    Canadian housing market calms down as prices rise

    Canadian home prices fell for the first time in two years due to higher interest rates. In April, the country’s reference prices fell 0.6% from the previous month, the first monthly decline since April 2020, according to data released Monday from the Canadian Real Estate Association. Meanwhile, the number of sales was down 12.6% month over month. “After two years after the record crash, housing markets in many parts of Canada have largely subsided over the past two months, in line with a jump in interest rates and buyer fatigue,” said Jill O’Dell, president of the association. The Bank of Canada raised interest rates to fight inflation, and markets are betting that the interest rate, which started the year at 0.25%, should rise to 3% over the next year. Bloomberg
