Lisa Cesario and her partner are frustrated after trying to buy their first home . They’ve been house hunting in the Ottawa real estate market for six months and have been outbid twice for homes that ultimately sold for $75,000 to $100,000 more than their offers.
Cesario, 39, works as a middle school teacher in Gatineau, Que., and is worried that Ottawa’s housing market is more and more like those in Toronto and Vancouver, where sky-high prices have made real estate increasingly unaffordable.
