The Toronto Real Estate Board (TREB) reported a total of 11,303 sales in April 2015, the highest number ever recorded for the month and a 17 per cent increase over April 2014. New listings also increased over the previous year, jumping up five per cent.
National home sales fell 3.1 per cent from December of last year to January 2015, according to the latest month-over-month analysis from the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA). Although fewer sales were recorded in approximately 60 per cent of all housing markets, the country’s weakest markets altered national totals significantly. These regions included Edmonton, Sask. and Calgary, Alta.
