The aggregate price for all sectors and major regions in Canada gained in April 2013 to $461,000, reaching a new all time high. It seems that the correction we had in the past few months is starting to go back up and test the prior trend line that started in January 2008. All data was taken from the MLS Home Price Index.

Inventory increased slightly to 6.6 months from 6.5 in March 2013, and sales to new listing ratio remained marginally unchanged. Nevertheless, the trend of inventories (green line in picture above) continues to be sloped upward while the trend of sales to new listing ratio (orange line in picture above) continues to be sloped downward. Indicating continued downward pressure in prices could be expected.
