End of Summer sales – Canada

TORONTO – Sales of existing homes in Canada rose in August from July, hitting the highest level since January 2010, the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA) said on Monday, but it predicted sales will peak in the third quarter and decline in 2015.

The industry group for Canadian real estate agents said sales were up 1.8% last month from July. Actual sales for August, not seasonally adjusted, were up 2.1% from August 2013.

CREA’s home price index rose 5.3% from August 2013, matching July’s year-over-year gain. The national average price for homes sold in August, not seasonally adjusted, was $398,618, up 5.3% from the same month last year.

“Sales activity in recent months has remained stronger than was anticipated earlier this year,” Gregory Klump, CREA’s chief economist, said in the report.
