Ottawa Real Estate Questions are frequently asked of me, and it is always my pleasure to provide somebody with a good answer that will clarify things for them and more than justify their utilising my Ottawa Real Estate Services.The other day a First Time Buyer couple advised me that their parents would be co-signing on the Mortgage and would therefore go on Title with them. It then begged the question ?.......Would the LAND TRANSFER TAX rebate of up to $2 000 that applies to First Time Buyers in Ottawa, apply to this young couple, as now their parents (who were not first time buyers)were on title, as opposed to only them.I asked the lawyer handling the closing about this specific Ottawa Real Estate Question and he made some inquiries to the Ottawa Ministry of Finance and the answer is a...

Ottawa Real Estate Questions can be answered very simply indeed. The Ottawa Real Estate Market is very `protected`from the hard times that have fallen on certain other quìeter Canadian`real estate markets.The reason for this is because Ottawa is a government city in Canada and is the Capital of Canada and as such it is a stable real estate market.Ottawa does not experience the highs and lows in Real Estate as do other Canadian markets.In fact, the annual capital appreciation growth is extremely stable and has been around 4-7% for approximately the past 50 years.This is why it is really a good idea to invest in this market as it is fairly predictable and stable. As a first time home buyer in the Ottawa Real Estate market, you might have some questions.Those questions I would be happy to ...
