Canadian existing home sales slip in May from April: CREA
TORONTO (Reuters) - Sales of existing Canadian homes fell 2.8 percent in May from a record high in April as inventories fell to all-time lows in key regions while prices continued to climb, a report from the Canadian Real Estate Association showed on Wednesday.
The industry group said its Canadian home price index was up 12.5 percent in the month from a year earlier, while actual sales, not seasonally adjusted, rose 9.6 percent from May 2015.
