Prices continued to rise slightly in March

After returning to growth territory in February, the Teranet-National Bank Composite Index™ continued to rise in March, with a small gain of 0.2% on the previous month. This increase in home prices comes at a time when the housing market has regained strength since November, buoyed in particular by exceptional demographic growth, slightly more advantageous fixed mortgage interest rates and the anticipation of policy rate cuts by the Bank of Canada. Although these factors will continue to support the real estate market in the months ahead, we are cautiously optimistic about a significant recovery in the housing market in the coming months and stronger price growth. Indeed, many uncertainties remain, including a potential further deterioration in the labour market for young people, who are facing the worst affordability conditions in decades.
