Movement from Quebec to Ontario

Welcome to Ontario hamre team remax.jpg

One factor that really caught our attention this weekend was the number of Quebec residence that came through our Open Houses over the weekend. 40% of the prospective Buyers that signed in were from the Quebec side of the river.  Most of these Buyers had their houses listing in Quebec already. They are shopping the Ottawa Real Estate market with the intentions of relocating as soon as possible. Many of them are just waiting to sell before they can actually proceed with an offer here in Ottawa.

It was an active weekend for real estate in the Ottawa Valley for Team Hamre at RE/MAX metro city. Our feel for the market is that Buyers are actively shopping with the vision of a quick closing. Our web site hits are high, our curb side marketing is active and our YouTube videos are being viewed in large numbers.  You can view our site at

Is there a better time to buy Real Estate in Ottawa? Mortgage Rates are still very attractive, the weather is favourable for viewings and the selection of inventory is still very favourable depending on the neighbourhood of choice.
