Year over year the price of a detached home increased by 0.66%, semi-detached by 0.78%, townhouse by 5.31% and an apartment -3.44%. Every category is positive with the exception of apartments, which is the first time for the past several months. It is a significant decrease. Detached homes and semi’s showed a slight decline when the rate of inflation was considered.

“Despite the constraints of the ‘Stress Test’ on Buyers getting mortgages and the foreign tax on international investors, many homes are selling at or near their asking prices – and in some cases above asking price,” says OMDREB President Oliver Matas.

Thankfully, residential real estate prices are stable. Traditionally, home prices have increased at the same rate as inflation. We aren’t seeing this yet. Keep your fingers crossed.
