Despite a wave of new projects, local developers in Ottawa say they have no plans to scale back apartment construction in 2020 as demand for units continues to rise.
Recently, PadMapper released a year-end report with one of the study’s key findings that it saw Ottawa rank the third-highest year-over-year increase in one-bedroom rents at 15.2 per cent in 2019.
Real estate experts say the capital’s rental market can be attributed to factors. A region with a booming tech scene and an unemployment rate below five per cent is drawing an influx of well-paid itinerant workers who prefer to rent rather than buy, they note. Meanwhile, more and more aging empty-nesters are selling their homes and opting to move into apartment buildings, where a growing number of their neighbours are millennials who can’t afford the down payment for a home in the capital’s equally robust housing market.
