Stronger Spring Home Sales

Blog by Diane Cardoso | May 16th, 2014

Globe & Mail - May, 2014 - Teranet-National Bank’s house price index, which tracks 11 cities, hit an all-time high in April, with prices rising 0.5 per cent from March and 4.9 per cent from a year earlier.

“Home prices are starting to show early signs of accelerating – even when adjusting for quality,” Toronto-Dominion Bank economist Diana Petramala wrote in a research note after the numbers came out, saying prices have maintained more momentum this year than TD economists anticipated.

“We continue to believe that home price growth will moderate in the second half of 2014,” she added.
