5 Year Canadian Real Estate Trends

Real Estate TrendsIt comes as no surprise to most Canadians that, as the country continues to put the last few years of financial instability behind it, housing sales continue to rise. This graph, recently released by the Canadian Real Estate Association (CREA), demonstrates this, outlining some of the different trends that have impacted both spikes and declines. As the graph illustrates, sales in 2013 have been strong and continue to increase, signaling good things for the future. Even with CMHC guideline changes, criticized by some as a bad move as far as future home sales, Canadians are still purchasing and the real estate industry continues to thrive.
