Year over year the price of a detached home increased by 1.1%, semi-detached by 2.1%, townhouse by 4.5% and an apartment 2.2%. Every category is positive. Only detached homes showed a slight decline when the rate of inflation was considered.

Over all the real estate market is normalizing. Traditionally prices of homes increased at the same level as inflation. At least for April 2019 that was the case.

“After a colder, quieter March, we’re finally seeing a much more active Spring Market,” stated OMDREB President Oliver Matas.
