CREA Updates Resale Housing Forecast

Ottawa, ON, September 15, 2016 – The Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) has updated its forecast for home sales activity via the Multiple Listing Service® (MLS®) Systems of Canadian real estate Boards and Associations in 2016 and 2017.

 

Canadian housing market trends have largely evolved in line with previous expectations over the second quarter of 2016, with the exception of sales activity in British Columbia and Ontario.

 

Sales in the Lower Mainland of British Columbia have braked more abruptly than anticipated, reflecting buyer uncertainty following the introduction of the new property transfer tax on Metro Vancouver home purchases by foreign buyers. By comparison, transactions in Ontario have held steady out in recent months near record levels and have yet to show signs of cooling.
