I see almost the same situation in the Toronto Real Estate. The average price for March transactions was $362,052 – down less than five percent from the same month last year. It was worse the previous months, it's finally clearly visible that the bottom line has been hit and the real estate will finally resume its previous state. The statistics of sales and listings for February were terrible when compared to the February of last year (32% drop in sales) but the month of March was a lot better (only 7% drop in sales). The bad times are almost over:), thanks for the stats for your area.

Take care, Elli
