Will Your Home Qualify for the Carriage Trade Program?
Homes that are featured through the Carriage Trade program, must meet a specific set of criteria that our agents carefully assess. Depending on the market, these factors can vary as luxury in one city may come at a different price than another. Here are some of the key factors to consider:
- Prestige of the Neighbourhood – Some neighbourhoods are more sought after than others for luxury properties and this ultimately drives up home values as well. In Ottawa, these neighbourhoods include Rockliffe Park, Manotick, The Glebe, and Cedarhill Estates among others.
- Uniqueness of Amenities and Features – Luxury homes are generally not about fitting a mold, and the more unique the better! This can include elevators, car lifts, and even heated driveways!
- Desirability of Landscape and Design – Your luxury property will need to look the part both inside and out!
- Noteworthy history – sometimes the value of a home can be driven up by the historical significance of the property.
- Property Value – This one is largely driven by the previous 4 factors but it is a key deciding factor on whether or not a property will be included on Carriage Trade.
