Confidence in Canadian housing market continues (NC)—The Royal LePage House Price Survey released Oct. 5 showed the average price of a home in Canada increased between 5.7 and 7.8 per cent in the third quarter of 2011, compared to the previous year. The strength of home price appreciation in the third quarter defied expectations as very low interest rates buoyed consumer confidence in a comparatively stable Canadian economy. Year-overyear gains appear deceptively strong in comparison to a weak third quarter of 2010. “The strength in Canada’s national housing market conceals signs of predictable softening in some regions,” said Phil Soper, president and chief executive of Royal LePage Real Estate Services. “The third quarter saw a return to a normal seasonal business cycle as price appreciation slowed in many areas—with some average values even falling slightly—after the busy spring trading season. A broader slowdown is expected in the months ahead but fears of a U.S.-style correction are completely unfounded.” In the third quarter of 2011, the national average price of a detached bungalow rose 7.8 per cent year-over-year to $349,974, while standard two-storey homes rose 7.7 per cent to $388,218 and standard condominiums rose 5.7 per cent to $239,300. “To best provide Canadians with an accurate look at the housing market, Royal LePage uses year-over-year comparisons as the housing market follows a

seasonal pattern. It is important to note that our 2011 third quarter results benefit greatly by going head-to-head with what was by far the previous year’s weakest period,” continued Soper. Sustained demand from foreign buyers helped drive prices up in the country’s largest markets as Vancouver’s standard twostorey homes rose 16.9 per cent year-over-year to $1,142,500 while detached bungalows in Toronto climbed 9.4 per cent to $518,433. Conversely, while the

volume of homes trading hands has increased in Alberta, house prices in the province remained soft with detached bungalows in Calgary falling 1.0 per cent in the third quarter. Similarly, detached bungalows and standard two-storey homes in Victoria fell 2.0 and 1.1 per cent respectively. More information about the Royal LePage House Price survey can be found at

Prices of homes in Canada are on an increase compared to the prices of 2010 and the strength in the national housing market softens. These increases are due to in part by the continued demand from foreign buyers.
