多倫多6月住宅銷售按月跌15.1%

Toronto

加拿大Real Estate Association(CREA)公佈,加拿大在6月的住宅銷售按月跌6.7%,當中多倫多的銷售跌15.1%,成為主要拖累因素。

但CREA的樓價指數顯示,加拿大整體樓價按年仍有15.8%的升幅;其中,多倫多的樓價就有按年25.3%的升幅;但按月計,多倫多的樓價錄得0.7%的微跌。

CREA指,多倫多所在的Ontario省早前推行包括向海外買家徵收15%稅款的樓市降溫政策,令潛在買家都轉趨審慎觀察的態度,不急於入市。

“The recent increase in interest rates could reinforce a lack of urgency to purchase or, alternatively, move some buyers off the sidelines before their pre-approved mortgage rate expires,” Gregory Klump, CREA’s chief economist, said in a statement.
