Teranet-National Bank composite house price index held steady in April


Share post:

The Teranet-National Bank composite house price index which tracks home prices in 11 of Canada’s largest cities remained stable from March to April.

National Bank Financial Markets economist Daren King says the stabilization comes as resale market activity remains sluggish, with first-time homebuyers on the sidelines awaiting interest rate cuts from the Bank of Canada.

The report says home prices in seven of the 11 cities included in the index rose in April compared with March, after adjusting for seasonal effects.

The index was up 2.3% in Edmonton, while Montreal and Calgary both added 1.9% compared with March. Ottawa-Gatineau gained 0.5%, Vancouver and Hamilton, Ont., both gained 0.4% and Winnipeg rose 0.3%.

Meanwhile, Quebec City fell 2.1% compared with a month earlier, while Victoria dropped 1.9% and Toronto lost 1.2%. Halifax dropped 0.7%.

Compared with April 2023, the composite house price index was up 5.7%.
