March saw a continued decline in city wide sales activity. Number of sales dropped 9% below last year and 28% below typical levels for this time of year. Sales have only been rising for more affordable product in the detached and attached sectors under $350,000.
Relatively slow sales activity impacted the number of new listings, which fell almost 14% compared to last year. Less inventory however didn’t help to stabilize prices and benchmark price eased to $413,900, 5% below last year’s levels and just below levels recorded last month.
