***How the Ottawa Real Estate Board produces its monthly activities reports has been fundamentally changed to bring it in-line with the Canadian Real Estate Association's HPI Index.  As such we now show statistics for Single Family Homes, Town-Homes, and Apartment style dwellings without breaking them apart into freehold or condo ownership.
