Some housing prices fall in Montreal, Calgary and Winnipeg; national average up

TORONTO — Figures from Royal LePage suggest that Toronto had the hottest real estate market in the country during the second quarter, with double-digit increases in all types of housing.

The Vancouver market was also strong with double-digit price increases for two-storey homes and detached bungalows, although condo prices were up a more moderate six per cent.

But prices were down for some types of residential property in Montreal, Calgary and Winnipeg.

Royal LePage says other major markets across the country saw moderate increases or flat prices for most types of housing during the quarter, including in Halifax, Fredericton, Ottawa and Edmonton.

At the national level, the average price of a bungalow was up 7.5 per cent from last year at $438,938, the average price for two-storey detached houses rose 6.8 per cent to $471,002 and the average condo price was $268.583, up 3.9 per cent.
