area and the Carillon which contains 53 bells weighing anywhere from less than 5 kg to more than 10 tons.
The Centre Block was affected by a large fire in 1916. Canada began rebuilding it while still fighting in the First World War. The new structure, designed in the Modern Gothic Revival style by John Pearson and Jean Omer Marchand, was completed by 1922. The Peace Tower was finished later in 1927.
In the summer Parliament Hill offers up a unique ceremony: every day at 10 am the Changing of the Guard takes place, and this year the ceremony will be held every day from June 24 to August 26 of 2006.

Parliament Hill with its big open square lends itself naturally as a meeting and entertainment venue. The Canada Day celebrations are held here and they include free concerts, spectacular fireworks, a flight demonstration by the Snowbirds (Canada’s precision aerobatic team), and you’ll only have to put up with short speeches by Canadian politicians.
