Canadian home sales post small decline from July to August
Ottawa, ON, September 15, 2022 – 
Statistics released today by the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) show national home sales slowed slightly in August 2022.

Highlights:

  • National home sales edged down 1% on a month-over-month basis in August.
  • Actual (not seasonally adjusted) monthly activity came in 24.7% below August 2021.
  • The number of newly listed properties dropped 5.4% month-over-month.
  • The MLS® Home Price Index (HPI) edged down 1.6% month-over-month but was still up 7.1% year-over-year.
  • The actual (not seasonally adjusted) national average sale price posted a 3.9% year-over-year decline in August.

Home sales recorded over Canadian MLS® Systems edged down a slight 1% between July and August 2022. While this was the sixth consecutive month-over-month decline in housing activity, it was the smallest of the six as the national sales slowdown triggered by rising interest rates continues to moderate.
