Teranet-National Bank House Price Index: Record annual price growth in April

After tying the annual growth record last month, the year-over-year price increase reached a new high of 18.8% in April.  This new record is peculiar, as only Halifax, which is included in the Composite 11 index, also experienced record annual growth this month. This new high is therefore the result of robust growth in all regions. In fact, of the 32 markets tracked, 87% experienced year-over-year price growth of 10% or more in April. The Teranet-National Bank HPI also had some of its most robust month-over-month growth in April thanks to the strength in the resale market in previous months. However, these strong price increases should begin to fade. Indeed, the resale market has slowed significantly over the past two months and the monthly growth in the index appears to have reached a ceiling. Since the Teranet-National Bank HPI is compiled from transactions recorded in the land register, there may be a lag of one or two months with the statistics published by the real estate boards, which are recorded at the time of the purchase offer. We should therefore see a stabilization of prices in the coming months.
